CASE CLOSED...Thanks to Steve for posting the link!  It appears to be 1924-1926 as my fan has everything noted in the "K" letter code and the older Emerson badge used before the pyramid "Built to Last" badge came out in 1927.

 K    By 1924-25 and shortly after 28xxx and 29xxx types came out.  New motor winding/speed coil, switch base changed from ceramic to composition, hubs painted gold.  Press-in oilers, low "screen door" handle,  cage struts still with extra bends (not twists).

I looked in the reference section but couldn't find a way to date an older 29646.  Can an approximate date be found by using the serial number K41616 on the tag? The fan has a black steel cage, brass Parker blades, no capacitor, and it has the brass "button" on top of the gear box where the vertical shaft seats.
