I reckon quite a few of you were waiting at the door before the estate sale even opened. Did a member get it?

What would something like that sell for, if both the seller and buyer knew what they had?

I don't know for sure, but A LOT. Telephone booth fans rarely come round, and this type is the rarest from what I know.

I saw a pancake sell for $6,000, so I wouldn't be surprised if it could fetch ten.

The Auction House was called “Prestigious Estate Sales”, and they had Nazi memorabilia, Old katanas, and other antiquities. I bet it didn’t sell for a song, but probably less than it’s worth

Good on whoever got it. The last time one came up I can remember, an auctioneer in Ft Wayne contacted us on this site. He knew how to sell stuff, I was on the phone and the price was out of site before you could blink. The seller was a very happy person.

I already saw in the pictures of this sale a GE Pancake of unknown year (hard to tell because the picture was taken at a distance, but could tell it was a stick mount if that's a clue to anyone as to the age of the fan), an Eck Hurricane side Oscillator, like the one that was given away as the raffle prize at Fan Fair this year, and what appeared to be a Jandus Ball Motor fan in another picture. So this person whoever owned this estate had some serious cash to throw around to have those fans in his collection...  :wondering:  :shock:

That's probably the same fan that was at the estate sale the OP mentioned initially, just checked the listing and it currently has 17 bids and is currently going for $3,350 so hopefully someone here gets that fan and not some looney person that would convert that fan into a lamp! 
That fan is too rare and valuable to be making it into a lamp!  :pissed :down: :X

Why would they let something go for 1/4 of the value? Doesn't seem fair. By "Estate Sale" I didn't mean the owner, I meant the estate sale company.

The estate was not given good advice on that fan... The estate could have used the $$ I am sure! But a flipper got it... That's a shame...

You're talking about the second sale, I was only talking about the Dragon Fan. It sold for $5500 on eBay and was reported to have sold for $1500 at the estate sale.
