Jim, so often your photos do not appear.  I use Safari and there are no photos in your posts.

That’s an odd one especially given they misspelled “Springfield “   My guess is it was one that was made after the fact. I can’t believe that the factory would let that out, even if a prototype. Surely the R&D engineer would have proof read it before making stamping dies.

Can you believe someone made tooling for that and didn't proofread it!?!?!

I sure do now Jim.   That's a real odd one and I could not even to make up a story why it is as it is.   No motor tag on the fan?  Looks  like an 1159 List and no earlier than 1912 model.  Did this fan come out of South America?

Here’s my two cents that aren’t worth a penny.  I have three 1159’s all missing the banner. Apparently they were easily lost. I’m guessing someone who got straight A’s in shop class and D’s in spelling made their own. I’m pretty sure the earlier 1159 had grease cups on front and rear. The one pictured has an oil cup on the front so it’s not like it’s the first one made. It’s still pretty cool though. 👍

A lot of the old R&M fans have lost their flag but many still retain them.  A very thin badge affixed to the cage with small bits of solder making me think the solder gave way and the badge went away.
I have always wondered when the gear back oscillators were made that had the front grease cup.  I have an 1153 and several others with the usual oil cup mounted below the motor shaft.   I have thought the grease cups were on the early ones but not the very first gear back oscillators that were made by Westinghouse in 1911 with numerous difference from the R&M made gearbacks and they have the bottom mounted oil cup.  It would make sense that R&M tried the front grease cup then, like GE, quickly went to the oil cup. What seem to be the later gear backs have the oil cup.
