I saw this Emerson Trojan fan in a store in Canada  and he is asking an outrageous price of $490 USD because the fan is completely missing the switch assembly underneath for starters It is on consignment so the guy did not know much about it What is a good price ? I was thinking in the range of $200-250 USD The only concern I have is that parts are going to be expensive and hard to find Am I correct?

I would get it, even if you have to spend $200 on a switch you would still be doing good.   You should be able to find a comparable Emerson switch to work.  You would most likely have to rewind it so you would have a couple speeds like the original.

I agree with everyone else, a great price for a fan of that rarity even missing the switch. I would buy it in a heartbeat, even if I had to put it on credit!  :up:

I hope you can nab this fan Cam.  There are so many talented folks in the afca that can help complete it and you'll still be able to double your money should you call King's X.   The nature of this discovery is very interesting and rare these days.  Canada, Montana, it must be breathtakingly beautiful in your back yard.  Please keep us posted and good luck.
