She was dirty, bent out of shape and splattered in several places, but she washed up pretty nice. 

Even dirty, she hummed right along and blew very well!
She had been rattled, shaken, scuffed up, but was very quiet.  So I thought $3 was a worthwhile

investment for some more blow in my house. 

I would like some more info on her if you're willing to share???  Please?
I'm thinking maybe 1970's?  Frigid Model FD123-N  Brooklyn, New York 11236
Three speed PSC motor.   The push button switches are inherently noisy.
Spring loaded oscillator stops.  Anybody know what they mean by "double oscillator"?

This fan is made by Goldstar. I know very little about them other than they were made somewhere in Korea. Stout little motors and very quiet.

The Goldstar version I believe was sold at Sam's Club and the model for that one is FD-3031

The age is probably early to mid 1980's.

Double oscillator is referring to the position of the oscillator arm at the neck. Kind of a goofy feature, similar to Panasonic's 5-way oscillation. Nothing really too special, just allows you to rotate the swing axis to different home positions.

I remember buying a Goldstar FD-2320 9" fan at Sam's back then. Clear blades that later got broken and replaced with brown Galaxy blades.

That fan dates to 1978 and maybe up to 1980, i sold them. The more deluxe version was sold at Bambergers/Macys*s when i worked there and was an OSH123-8 and had a 3 wire cord, chrome ring in the center of the grille and still sits on the top of my refrigerator in the kitchen and runs every week. Take care of it and that fan will last a long time. That model with 2 wire cord and white grille emblem was a fill-in for us when we couldnt get more of the OSH model... you have made my day just to see it!

also the double oscillator feature was to refer to "Detents" in the neck positioning so you could have the fan oscillate to the right or left of a center arc without having to move the base (for mounted applications) my OSH123 model has a 5 way series of detents...

Thank you guys for the fan info.  I may have to give this one to my daughter, since date of manufacture coincides
with her date of birth...
Thanks,  John.
Happy Fanning!
