Most likely German. The 'LEISTG.' on the motor tag is probably short for Leistung which means Power in German.

Absolutely can confirm Jim's posting.

The 5 spoke cage indicates it is the "O 20er 250" model. The different models can be seen here
at Ulrich Stuermer's excellent web site at: http://www.ulrich-stuermer.de/index.php?id=21&herst=85

A stunning specialised collection of German fans (mostly).

Obeta was mainly a marketing company and we believe assembled fans from pieces from different sources.

Jim is spot on that we now believe that Max Levy had cages from the same source as they seem identical.
The probability being that Max produced the cages himself as he was a major manufacturer and both companies were based in Berlin.

The reason it is not labelled is that the cage logo has been lost.

Thanks so much everyone.  Someone contacted me wanting information on it and I had no clue what I was looking at besides cool.  Of course I’m going to ask their plans for it.  If anyone has a price idea please pm me.  I’d love to ad this guy to the fold.

The only indication I have is an eBay.de "Buy it now" offer from May last year (2019) for the identical model Obeta fan.
I do not know if it sold though.


The Euro-US$ exchange then was 1.12 = US$145.6

Thanks Pete, that seems really cheap for any kind of BB BC fan.
