Is this worth even close to 8 grand?

Someone posted that one on the site recently. I think he was thinking about having the missing ornate plate cast or something.

That back cover is made of unobtanium.

If I'm shelling out eight grand on a fan, it won't be on that husk of a fan.

I wouldn't either but I know it is a very desirable name as far as fans go.   I don't know diddly poo about the 1890's - 1910ish pricing except it is all expensive.    Even with my very limited knowledge I was pretty sure that price was super high based on what was left of the fan.
Thanks!

That fan would probably bring more than $8K if it was complete.
