Those have a crinkle finish & 2 bearings as apposed to the standard single bearing, they often have tags where they were used - - you may want to replace the capacitor with a modern solid state one as below, also a good time to put new felt on the base

FYI - The 77 series of Emerson fans featured overlapping blades and were a residential model. 

The Government spec Emersons were 79 series, which didn't have the overlapping blade design. As mentioned these are dual bearing motors. I had a 79648-AP-G, which was a government model and it was a great running fan.

Video of it -

I believe the 79 series Emersons used the Improved Parker Blades. 

I saw one of these fans at a local antique store last year but didn't get it because they wanted over $100 for it...  :X

I replace the original oil filled capacitor with a Mylar or polyester film capacitor...
12" fan has 1.7 and I replace with 1.5 uf. Better efficiency at higher house voltages 120 VAC plus.
16" fan has 2.7 and I replace with 2.5 uf. Better efficiency at higher house voltages 120 VAC plus.
I buy capacitors rated at 400 VAC or higher.
These values have been tested and verified to increase efficiency with tachometers an watt meters.
