Nice Steven!
I'm still waiting on finding a badge for my little Type H 1925 Cub. If I can find a badge, I'd probably buy a brass blade repro for it.
Made a cage cap from an electrical box plug. Haha

Is that base cast brass? I thought I remembered having seen a Polar Cub with a brass base before.

I am missing one of the 3 screws that secures the blade if anybody is holding - I think that base was painted --Alex?

I came so close to buying this one off eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Polar-Cub-Type-D-Electric-Desk-Fan-2-Speeds-6-Inch-Blades
It was buy it now for $70 including shipping. I don't know what they're worth, but I'd guess maybe $100?

Not perfect, but I dig it with the blades after painting them and cutting the plug to act as a temporary badge. Haha
