I found this fan last week at a local flea market.  No brass.  No cast iron.  But I couldn't pass this by due to the exceptional original condition.  I wouldn't have expected to find something like this at a flea market.  This is a little R & M 4602.  Steel blade, steel cage.  3-speed oscillator.  Works perfectly.  Paint is essentially 100% with much of its pinstripes.  What sold me was the condition of the original power cord.  A couple of frays, but flawless otherwise.  A super nice original.

I have one just like it that I too bought at a flea market. It was my first fan and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Thanks for the information, Russ.  It looks like 1929 was the year.  I guess the Depression didn't do much for sales.
