This is indeed true and sad.   I've been the victim of broken fans in shipping and I had one failure when I had a fan "professionally packed" by the UPS store.    I like to look at this a different way.   If it wasn't for this group of collectors, they would mostly all wind up in the land fill.   On balance, you have to expect some damage but the ones resurrected vs. the ones damaged are 99%.   It is fortunate that your damaged fan part is easily replaced.

This is exactly how I feel about the loss of something old. I once dropped a Jim Bean decanter when I was about 16 and I was nearly in tears.

I really got very lucky when I bought my pancake from ebay that something like this didn't happen. The person I bought if from just stood it up in a box and sent that. Somehow it survived and only the cage was shot.

Yes ... Four years later and it would be nice to know how this one turned out. Looks like Steven pulled this one back from the abyss and got it on the right track.
