I just finished up on this fan. Circa 1951-54? it was over stamped couldn't tell it were a 1 or 4. AB/SC 3 speed on the base. I painted everything a rustic mist except the blade and upper pole. The aluminum blade was originally painted but I stripped it and wanted to shine it up. I went through all kinds of prosses to get it shiny. It was very corroded  underneath  . It was a pain. I'd rather polish a  brass blade any day then a aluminum one. It runs and oscillates smoothly in 3 distinct speeds.
