An antique GE coin operated brass blade fan. This fan is working, plug in and turn on, it works and blows lots of air. The coin operation knob is missing. Coin storage cover door that would hold the coins has been removed, see photos for detail. It is as find still in original un-restore condition. Can’t check the coin operated mechanism work or not as The’Insert Nickel’ knob was missing. I assume the coin mechanism is bypassed somehow, Now It is operated by switch with one speed and it works. The fan is just under 18 1/2″ tall x 13″ in diameter x 8 1/4 deep and weighs 26 pounds. Built like a tank! The bottom part of the cage is slightly out of shape a little bit as shown; just a little, the fan blade moves freely anyway and plenty of room; no damage on fan blade as I can see, blade is straight like a arrow and have no crease; a little polish work will bring this fan back to life. It has some vibration when running but is mostly smooth and it blows plenty of air. The fan shows wear and use but is overall in very good used condition. A cool, hard to find fan. Makes a great display piece. The item “Antique General Electric GE Nickel Coin Operated Hotel Fan Brass Blades Taxi Fan” is in sale since Wednesday, April 11, 2018.
