You should be able to date your fan to a particular year. Look on the motor tag in the lower right hand corner for a very small two digit "date code". Add 20 to that number to get the year your fan was made.
Hopefully the date code will be visible. I have a AT with a "28" date code making the fan from I like these fans, very well built.

The next Emerson Junior which was made in had an attractive red, black, and brass badge. It was available in both oscillator and non-oscillator models. The base was covered and contained a switch.
