William H. Fauber of Chicago goes far back; not sure if they invented the 1-piece crank.
The "3-arm" sprocket pictured might not be that old. I may refer to it as Fauber Special, or 3-hole (or 6).

A later variant attributed to Great Western Mfg. Co. La Port, IN. (1920's) moved the drive pin from a separate "ear" on one of the larger holes, to instead be integral with one of the arms; perhaps stronger, and probably simpler to make.

The item pictured also has a change, the six holes are circular, whereas the older pattern had shapes that looked like vampire teeth, (or the circles looked more like mushrooms with short stems). So, maybe 3rd and last generation, early to mid 1920's.
Value, depend on who wants it; I got mine with a Fauber crank stuck in a Fauber threaded bracket, that came with a frame.
