German WWI propeller No.2
4 Attachment(s)
Dear folks,

since my first posting a while ago, I got a second German prop which is in excellent condition, and which carries metal plating on the tips and almost half length of the leading edge.

From what I can see the data of the prop is as follows:

Manufacturer: Wolff, Berlin
Serial No. 3054
Engine Type: MERCEDES, 260HP
Pitch: 178
Diameter (not measured but taken from the hub imprint): 315cm
6 bolts

Can someone kindly give me a hint on which a/c type this prop might have been installed?

Thanks in advance for your help!

One more thing...
Having done a bit of research before, the prop must come from one of the larger aircraft from that time given the engine power rating of 260HP.

From what I understand, the AEG G.V is the most promising candidate.

I found the following photo on the web:


On this photo, there seem to be even the metal protections on the leading edges:

Props of this size made by this maker were fitted to Rumpler CV aircraft. Wolff props for the AEG G IV had a much smaller Steigung of 1500mm.

With kind regards,
