I would need to try and chip away the paint on the hub, there is some old grease and several layers of the paint. Would that matter too much? Any ideas of how to go about it? There is what appears to be a 1 and then blank under the paint and a 3. Maybe four digits by the spacing? That's on the well painted hub. It might be a T and then some spacing with a 3.

To help kind of date these, the family story that I'm still trying to find written but we do have old pictures of it, was an old twin bomber was on its way to the boneyard and my uncle was flying it, stopped at the farm and got the bomber stuck in the mud on the landing patch. From my memory it was an old twin Jenny going to the bone yard. These and several other heavy items were removed and stored at the farm so the airplane was able to get off the ground when departing. From the family hand down pictures and stories it sounds like it happened in the 30's. I'll do some more digging to see if I can get pics and post them too.
