Look for evidence of a halo around the decals, done as a way to preserve them. Also smooth "fill" in what otherwise should be cracks, polished appearance of metal surfaces, tarnished spots under a smooth layer of varnish, etc. can all be a tip-off, but sometimes it's just a subjective determination. An antique appraiser would likely be able to help if you are uncertain.

If you go to woodenpropeller.com and look under modern wooden propellers, go first to Sensenich propellers and look up the military contract numbers at the top of that page. You'll find the drawing number for your prop in that list, look for the corresponding civilian number under the Sensenich listing and you'll see the aircraft that used your prop, and Fahlin was just using the same data for their version of it.
