Wincharger props were not painted. I believe the factory applied a varnish. Yours can never be used again so it's a wall hanger or used on a display wind generator. I lightly sand the wood and go over the copper with 0000 steel wool to clean the surface without removing the patina. I use a product called Gibbs for both the wood and copper. If I were selling it, maybe $100 because of the damage. Still a nice decorative prop and in the right antique store it might sell for more. Although unintentional in most cases, it's not uncommon for these to be misrepresented as aircraft props.
