Hi,

It is absolutly certain the prop was sanded (at this time most Levasseur props were black lacquered and some remains are in the markings) and the blades reshaped, perhaps to look like a Chauvière... Chauvière and Levasseur props have one edge of their blades straight, but it is the trailing edge for Chauvière and the leading edge for Levasseur. And there is also the hub which had been modified, probably to insert a clock or a barometer... All in all, no value remains!

On the pic below, you can see how it was...

Regards,
PM
