Postscript,

Don't worry too much about the damage to the hub. It is a common affliction where props had clocks fitted to them in the 1920s and is typical of the age. It is part of the history of the many of these props. If you wish, you could employ a cabinet maker to cut a smooth finish to the damage and to then insert a wooden plug, complete with drilled bolt holes. But it is a good looking prop from a famous WW1 aircraft, in typical condition of the age. Enjoy!

With kind regards,

Bob
