Not a bother at all: exactly the contrary! "Strange" props are the most interesting!

Just one more pic to show what I suppose was the pigskin "shielding" of your prop, here on a Chauvière 2463 for a Dorand.
This shielding (blindage in French) was made by SHAM and patented by them.
From prop number (73664), it was probably made between 1919 and 1921. BTW, nothing can be told from the prop number of yours because Mormesse production is not known, at least by me.

As you can see, SHAM shielded [right word?] prop had a small brass plate, nailed to the prop. I suspect many came loose...


EDIT: replaced "licensed" by "patented" and added the patent.
