I won't, I understand the value of antiques and war memorabilia. And yes the ripples in the copper are caused by the prop being used, I was a aircraft mechanic in the Coast Guard and now am a mechanic on air boats. The deformities in on the following edge are caused from the use and force of the prop in the air. The friction (wind burn is also caused by flying) and if I am wrong and you are correct this prop has been mounted on a airplane it's entire life because there is no change on the prop where it was mounted to the motor or on the front where the hub was on it. But I have been wrong in the past! I am a dumby when it comes to wooden props, just stumbled across it in a second hand shop and made a wild offer on it and winded up leaving with it.
