Thank you for your help

The SNCAN-1203 with a Regnier 4L0 engine has two Chauvière prop approved : serials 6044 and 6066. The 6044 has a 12 bolt holes hub which seems the same than yours... but I have never seen a 6066. Also approved the Merville serial 863, which also have a similar hub.
So, you may be right: your prop is probably for a SNECMA-Régnier 4LOO, but this engine has been fitted on many aircraft: See the bottom of this page

The 3 first pics are from a Chauvière 6044, the last one from a Merville 863 (made in March 1954) marked for Nord 1203 fitted with a 145 HP Regnier.
