So it looks as if yours was not approved for use because of a manufacturing screw up, and is stamped for a Franklin engine. I think the serial number "AF43 10542", means that it was for a 1943 Air Force contract.
Dave, Do you know what difference in specifications makes these props incompatible with the Kinner 8031 hub? thanks, Jeff
