Rik,

I don't have any record of that number. Most Spitfire props were made by Rotol. Can you find nos beginning RA or R on the metal shaft.

With kind regards,

Bob

Default spitfire propeller

Hello Bob
Thanks for the reply. There is another nr that looks like RA 5612. And then also 14346 I hope this helps.
Best regards
Rik

Rik,

You haven't found the crucial part no for the prop blade, which would identify the Mark of Spitfire, but the no RA5612 is for an adaptor that was used on Mk1 to Mk 9 Spitfires.

With kind regards,

Bob
