MERCE
D 270

I'ts also stamped with an oval logo on the blade that says:

Thank You for the infomation !

Any idea on the value?
It's a crash relic with both tips boken off,
so only 1,4m remains.

With kind regards,
Anders

'Morning Anders,

In terms of aviation history, but not money, it is a valuable item dating from about 4-5 years after the first flight in Germany and from the first year of the 1914-18 Great War. The evident crash damage makes it much more desirable than a typical hub remnant where only the stubs of the blades and the hub remain.

It is such a rare item that it has no specific value. It is currently worth what you paid for it. If you sell it in twenty years time it will be worth what someone is willing to pay for it. This is a characteristic of all auction sales.

Treat it with care; don't mount it where direct sunlight will regularly fall on it; nor place it where heat from a fire or a radiator will dry the wood. Polish it occasionally with pure bees wax polish.

With kind regards,

Bob
