You need to be able to read those numbers. Don't remove anything to do that but see if you can decipher them with a magnifying glass and a light source that you can move around to illuminate it from different angles.

It could be anything based on its appearance alone.

The G number, G7245, suggests it is British from the 1930s and the hint of fabric at the tips does as well. Could you measure it from tip to tip for us. This would help.

With kind regards,

Bob

Smile Dimensions Propeller

These are the dimensions. Hope they will help

Length 98.5 inches

Hub width 9.25"

Center Hole (Hub diameter) 3.75"

Mounting Holes (distance apart) 2.75

Hope this helps. I would like to sell the propeller and would be more practical if I knew what the value is.

Smile Finding any other Numbers, inscriptions etc

I could find any other numbers or inscriptions. The propeller photographs I sent showing there inscriptions is the best on can do.

If some one could give me an approximate idea and likely associated with the type of aircraft it come from, would also help me.

Thank You
