Default I think I found a Burgess Propeller

My daughter bought an antique propeller for me at a garage sale and I need help to ID it. It is 8' long and the only marks I see is a stamp that says

516
8' 0"--4' 7"

and a stamp on top of that I can't quite make out.

Thanks!

It certainly looks similar to other Burgess props I've seen. I think the stamping about the serial number and diameter/pitch is "USN". I may have previously had decals on the blades.

Now that you mention it, I can now make out USN. I was thinking it came from a JN-4. My daughter goes to school with the daughter of the historian at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. Hopefully I can get his opinion
