Is it possible that it says DESIGN 419? If so, it was made for a Great Lakes 2T-1 biplane.

Default You are probably right

Thanks. Any idea on if it's value? I posted a few months ago some background.... this prop was found in my mother's house after Katrina in Bay St. Louis MS. Don't know if it came from the gulf or someone's house.

It's kinda' hard to set a value on it, partly because it depends so much on it's condition, has it ever been modified to hold a clock or barometer, etc. Can you post a picture of it, both overall and as close up as possible?

Here is a link to some pics of the prop. It doesn't look like it has been modified. I am trying to sell it but have no idea of the value. Any help is appreciated.

I would estimate $500 to $800 range.

That's probably close, but one of the unknowns is the hub. If that's an authentic hub (i.e. certified), it may be worth as much as the propeller.

Thanks for the help! Is there anyway to know if the hub is authentic?

You are of course correct. I failed to take the hub into consideration.
