It depends on its condition, but 1913 is NOT the date. Jacobs engines weren't developed until much, much later, so your prop is more likely from the 1940's or so, maybe even much more recent.

You can look at completed sales on eBay to get some idea of sales of similar props, or you could post a picture and we can offer a rough opinion of value.

Almost certainly either a serial number or a "drawing" number, which refers to a blueprint used to manufacture it.

Default Propeller and pictures with description.

Hi Dave,

I have 3 prop pictures below for you to look at. I made a mistake with the year. Seems like Dec. 1943 and the description shows Jacobs L6, Anson 2. Let me know what you think about it's approx. value.

Thanks,

Liliane

If I were selling it on eBay I would put an opening bid of $250 then hope for a bidding war. It's also possible that you wouldn't get any bids.

It looks like on of the many models for the AVRO Anson. Seems that they were over produced in some quantity and then sold off as surplus, so they are by no means "rare", and the condition looks a little rough from what I can see in the pics.
