Default Gb lewis wooden prop

I have a 57" wooden propeller made by GB Lewis with the numbers " DES L16-57 HP65 RPM 2560 SN 890" marked on it.

Can anyone tell me about this propeller, as to where and when it might have been used, and approximate value?

It doesn't show up specifically on the GB Lewis list and it sounds as if the pitch is actually 57 inches, which is very coarse for a prop of that length. I wonder if it might have been an experimental or test model of some kind.

Value depends on condition, among other things. Hard to say without seeing it.
