Default Please help!


Somebody sent me pics of a prop found in Algeria. From the size and shape, I do think it is post WW2, probably from the 50' for a small aircraft fitted with a 90 to 120 HP engine.
I can't see any marking but the owner told me he can read on a blade root:
DES 401
SER 9541
ATO 710
So, I think it is not French but probably English or American.

I have found this post on the forum with "same kind" of markings and a compatible shape: http://woodenpropeller.com/forumvB/s...ead.php?t=1802 but the tips are cut so it is impossible to telle if the sheatings have the same shape.
By the way, what is the meaning of the letters ATO?

Diameter: 177 cm (69.7")
