Default I have propellers I can't identify

Can any of your experts help me identify their maker ? or the aircraft they were used for?

First one is recorded here on a public Flickr album I set up just now

https://flic.kr/s/aHsmCPTNRs

From blade tip to blade tip the propeller measures just short of 70 inches (1m 78 ).
The centre is 7 and a half inches wide (19 cm) and 4 inches thick (10 cm).

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

It's impossible to identify without the drawing number, usually stamped around the hub. If you find one go to this list to see what it matches.

It's clearly a modern design, manufactured well after WW1. It will have very little value to a collector, as the hub has been cut out to accommodate a clock or other device. Note that it's a left hand thread, typical of most of the WW2 trainers and similar aircraft.

Thank you very much for your insight...

I've not been able to find the drawing number on it and have a feeling it might be more stage prop than actual prop... I'm giving that one back to the fella who dropped it off...

Next one has a number, so I'll check your database - brilliant, thanks!
