Default ID and Value: US Propellers Inc - 72CA57

I would very much appreciate any info about the year this propeller was manufactured and the plane it was used on. Also what would be a fair asking price for this? Pictures are attached.

US Propellers Inc.
L = 72"
6 bolt holes
  • On one side, "US PROPELLERS INC" is stamped on one blade, and "DES 72CA57" (that "C" might be a "G") and "SER 16272" is stamped on the other blade.
  • On the flip side of the propeller "16272" is stamped near the large middle opening and "57" is stamped on the opposite side of the same opening. It's hard to see in the pix but a "1" is stamped on one blade and "2" on the other blade.
The propeller came from my deceased grandfather who I know owned two airplanes, one was a post WWI biplane and the other I believe was a Piper Cub circa 1930s-40s. I'm not sure if this propeller is from one of those planes or just a collectible he picked up along the way.

Thank you in advance for your help!
