Hi !

No, I don't think so even if there was no difference in cutting the laminations for same characteristics left and right handed prop (just the way the laminations are stacked: with the same set of laminations you can build a RH prop or a LH prop).

I put a left handed prop near Dean's picture prop because it is the only one for which I have high quality pics showing the decal on a whole prop in original condition! And I didn't flip the pic because if I did that the shape of the decal would be mirrored and it could not be possible to compare with the faint one visible on Dean's pic.

The shape of the prop by itself is enough to be sure it is a Levasseur, but only the decal (or the markings!) could tell it is a Levasseur made by Levasseur, neither by a subcontractor nor a licensee as the one made by Selmersheim on the joined pics.
