Default VE-7 Navy Fighter Propeller

Hello, I have a VE-7 Navy Fighter Propeller from my father's estate. I would like to find it a very good home. It has historical significant and should be preserved for future generation whom will never know this era of early flight, and wooden propellers. If anyone is sincerely interested in this propeller please contact me through this website. Pictures are included. Included is this response from Kevin Ryan of Hartzell Propellers.

Dear Sir:
This appears to be a propeller for a Naval Aircraft Factory VE-7, originally designed by the Lewis & Vought Corp.
It was the U.S. Navyís first fighter aircraft.
Itís probably pretty old, but I donít have any way of dating it, as we did not keep any of those records. The VE-7 was made for about 10 years, 1918-1928. The blade was known as the ďBluebird.Ē
I donít recognize any of the numbers you gave, but the prop we made for the VE-7 was 102 inches long, so Iíd say youíve got a VE-7 prop. Itís a pretty cool piece.
If you have any additional questions, or if I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
