I don't know. Bob Gardner may have an idea when he checks in. In the meantime, I've flipped to photo to make it easier to read . . .

The Daimler notation may refer to the 160 HP Mercedes D III engine.

Can you post a photo of the entire propeller?

The propeller is shortened with a barometer .... wish it was full length.

Default full picture please!

Well, as long as we have a picture of the stampings and a slight view of the barometer bezel from the side, and as sad as it is that someone shortned this prop, I feel it would be interesting to see just what it looks like with full span pictures of the result of the cut job that someone did to it. So some more pictures of the prop from different angles would be appreciated.

Sincerely,

It's Austrian.

The Austro-Daimler 160ps engine was ubiquitous in the Austro-Hungarian Air Force and powered almost all their aircraft, so I can't identify to which aircraft type your prop was fitted.

It was made by the Austrian branch of the French Integrale Prop Co which was taken over by the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the start of the war.

With kind regards,

Bob
