Those are hard to identify, and most of the time the best you can hope for is to match the hub pattern to a known engine.

The attached .pdf is a copy from an old Sensenich catalog, although I'm not sure it helps identify your propeller.

My advice - leave the rough finish alone. It's worth more than a "restored" one.
