I'm not sure what is going on with the hub there, but if you can remove the plate to see what is behind it that would help. Also, if you can find any stamped information on it, that might help as well.

Overall I wouldn't spend a lot of money on it without knowing more about its condition (including the hub situation).

There's a possibility that the manufacturer was Hamilton Aero, which would date it in the 1920s. See this propeller for a similar general blade outline. Look closely for stampings in the metal sheathing, which was sometimes used on Hamilton props. The decal looks "similar" to a Hamilton decal, although the orientation is different, but a close up of the decal might help narrow down the manufacturer.
