Default Early Jacuzzi Toothpick

After a little research I have found that my propeller is a WW1 era propeller.
I know that is was manufatured by the Jacuzzi Brothers between maybe 1915-20 it was used during WWI and others its approx 9.5 feet long and is in excellent condition. Can any body give me some input on the value as I would like to sale it thanks.

That would depend on its condition. Is it original or has it been refinished?

What is stamped on the propeller?

Red face #'s are

Will try to post pictures when I have a second. Numbers on one side are 410 HP, 135 MH with a jacuzzi stamp and a four leaf clover shape with from L to R top to bottom in each leaf u,s, (bottom) 28,a with a b in the center of the clover. On the same side of the propeller but on other side of center markings read D.8.9 and P.7.6 with N 163 below. on the side which looks maybe like a serial # SC 60118. some of these digits are hard to read I could be wrong on some but the appropriate amout of digits should be correct. Jacuzzi is stamped a total of three times on same side.

It sounds like it might be for a Liberty engine (based on the horsepower). The "D" and "P" numbers are just diameter and pitch. The SC. number is for "Signal Corps" and is a very high number, suggesting that this was probably well after WW1.

I'd be interested to see the photos.

Sure looks like a Liberty prop, and it's kind of an unusual design. The next step is to confirm that it's a Liberty sized hub. Go to this page, then follow the link to the hub measurements.

By the way, it should be 8 feet 9 inches in length, not 9 1/2 feet.

How lovely to see a Jacuzzi prop go back to the family that made it. I've only achieved this twice in the last fifteen years, to AVRO in Britain and Ebora in the Netherlands.

With regards to everyone,
