Curtiss JN4  (Toothpick style)
c. 1917

Comments:  This "toothpick" style propeller was less expensive to manufacture than the scimitar shaped propellers, and with aircraft like the Jenny being used as trainers and for other rugged purposes, propellers were commonly damaged.  This particular prop was made out of cherry, and the absence of bolt holes in the hub implies that it never made it past the final inspection process.  It was made for the OX5 engine.  There is a crack visible at one tip, which might also explain its lack of airworthiness during manufacture.  Its authenticity as a Jenny prop and the cherry wood make it an excellent display propeller.

Wood:  Cherry
Length:  8'4"
