Hi there,

Bob Gardner has kindly helped to find more information on this Reschke propeller. (Thanks again for this)

"The propeller dates from the first half of 1917. It was made ​​by the company of Franz Reschke GmbH in Berlin and was probably used on the Albatros C XII For Which Reschke was a known maker.

Serial number 21093
260 PS Mercedes. This Describes the Mercedes D IV engine.
D312 312cm diameter, the diameter. I did note your prop is 14mm shorter than the quoted 312cm, Which is well within the variation allowed by Idflieg
SE180 pitch ST180 180cm, the pitch of the prop

It is unusual at this stage of the war to find a six bolt-hole stroke. Almost all had eight bolt hole hubs. But the Mercedes D IV engine did use a six bolt-hole stroke. " (Bob Gardner)

Now I need more information if this is a rare propeller or what value it has.

Can someone help me?

Thank you
