Best regards Paul.

It could range from a few dollars to several hundred dollars. It depends very, very heavily on its condition.

I think eBay is your best bet there as well. It should get a lot of views, and you can also list it on U.S. eBay. Shipment from England to the U.S. using IPSparcel.com will usually cut the door to door shipping cost almost in half, and you won't need a broker. I've shipped quite a few propellers internationally and have been pleased with the service and the price.
