I acquired about 40 years ago, a wooden propeller from Aerial Propeller Co, Greenville Texas. It has Model #A.T.P. 48.20.72. ser 893.B.. Can anyone tell me something about this propeller, what type of plane it was for, value, etc..

To my knowledge no one has published a list of propellers from that company, so it may be difficult to identify, and I certainly don't recognize the numbering sequence from any published lists.

It may be an ultralight, UAV, or some other application. Can you post a photo of it?

I'm nearly certain that it's an airboat/snowsleigh propeller. The broad blades, flat pitch, short diameter, squared ends and atypical numbers (for aircraft) are all consistent with that usage.

Wow...That's very interesting. Thanks so much for your information.
