Hello,
Could somebody help me identifying this propeller?
Lenght is 2,64m
Decals paragon and on the other side some (Russian?)markings.
Also stamped f.c.r.
On what type of airplane was it mainly used?
Grtz

It's half of a 4 bladed combination, the notch on one side of the hub locking into a similar notch on the other blade. Without more information, I'm guessing that it was for a Liberty engine and most likely used on one of the US Navy flying boats in the late teens and early twenties.

I have no idea of what they mean or why they would even be there. The "F.C.R." is stamped on a number of early U.S. propellers, but I'm not sure what that means either.
