I have a wooden propeller made in Richmond Indiana by the Star Piano Company. This propeller came from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway while the track was closed in 1917-1918 during WW1. The facility was used by the 821st Aero Repair Squadron of the Us Signal Corps. Recovered from the facility after the War and stored in Speedway, Indiana. Passed through my family for many years.

Hello,

Thank you to Dave for reccomending that I post the propeller for sale on eBay. The propeller sold on 2/27/15 to a decendent of the owner of the Starr Piano Company. Following WW1 they recorded records Gennett Label. Many stars of the time recorded on this label. We are very pleased to find a buyer who appreciates the historical value of this propeller in Indiana.

Thank you,

Scott
