Some propellers can't be identified, even with manufacturer's stamps. Unfortunately, this is probably one of them. Even the hub configuration, which looks like it should be for an OX5 engine, looks as if the center bore is too narrow for that fairly common application.

It does appear to be "early" (WW1 or perhaps slightly afterward) and certainly appears to have been refinished at some point.
