Bought this at a yard sale 15 years ago -- guy said he demolished a hangar in Baltimore and found it.

Paragon All Wood with flat ends - so metal tips missing. 7" tall and really heavy. One big mounting hole.[

Nice patina. Be sure not to "restore" it.

It's an unusual length - a little shorter than most early Paragons. I may be able to find that drawing number in my books at home, but in the meantime if you could post a picture of the prop from end to end it would help.

It never completed production and was probably sold off as a souvenir as unairworthy. The center bore and bolt holes were never drilled in it to make it mountable on an engine.

Thank you so much for the help - really appreciate it!

Here are a couple other pics - grateful for any info and maybe what you think value would be.

Have a wonderful day. Nancy

You need to measure it to see if it is actually 7 feet long. It looks as if the tips have been cut down.

Yes I did measure it - it's 7 feet. THanks all!
