Found this propeller in rafters of father in laws shop. A little rough but can anyone give me some info as to its value? Side of hub reads GB Lewis Co. Ser.12796. Des.L11BK 40. No.20. TC 788. Don't appear to have original decals. 72" long. Was originally a 6 hole but appears it has been redrilled with 6 more. Thanks.

See this page (http://woodenpropeller.com/Values.html) for starters. Whatever it might have been worth in original condition is lowered substantially by the re-drilling of the hub, and probably by the change in decals. On top of that it's a very basic and very common model used on a variety of aircraft (see this listing page (http://www.woodenpropeller.com/MWPGBLewis.html)) and is not in any way rare or unusual.

We wouldn't estimate the value here without seeing the entire propeller, and its defects.

Thanks for your reply. I am posting extra pics. Won't feel so bad about throwing this into garage sale now. Thanks
