I recently bought a test club prop from another maintenance organization at my airport. It was unfortunately outside for ***knows how long and is a bit weather beaten. It came from a company called fields aviation a services Rhodesia who I know used to rebuilt motors from the DC lines. It has sensenich brothers stickers with 8 boltholes in it see then photos here 6183

6186 sorry about the terrible positioning but it too heavy to lift alone!

Lo and behold after a wash some numbers appeared! Hopefully some form of identification

Those are hard to identify, and most of the time the best you can hope for is to match the hub pattern to a known engine.

The attached .pdf is a copy from an old Sensenich catalog, although I'm not sure it helps identify your propeller.

My advice - leave the rough finish alone. It's worth more than a "restored" one.
