I am trying to identify this propeller
Serial # 4418014
DWG # 44K13555
This is all the info I got at the time but could go back to look at it again
if necessary. Thanks Cletus

The "44K" prefix indicates a 1944 date of a military contract, but I can't find a reference to the "13555" suffix, which would cross reference to a civilian model, similar to what we find on the Sensenich (http://www.woodenpropeller.com/Military%20numbers.html) and Hartzell (http://www.woodenpropeller.com/MWPHartzell.html) listings.

I've moved this to the "Modern" category, since it's clearly WW2 vintage.

You'd need to either find some reference to the contract (44K1355) number or find a cross reference to a design number. There were hundreds of different propeller designs manufactured during various periods of time, and without specific correlation to design numbers it's nothing more than a guess.

We do have some of those numbers collected over the years, but not all of them.

If there are other numbers stamped on it, please share them. Also, the length from tip to tip might eliminate some possibilities, but won't be specific. A picture might help, but many different designs look the same.
