I have a propeller that has been in my family for over 60 years and have been trying to identify what UAV it was meant for and what year it was manufactured. Its from U.S. Propeller Inc. and is 44in. in dia. It has the model # 22008 and the serial # AV946. My father started working for Giannini in Pasadena in the early 50s and I figured that's where he acquired it but have not been able to find more info on this propeller. I do know that I may never find exactly what application it is from but have been very intrigued by the research I have already done and would appreciate any help I can get.

You're right about being able to definitively narrow it down, but I've seen some "fairly" convincing arguments that it was used on the Shelduck target drone (http://www.wmof.com/kd2r5.htm). U.S. Propellers must have made a lot of those, as that model number shows up frequently.
