I have this one at hand. I'll photograph the other if required. Six tries , it proved hard to eliminate glare.

Hi,

Could you post a close up of the stamps and digits of the flat side of the hub and one of of the more legible round stamp at the blade foot?

Hi,
Thank you for the pics. The round stamps at blade feet read:
- outside circle: HELICE GREMONT RUE ST CHARLES
- inside: LYON
It is the addresse of the factory after Gremont went from Paris to Lyon in 1918.
The prop has been made there but there is not enough data about Grémont props to give a precise date of making.
Attached pic: same stamp on a serial S n°9864 which has kept its original brown-red varnish.
Regards,
