Lovely prop Andrew. Thanks for showing it to us. I do like props with a built up hub, which formed the streamlined base for the spinner.

With regards,

Bob

Thats incredible. I have the same prop serial # 65854. Mine has a "brand" of an anchor with US around it, do you have that as well and do you know what that means? If I had to guess I'd say that it has something to do with the fact that it was used on seaplanes.

Also, thought you might be interested to know that I have found these props on sale online for $600-$1600.

(I don't actually own the prop, I belong to the Commemorative Air Force, FL Wing and they own it)

Nice prop, it really is and in excellent condition too, a real plus.

The anchor 'brand' indicates it was used on US Navy seaplanes rather than civilian seaplanes.

But what plane would the Navy have flown that would use this prop?

This prop fit the Grumman G-44 Widgeon, designated J4F by the US Navy.
