If you're measuring the diameter of the metal hub it won't reflect the charted measurement of the center hole in the wood. My guess is that's the correct diameter for an OX5 engine and that the prop was used on something powered by that engine, possibly a Jenny.

Personally, I'd leave the hub where it is and not try to improve the finish except perhaps by waxing it. You can only decrease its value by making attempts to improve its appearance.
