There were thousands of this design made, many of them never installed for reasons that aren't clear to me, although this is shorter than most of them, which were commonly 8 feet and either three or four inches in diameter. They were replaced by "toothpick" style props, which used less lumber to construct and were therefore less expensive.

I'm guessing it's this one on eBay?
Correct, I purchased it a few days ago. Love the history! Thanks for information.
