Default Sopwith Propeller Clerget 130

Hi,
I am interested in finding out missing marks from a propeller that my dad has in his garage. It is clear from what we know and the research that I made that it comes from a Sopwith F1, the marks on one side show Sopwith F1 then underneath 130 HP Clerget. However, the marks are difficult to read underneath. It looks like a D and G or maybe a 6 but at the end of that I can clearly see 650.
What puzzles me is the number 2926 by the holes on the hub. What does this number refer to?
Also I read that the length should be 2600 mm, mine is 2585 mm exactly. I will post photos as soon as I can so anyone interested in helping me out can check details easily.

The full details of the propeller are as follow:
Length 2585 mm
Diameter of the hub 205 mm
It has 8 bolt holes

The propeller is in very good condition. It is beautiful piece of history. It is a shame it is kept in the garage at the moment. If we could find this propeller a good home, we would consider selling it.

Thank you in advance for your help
