The research is ongoing with this prop and specifically its history/connection to Charles Lindbergh's visit to Atlantic City in 1927.

I have updated previous posts in this thread with some new info but nothing earth shattering to report to date.

My wish is to find some pictures or news paper articles of Lindbergh visit with the prop on a wall or something that confirms its history.

I am also researching how/why the prop was located in recent times in the same area where Lindbergh was born. Maybe a museum, relative or someone took possession of it for a time then forgotten in the attic where it was found.

I found a few more pictures to post. Again, these planes may be R9's but its soooooo hard to tell because there are different versions of this Curtiss that have the same features.
