Welcome to the forum, d5myth.

All WW1 aircraft props are exceedingly rare and four-bladed ones are more so.

Your data describes a pusher prop for the FE2B designed by the Royal Aircraft Factory and it translates as;

G871 N94 prop no. 94 in a batch of 100, called batch no 871. Prop no 53 from this batch is in the IWM. It might have been made by Darracq. The batch no. dates from circa July 1918.
T28005 The prop drawing number of the Royal Aircraft Factory
D 2668 The diameter in mm. The drg described a prop with a diameter of 2670mm but allowance was made for variations in the available timber
P2020 Pitch in mm
160hp Beardmore The 160 hp Beardmore engine that powered the FE2B

Thank you so much for that info... Greatly appreciated!

Do you have an estimate as to what this would fetch private or at auction?

Thanks again

If you were to sell it at auction it is likley to make around 3000 GBP.

If you wish to insure it against loss, its replacemant value is 6000 GBP.

With kind regards,

Bob
