Default Identify Hamilton Propeller

I am trying to correctly identify a Hamilton propeller for my boss. The markings are D.E.S.H -561 X R.H. NO 11703. We are going to manufacture a spinner for it and I was hoping to get a drawing or at least a good picture of the original. Any help would be appreciated. The bolt circle is 5.250 and the bolt holes are .375. the center hole is 2.700 and the diameter of the recessed area is 6.500. Attached are some pictures.

To my knowledge there is no listing of Hamilton propeller applications, and I've looked at various museums, etc. to find one.

As you may know, Hamilton merged with Standard Steel in 1929, so your prop is at least that old. I suspect that even if you could find what it was designed for, you'd still have to customize the spinner.
