Default US Propeller Inc ID

Years ago a neighbor gave me a US Propeller Inc Prop. Was in the rafters of his garage cover with dust and a birds nest. Cleaned up nicely.

Info near hub. (Hard to read and may not be totaly correct)
DES 5720
SER 3286
RPM 2300
HP 65
TC 752

General Specifications
76.25" long
2.25" hole in center of hub
6 ea 3/8" bolt holes in 4" diameter bolt circle in hub
3 3/8" thickness at hub
9 1/4" black paint on the tips
24" armored leading edge rivited

Decals are black circle with red star inside, goldd outer ring "US" imprinted on gold circle in center of star, Gold outer ring says "US PROPELLER INC LOS ANGELES CALIF.

He had several different small planes in the 40s through 70s. Walked with a limp from a plane crash. He crushed his foot in one while hunting wolves and crashed in a farm field.

Any ideas what it belonged on? How do I get picture from phone to this post?

Thanks, Keith

I'll try to look that number up in a few days when I'm home. Be patient.

I don't have that number listed. They do list these models under Type Certificate TC752: 5722, 5722F, 5724, 5724F and 5726, all for 65 HP engines. If the last digit in your model stamping is a "6", then that's probably the correct model number. The listing does not specify a make/model of aircraft, however.
