Default My Autographed Flottorp Prop

I am finally getting around to posting some pics of this propeller. I received it from my father before he passed in Sept. This prop was in our attic in Michigan since 1968, not sure when my dad got it, but he worked for Bohn Aluminum and brass, and I think that is part of the story. I believe the metal on the prop was from Bohn.

This prop has signatures on it, it looks like it was used in the 1927 air races, referencing "Spokane" etc. Also some reference to Santa Fe N.M.

I am trying to get a ticket to the Antiques Road Show in Chicago, seems appropriate since the prop was mfg'd there.....Will find out in April. Very interested in what the value of this prop would be with all of the important aviation people involved.
Enjoy!
