Smile 13 ft Prop ID

I just picked up a really large wooden propeller and I haven't been able to find much about it yet. I was hoping someone in this forum could help out. Here are some details.
- 13 ft long (all wood)
- Has a serial number of some kind "29608" but no other markings.

Iím not an expert by any means but I am learning from of the very knowledgeable people on the site. It looks like it has a slight pitch and itís very large. My guess is an airship or blimp propeller. Iím pretty sure I will be corrected by someone much more knowledgeable.

Probably the best step at this time is to check the exact hub dimensions and then click the link to see if they match a specific aircraft engine, possibly a Liberty engine.

Many dirigible props were 16 feet or more, but that's still a possibility. It's possible that it simply can't be identified, however.
