It would certainly help to include the stamped material and some photos, and you're much more likely to get a reasonable price with good documentation of its condition.

Thank you for your help. But, I am not sure how to post images! I do not have a website. I can send you a photo through my personal email.

I truly appreciate your help, this is an incredible historical piece and I want it to go to someone who will love and appreciate it's significance.

Thanks again,
Patricia

So there is documentation that this prop was designed for the JN4H with either a 150 hp or a 180 hp Hispano-Suiza engine. See the attached document from Cook Field in 1919 (obtained from the NASM).
