    I believe that these props were marked at the base so i would suggest that you view in person, serial nos/ will certainly id the item, i think its one part of a three part spinner, but it could be fighter or medium bomber, judging by the size i wouldnt think its from a heavy aircraft, but im sure others will chip in

    Well thats not very helpfull!!!!!! Just spoken to the seller again and it looks like the dodgy paint job has covered up any markings there were on this blade.

    Looks remarkably similar to the Curtiss Electric 'blown steel' blade commonly fitted to the B-26, minus it's 'rubber boot' fitted to the base.
