    Might be pre-war Hamilton Standard origin used on civil aircraft as well as Stearman trainers..

    Can you give me some education on why you believe it was a training aircraft?

    Try Barnstormers.com. That's where I saw props that resembled yours. As to value, that I don't know.

    Don't think it's a Hamilton Std prop and I think the tips have been broken off, rather than squared off. It looks like a beat up McCauley 41D5926 prop, which was used on Boeing Stearman training aircraft. It's hard to tell from the pics.

    You may be right. McCauley was my second choice as Hamilton Standard also made that type. Either way I couldn't help but notice that the tip was a little chewed up. I can remember seeing props of that design on wind machines around orange orchards some years ago.

    The ends don't look broken off on side was in the dirt and rusted. I'll try and take better pictures this weekend off the tips and all the numbers on it. Doesnt ARO stand for army research office? Also any idea on value with out knowing where it came from

    Just to remind.... we don't allow to trade here on th forum. As long as you try to find out more about the prop it's fine. So please follow the rule.
