    Hello,
    Please could anyone know what the aircraft is the propeller? And what could be the price?

    Thank you Peter

    two bladed WWI wooden props retail sell for about $1000. Yours would then be half that. Although, I think you may have a WWII prop based on the hub. A number of different WWII aircraft used wood props due to metal shortages. Are there any numbers , inspection stamps or any other marks on the prop?

    Hi Peter!

    Where did you find that beauty? I think it may be an early Moravan Zlin propeller, possibly from a Zlin Z-XII or Z-212, produced in your own country at the town of Zlin.
    There's a 1950's example from the same company in the flat I'm renting (check out my thread 'New room-mate, what's she from?')

    At the bottom is: 1801 and Z

    The Z will be for Zlin if I know right, the 1801 should identify the type, if not the individual aircraft. Try writing the company in case they have a list. (want to do the same re the landlord's prop)

    Yep, you could well be right there mate! Letov and Avia produced them during the war, and Avia postwar (as the Avia C-2).

    Another possibility may be the Siebel Si 204 (postwar designation: Aero C-3A/B) which had the same engines and props (aswell as the Fw 189, though I don't think these were produced in Czechoslovakia)

    Noting that the blade is wooden and code and 'Z' markings, I'm wondering if Moravan-Zlin produced the blades for Letov, Aero or Avia? Original German items would have been metal I think (though they have may have used wooden blades aswell to conserve metal)
