    Turilli, any numbers or markings that you may find on this will help the guys on here to identify it. Please be patient, it's Christmas and everyone is with family and enjoying the holidays. :thumbright: :cool: That is a very cool find and they will be very interested in it.

    Don't know much about props, but the shape looks like the ones used on the Ju-52

    If we can get Junkers88A1 on here we could make quick work of it possibly. He is having trouble logging on though.

    The prop was not moving when it struck the ground (or water). I believe it may be British, I'll do some research when I get a chance.

    JU-52/BMW-132-A 9-200 20.11.0011 is what I'm showing as a model number. I can't match it to a drawing or photo

    Don't mean to clash, but I think it's from a Messerschmitt Bf 109G myself.

    First thought lookswise was 'it's from a Bf 109G, possibly G-10'. The 2087 no. was familiar too, so followed a hunch to see if 2087 could be an abbreviation of VDM 9-12087 -yep, bears out: Aluminium propeller, used on Me 109s.
    Further checks on info show this prop was fitted to the Bf 109G-1,-2, -6 and early G-14 versions.

    I think you nailed it. Could not confirm anything on the number at the bottom of the shank

    Certainly has the look of a later Bf109 blade, and I wonder, if that is a bullet hole, is it maybe from one of it's own guns?
