    My dad has this prop blade on display in front of his house in AZ.

    No idea what it's from.

    Any help?

    Thanks for the info. The S-2 has much different looking tips, dad's has rounded, were there different versions of the same blade?

    Did you mean T-28?

    Most S-2 had square tips, this prop was authorized on that airframe (actually the C-2) according to the FAA TCDS when flown in civilian use. This data is attained from the manufacturer. There's a possbility that the blade tips might have to be modified before use on a C-1 airframe, but the TCDS doens't mention that. All this is based on the information on the blade face.

    It's possible the stenciling is fictitious, looks much newer than the rest of the blade.

    Thanks for the help Flyboy I knew you'd have some info for me.
