    It's a Ham standard 23E50 series. The basic design was used on many aircraft, I'm trying to figure out what aircraft used the 7147 blade configuration.
    EDIT
    I'm showing the 7147 blade replaced the 6507, The 23E50 series with 6507 blades were used on the C-54

    Hard to say - the factory might be able to give a time line based on the blade and hub serial numbers

    it could have been on several ac. sometimes they are replaced when they meet the replacement/overhaul deadline. they may be removed and shipped back to the facility to be overhauled and put back into the inventory for the next available plane.

    You can find it on the hub propeller, at the top of N° 1 blade socket
