81" De Havilland DH.60GM Metal Moth Scalloped Scimitar Wooden Airplane Propeller

Exceptionally rare 1930's Scimitar Scalloped Wooden Airplane Propeller by Chicago Propellers of Forrest Park, IL, made by WmH Gardner & Sons. This unique propeller is a rare find due to its original use on the iconic De Havilland DH60GM Metal Moth.

To illustrate its uniqueness, consider this - only 751 of these aircraft were ever built, and of those, a mere 161 were manufactured by the Moth Corporation in the United States. One of the famous Metal Moths, N-Number NC916M, even starred in the 1957 movie "The Tarnished Angels". The propeller used in this movie, though similar in design to our Chicago Propeller, was a more common Sensenich.

Our rare Chicago Propeller has the following dimensions:

Length: 81 inches
Pitch: 5'3"
Depth: 3-3/4 inches
Hub width: 10-1/2 inches
Bolt holes: 3/8 inches
Bolt hole spacing: 4-3/4 inches (from hole to hole)
Hub center hole: 2-3/8 inches wide

The propeller is marked with the drawing number 456 and has one of the lowest serial numbers - 17. It features original decals and a beautiful patina that highlights its age and history.

This is an excellent opportunity to own a piece of aviation history. If you're a fan of antique aircraft or a collector of unique artifacts, you don't want to miss this rare find!
