Paragon Curtiss H-16 US NAVY World War 1 Flying Boat Wooden Airplane Propeller

Paragon H-16 Airplane Propeller
Made by the most famous propeller manufacturer of World War 1
(The American Propeller Company of Baltimore, Maryland)

This original airplane propeller was used on the Curtiss H-16 US NAVY Flying Boat Airplane during World War 1.

The Model H-16, introduced in 1917, represented the final step in the evolution of the Model H design. With longer-span wings, and a reinforced hull similar to the Felixstowe flying boats, the H-16s were powered by Liberty engines in U.S. Navy service and by Eagle IVs for the Royal Navy. These aircraft remained in service through the end of World War I. Some were offered for sale as surplus military equipment at $11,053 apiece (one third of the original purchase price. Others remained in U.S. Navy service for some years after the war, most receiving engine upgrades to more powerful Liberty variants.

This propeller dates back to the early 1900's (most likely in the 1917-1918 range)
