Have a "new" old stock DH4 prop for sale. P/N: 4-P-680-R. Hub shows no signs of ever being mounted, no bolt/nut/washer marks and bolt holes appear unscratched.
"new" as new can be after sitting around unused 80 plus years. Been in my possion for about 16 - 17 years, always hung horizontal by hub and rotated occaisionally. Detailed pics available.

The DH-4 that Don mentioned has been fully restored and is now flying and I believe is the only flying DH-4 in the world. It has been to Oshkosh in 2007 and Bartlesville, OK and can be seen at the Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum at Creve Coeur Airport near St. Louis, MO
