I just purchased a solid aluminum propeller that appears to be a General Electric propeller but that is a guess. The propeller has stenciling painted on it with the following information, DWG. NO. 0168653, A.C. NO. 30-1801, p. 15.8-42", I.-. There is some additional information stamped on the bottom of the blade, ETCHED 11-30-29 and 13726 ACH. I'm trying to find someone that might be able to tell me what this means.

My plans are to restore the prop and put it on display. I have been trying to determine who made the prop, either Curtis Wright, Hamilton Standard, or some one else. What type of engine it would have been rated for etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
