WWI French Propeller for the Salmson 2-A2 Biplane
The propeller is laminated and varnished, with about 21" of the propeller tips painted a dark red. The Salmson "SFA" decals are still 95% intact. Attached to the edge of the hub is a thin brass shield blind-stamped "Blindage Sham" (shielding sham). The flat of the 8-hole hub is stamped "Serie 804 No 656", with numerous additional marks. This is a beautiful example in original condition, with minor discoloration and a few areas of bubbled paint from age and use. The Salmson 2-A2 was widely used as a reconnaissance and ground attack aircraft in the last year of the war by both French and American forces. Propeller has remnants of grease and exhaust residue, showing that it was actually used. None of these aircraft are still in existence, even in museums, so this propeller is extremely rare. Overall length approximately 9 feet, the hub thickness approximately 6" and the overall diameter of the hub approximately 8". Mounted on oak shield-shaped plaque with copy of original US Air Force photo of a Salmson in US service.Rare to find these original WWI propellers in this fine untouched condition. From the collection of Dr. Douglas Harman. Perfect decoration for the Man Cave! Price includes shipping within the Continental US.
