DH60 Propeller Blade and Hub

The DH60 is the code for the De Havilland. The DH60 is otherwise known as the Gipsy Moth. The hub is stamped 80 hp and Cirrus and dated March 1926. The Cirrus engine was soon replaced after early production indicating this propeller is from an early example of the aircraft. One blade has been removed near the hub while the other, which is covered in the original green painted canvas, carries a signature which looks to be J. Bell, who we speculate could have been the pilot reponsible for the loss of the missing blade. A very decorative example from the early days of aviation, measures 45" (114cm)
