F4u Corsair propeller blades

Post by Jeffro Bodine » Mon Mar 09, 2020 8:40 pm

A friend of mine has a set of 3. F4u Corsair prop blades They have original paint and Hamilton decals. The drawing number is correct for the Corsair. He may sell them What should a person offer him. Any help appreciated. Jeff

This is more complicated than you may think.
First question, Are they serviceable ??
If they are ready to put on a Corsair, the price goes up considerably.
If they are out of time take offs, or don't have any paper work, the price goes down considerably.
Honestly, I don't know how the military keeps track of time in service.
Civilian, the blades would have yellow tags and a log book entry. Unserviceable would or should be red tagged.
May come down to Pawn Star stuff. The art of bickering. And what do you plan to do with them if you buy them ???
Seller is gonna be high. Buyer goes low. Maybe you can find a $$$ amount in the middle both are happy with.
Never make the first offer an amount you would be willing to pay. :wink:

Jeff,
You might be able to contact the flight museum and get a good starting point.(the one in your area or the Boeing museum)

Are you sure they are f4u corsair and not fg1? The Goodyear fg1 used 3 blades. But he may have 3 of the 4 blades from an f4u

Jeff, I would like to get one as well. If you purchase them, maybe you might be interested in keeping one and selling the other 2?
