Got a original wooden propeller of plane.

Having some trouble identifying the thing on the internet.

It has a serial number and a date when it was crafted...

Can anyone guess what it is? and what it's worth?

What is it? It is a propeller you already answered that buddy

What is it it worth? its not really worth much.

Father in law works on these and quite often he brings home old ones and turns them into things.
aluminium ones become shoe racks, wood ones become Crosses or Clock mounts.

Cousin turns them into at pieces as well.

to them its scrap wood lying around.

the reason is if that is removed from a plane its not fit for flights because of something we cannot see. so yeah not really worth much, sorry dude.

Probably worth a good few hundred to the right buyer that wants to hang it on the wall as decoration.

I don't know what the size of that propeller is, but I've recently heard of someone the paid 30k at an antique shop, for a propeller that is about 3m long to hang on a wall as a decoration. Though I suspect that such people are few and far between, so what it's worth will probably be dependant on how much time you spend looking for the right person to buy it.
