EXTREMELY RARE! This is a historic and breathtaking “BARN FIND” from rural England. The beautiful mahogany-laminated propeller display has direct connection to the 121 Eagle Squadron.
Just as historic, this was the propeller of the first prototype Spitfire K5054. All woodworking and patina matches the era. Included with this historic item is a framing featuring three photos.
Two photos show the prototype Spitfire (K5054) illustrating the propeller match. The third photo is a very RARE combined signing of three American 121 Eagle Squadron Aces.
ACE signatures include:
Flight Leader/ Lieutenant Barry Mahon (five confirmed kills, two probable and three damaged),
General C.W. McCophin (twelve confirmed kills, 5 probable and 12 damaged) and
William Dunn (First American ACE of WW2, 8.5 kills plus 4 unconfirmed, 3 probable, 4 damaged and 12 ground destroyed) - three American 121 ACE signatures on one photo is an amazing find in itself!
Truly HISTORIC, this item offers a chance to own a piece of American aviation history in a stunning presentation.
