Displayed together but priced individually: two cast aluminium propeller blades from a Lockheed C-130B Hercules Circa 1960. They have been stripped of their coatings and polished to a mirror finish. Then mounted on a solid milled aluminium base.

The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft designed and built originally by Lockheed, now Lockheed Martin. Capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, the C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medical evacuation, and cargo transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), for airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refuelling, maritime patrol and aerial firefighting. It is the main tactical air lifter for many military forces worldwide. Deliveries of the initial production model, the C-130A began in December 1956 and to date over 40 models and variants of the Hercules serve with more than 60 nations.

The C-130B model was introduced in 1959 to complement the A-models that had previously been delivered, and incorporated new features. Four-bladed Hamilton Standard propellers replaced the Aero Product three-bladed propellers that distinguished the earlier A-models.
