Default Octura Plastic Prop ID

DOES ANYONE HAVE THESE PROPS ON THIER CHART? I have a handfull of Octura plastic props that only carry a two digit number, which I am guessing is the diameter in millimeters. I have most every prop chart from Octura but yet I cannot find these listed.

These are the ones I have that I would like to know what pitch they are, and if they are lifting or non-lifting props. They are sharp on the end corners, not a blunt radius like on some. They also carry a brass insert inside the bore. The numbers are located on the face of the prop just near one blade tip. All are .187" bores also.

Octura doesn't make that color of prop. Also Octura doesn't have brass inserts. My those props came off factory boats, probably a 1.4 pitch! #'s are diameter!

Hobby Lobby sells similar "no name" props with the diameter molded into the blade like these. But they are black and do not have the brass insert. Actually, that insert may have been hand made by a former owner of these props.

The flash around the inserts indicate they have been molded in. I'll take a look at what Hobby Lobby has to offer also, but it doesn't sound like thiers so far like you mentioned...
