They seem to think they are Mirage Plus props. Any thoughts on what a good pair of lab finished 24" pitch 3 blades might be worth?
They would make a nice set of paper weights for someone.

I have merc outboards - 250xs. The props came with the boat.

That kinda makes sense, since you have O/Bs on your boat, BUT Merc Lightning Props are usually used on Fast light O/B tunnels, and Pad V-bottom boats.... I believe these are Drag boat props.
