Boeing Model 74 / XF3B-1

The XF3B-1 (Model 74) was built by Boeing as a private venture and externally resembled closely the F2B-1, but had provision for a single central float with outboard stabilising floats. Powered by a 425hp Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Wasp, it was flown for the first time on 2 March 1927 as a float seaplane. Showing no significant advance over the F2B-1, the XF3B-1 was returned to Boeing by the US Navy and completely rebuilt (as the Model 77),

I have a name plate from a Boeing biplane powered by a P & W Wasp engine. It is written on the bottom that it crashed in Reo De Janerio in 1927 and was named the COMET and flown by Roger (appears to be Moch W. Go) I was hoping to to get a little info before I sell it, probably e-bay. If you desire to see a photo I could send you one. Thanks Johnny

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
