It was not flown : only static thrust measurements of various scimitar propellers on the Me109 G-6 BF+QB (source : Flugkapitän Richard Dahm in Jet&Prop 5/2001)

GTX,

in the book "Die Pfeilflügelentwicklung in Deutschland bis 1945" by Hans-Ulrich Meier (The Development of swept Wings in Germany until 1945) page 190 you will find diagrams of different swept propeller blades (Heine and DVL) with the Me 109 at transonic tip speeds. Conclusio: better efficiency than straight blades at high speeds and high noise levels.

... to be more precise - the swept blades showed acceptable propulsive efficiencies up to tip speeds of mach 1.2.
