OK I knew this was going to happen at some point.I was kind of thinking if I kept digging I'd find it and booyaa found it this morning.This is a great one and I will add a little info on this one at some point but anywho it's B-2489 so that would had to have been built in 1972 according to Frank's notes.Well that one according to bowdoc's notes was 72.The riser is your normal looking black and tan and very well may have been one of the last flush mounted brass coin black and tan risers built.Or will 2499 surface in our quest ? stay tuned.bd

Bowdoc- That last one you just gave B-2072 I already put on the list.It's one I used to own and sold it to a fellow.Shortly after he sold it on e-***.I wondered what ever happened to it.Funny how some of hese make the rounds.Maybe i'll get it back one day.

I think mine is B-1225 I bought it sometime in 1969. I killed a muley buck with it the fall of that year. The Bowdoc has it for refinishing at this time.

Thanks guys...list should be up to date as of 7/24, 22:00, but if I ever say that and you don't see your bow there, give me a poke.

Grant, can you give me a few details on 1630? RH or LH, etc...

Bill, same with 1225, any more info for posterity? You should go to Owosso, Michigan with that bow. There is a steam engine there with the same number--was used in Polar Express movie.

Bowdoc, anybody ever call you a pain in the butt? Next thing you'll want me to pick up your laundry.

I'll only add a bowdoc note if you show me how to restore a '59 Kodiak...oh, you already did that...well, I'll only add a bowdoc note if you show me how to fix the sight holes in a Bear Takedown...oh, you already did that too...well, I'll only add a bowdoc note if you share your massive list of Bear risers in your ledger notes...oh, you are already doing that.

Ok, you win, I guess I'll add a Bowdoc note to your ledger bows. [Not Worthy]

Thanks again guys,

Bernie
