Nice looking MSW. I entered the data on the list on first page of this thread.

Wade I do have a 59 56" bow that the purple heart looks like purple heart up close but lay it down and it looks like the rest of the bow. I have given up trying to post pictures but could send them to you if you like. From what I can tell the numbers say AA625 56" 32# @ 26" B. It is missing the coin and leather grip.

I am curious as to the opinions of folks who know so much more than I as to whether the bow that looks a lot like a 1959 64" MSW , no coin, that is currently being offered at the place we do not mention is what it looks like. The photos are crappy, no depictions of overlays, limbs or tips and the serial number doesn't look anything like the sequence of those that are authenticated and reported on page 1 of this thread.

I've adopted too many bows that needed a good home.

It looks real to me, but you are right, could use better pics.

The article by Matt Dickerson, "Bear Archery Kodiaks 1950-1966", states that some early '59s were built without coins. According to him, the 64" had two different sight window lengths, 6" for weights up to around 50# and 4" for heavier weights. Nothing I've seen in the pictures tells me this is not such a '59, but I don't even play a bow collector on TV, so that's JMHO.

$1125 for the two bows. Knock off $150 for the one leaves $975 for the 1959. I quit at $650 . Someday I will buy a msw 1959.

Not that long ago, a MSW 59 Kodiak in that condition was a real bargain at $1000.00

This is new to me, but I just bought my first Kodiak today at a sale. Not sure of the age. The serial is DK545 64" and 61# It has a duel shelf. Left and right handed. It has the Maple riser.

Chuck, sounds like a Kodiak II, mid-50's. Post some photos so we can ooh and ahh.
