I wanted to share this. I havent actively collected for years but every now and then, bows come to you. If I get more than one a year, its a lot. A flea market friend who knows I collect found this for me. It was in such nice shape I had to get it, they wanted $90, I gave them $75.

The bow is in beautiful condition though I am suspect it may have been refinished. I see evidence of both it has and hasnt. Overall, I'm leaning towards it hasnt. Decals are perfect, it does show some shooting but very little. There appears to be a hole repair on the belly at the shelf but maybe a factory fix? Varnish/lamination suspect at grip but again, it just may be the way they came. Either way, I am very pleased with it, what do you think?

I knew about the Perfection 72" and found pictures of others but none the same as this one. Maybe its just me but the deflex geometry seems greater than other I have seen. I am guessing the year is 1964 +/- Any further input is appreciated.

Thanks for looking, Hope you all enjoyed it!

Tim

Some extra research may have decoded the serial #. If I read it correctly, Its 72", made in the 02 month in (19)64, 04th bow produced. If so, my guesstimate of 1964 was pretty good! [Smile]

Yeah that crazy photobucket wants to charge you, and have removed every picture you've ever posted.
