Hoping to revive this thread. Just picked up another one today. Serial number B-2249, RH, with a stabilizer bushing. Also has the plate in the site window and both bears. It also has the shelf ground low like Fred's bows and makes me wonder how many came out of the factory like that. Of course I'm assuming it was done then. There's also the letter B stamped into the wood at the end of the S/N. It's in a little rough shape but the back story is pretty cool.

I mentioned to a fellow coworker that I had an old Bear TD and he said he had one that he got when his grandpa passed some years ago. Turns out his fathers first job out of high school was at Bear Archery in 1972 or 73 and he helped build this bow and gave it to his Dad (coworkers grandpa).

Basically the latches have some rust on them but the overall finish isn't too bad. I would rather it not have the plate in the site window but it is factory original and the fact I know the story of the bow was just too much for me to pass it up.

Update on this bow. I’ve been working on getting the latches cleaned up and noticed that the shelf had been cut down and come to find out it was done at the factory when my coworkers Dad was making it for his father. Another part of the story for this bow.

B-2320 is RH Type 2, stab bushing, factory sight plate, one brown bear, and riser had a crack that was repaired professionally. Formally one of Norm's (Zepnut) bows.
