Antique lemon wood long bow - $300 (Greer)

This is an antique lemon wood long bow made by Woodcraft Manufacturing. They are out of business and information on their products is limited. There are collectors on line, their information indicates this bow may be as much as 100 years old. The latest date of manufacture could be during the 1940s. It is in remarkable shape and is still strong and has good limb speed, I estimate the draw weight to be 40-45 pounds. It is backed by what appears to be linen. There is an arrow rest for a left handed shooter added, the bow is actually ambidextrous. I tried to string the bow with the string that was on it, it snapped so the bow has a new string. I have shot it, it shoots well and is fast. I would keep it, I am not a collector and I feel it will just sit around of little use.
