Can you post any pictures of limb stickers or cards you might have gotten with it?

Thank you, the only markings on the bow are the numbers on each limb shown in the last picture. This came from the estate of a man who purchased quite a few prototype sporting goods, lures, turkey calls etc. etc. he was collector.

The bow doesn't look like it ever had a sticker, I don't see any signs of one being on it. Someone referred me here (to Martin), they felt that it may be a prototype Jaguar ??

Any ideas on that serial number?

I'm going to direct somebody to you who likely will be able to help you out next week. Or, at least maybe get an answer. I've asked a few people to look at the pictures. The riser is interesting, and the elliptical wheels were used on a variety of generations and years of bows.

I think this bow has been narrowed down to an early Bowman.

Edit: Confirmed - Stewart Bowman made - 30 years old.

Thanks for your help, if you woulod like to remove the thread please feel free to do so.
