The previous owner taped off the AMO info and had spray painted the entire bow with camo paint. It took me 3 days with very fine sandpaper and steel wool to remove it. I applied new tape over the AMO so that you can see that he inscription is original to the bow. The original medallion is of course included. The limbs are straight with no twists.This bow needs the following Some finish sanding, some small traces of old camo paint remain. After that you will need several coats of s finish of your choosing. I recommend Helmsman Spar urethane in a spray can. It will need the factory decals available from Alan Harford, I will put you in touch with him if you like. Glue the medallion back in. If you have never refinished a recurve bow especially an iconic vintage Fred Bear Grizzly than this would be a great starter project.
