It's not PERFECTLY mint cosmetically. Here's an excellent condition Letalis Telum Recurve Bow.
It's 57# and at 64 AMO. There are no limb twists, cracks, holes, refinish or repairs. There are a few small inclusions cosmetically; a couple tiny nicks. It's got tip wedges like Howard Hill longbows and the later great Stotler recurves. I've had this for a while.
It's a great shooting bow but my shoulder can't handle it now. I've owned about a thousand bows and this is in the top two I've ever shot. I've shot Black Widows, Herter's, Howatt, Groves, and even early Timber Ghost (I'd love to try the newer one), ETAL; just to name a few. Look up Jean Louthan for his background as a bonafide genius.
My top three are Jack Howard, Jean Lauthan (MADE THIS ONE) and Bob Lee, as the best bowyers ever; This is for recurve bows. I would rate this #2 behind the Jack Howard. My hunting bow now is a pre AMF Wing Thunderbird that I can still use, it was made in the 1960s (46#s and sadly it's getting harder to shoot that).
One, two and three; Jack Howard, Letalis Telum and Early Wing Thunderbird, in my opinion. If you read Jack Howard's book; you'll see that he's scientifically determined that 57#s is the most efficient hunting weight. And that 64 - 66 is the best shooting length for a traditional bow.
This is a 40+ year old bow: you break it? Who guarantees anything 40 years old?
If you are a knowledgeable traditional bow shooter, this could last you forever. No string or arrow rest is provided. I DON'T recommend fast flight strings and I DO recommend a fur arrow rest. Always use a stringer to string and unstring any recurve or longbow.
