It was painted camouflage (see photos). I sanded it down and refinished it with a few coats of Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane. Its not perfect but looks a lot better than it did.The limbs are straight and the tips are good. There were two small holes in the face of bow that I filled before refinishing. There are also two more small holes with bushings in the riser by the sight window. I left these as they were. The bow comes with a new string but there is no arrow rest. The serial # 10066343 & Herters CV 17 International Match Hunter. Items come from a smoke and pet free home. That being stated, I get a lot of my items second hand, I cant guarantee that they were never around pets or smoking, but I try to look for evidence of that.
Also, I do have a wood burning heater in my home (I live in Minnesota, after all) which, although fairly clean, might leave a little odor. In such cases I will need to be informed within 24 hours of receipt. Ive just had too many problems with that to make it worth the hassle. I try very hard to keep the charges as inexpensive as possible and the actual charges usually end up being more than was charged.The item "Vintage Herters CV 17 International Match Hunter RH 631/2 Recurve Bow 43#" is in sale since Sunday, September 6, 2020.
