Very Early Vintage Bear Archery Kodiak Special recurve 49# 1955
One early Bear Archery Kodiak Special recurve bow. Probably early in first year 1955 based on decals and I-beam. RH, 49#, 64 less common for year one, Serial # X944. Not sure if the X means something. Laminated maple and brown wood riser with I-beam construction. Brown glass facing w/ stress lines. Pale olive green glass backing with stress and scratches. Tips intact with 5 lamination overlays in black and white. The finish is still glossy and pretty good.
This is a collector's bow. See my other bows for a nice range of stuff.
