Decided to start an old catalog thread. They are in no particular order, just as they were pulled out of the box. Most are not dated or numbered. Some have prices, some don't. It was not unusual for a manufacturer or dealer to not include prices in the catalog. Sometimes you would get a price list and order form included. That way they could keep the same catalog, provided the product didn't change, for more than a year and just update the prices.
I'll add more as I get them scanned.
Really interesting stuff indeed! That bow latch thing kinda scares me tho.I can just feel the pain of my hand being pinched by the grip upon release of the string when the limbs go forward and then return.Ouch!!! Also interesting how in the catalogues,how often they mention how fast you can assemble your take down bows.Always thought back in those days,people had more time on there hands. 😳 But again,thanks so much for the effort and time you put into posting archery history.
Very cool stuff! Those prices amaze me! The dollar sure used to go a lot farther that it does today!
I'll bet there's some bones in that wood if ya know what I mean,,,,,badda bing 😎
I wouldn't try the "beefwood' footings either...lol
