I think I am still under an injunction not to post photos of the most beautiful bow, a 1962 Browning Diana, so here is a glimpse of a 1964 Howatt Hunter that,as Elle woods would say, is "not totally unfortunate-looking."

Bryan -

That Staghorn beauty was mine - went to a guy in WI. I'm not sure if he is a Leatherwall guy or not.

I've been letting some bows go - been saying I was going to thin down my 35+ year accumulation of bows for at least 5 years :).

I just let this one go tonight - 61 Kodiak Special. Man it's so much tougher to let them go than welcoming one in...

I'm a little biased but you boys with the rosewood Howatts are winning this race. All these bows are beautiful but those 1960's Howatts are amazing.
