Smile New Bow Day!

So,

Ended up getting a new/used bow today! It's a W. Seifert bow, it had a few issues but the original owner had them all fixed (finish was coming off, and wrap was worn). He claims that it is about 40 years old, however a friend who owns a few L Seifert's and W Seiferts says that it might even be older than that! I have seen info on these bows before, and I am aware of the history.

My questions are, is it unusual to have one that has a very rigid camber? Is it also unusual to see what I think is figuring in the pernambuco?

I will post some pictures tomorrow, just wanted to share :-)

It sounds better than the L Seifert he brought to compare ;-)
