Thanks. I'm watching it. I wonder just whose finger tip comes with the package?

The back of the bear in the coin does not come to a sharp point at the top of his back. It looks too rounded for a '59-62 coin. So it is a later bow, or a replacement coin.
Also, the limbs don't look to have the classic recurve shape of the Kodiaks and Grizzlies-that leaves the Alaskan and the Cub which were not quite recurves in the leather grip era.
Need better pics and scrape the paint off one of the tips.
