    Ok the value of this bow is all dependent on if its an X200, 101, X99, X85 of the TF. So which model is it. Does it have the black walnut riser of the all rosewood riser? Any buyer needs to know those things before they can even attempt to decide to make you an offer. To go for 700 its going to have to be the X200 or the 101 with rosewood riser. I am not dissing on the thread but trying to provide some clarity and guidance for the OP. Also is the serial number between 11311 and 14490 (as that was 1965 production serial numbers)?

    John so you have a 68" Rosewood riser 101 target with white glass limbs. Has the riser been drilled for sights, burger button etc. Most of them in 65 were not done that way at the factory. Some of the later T600's etc may have have been done so by Wilson Bros. I would post pics of it and put it in the traditional section too. Price of 700 for it if its in extremely good condition is in the neighborhood of reasonable considering the rareness of the Rosewood riser. Go figure it cost 139.50 in 1965. Those were the days.

    The riser does have a sight still on it, the condition excellent. The handmade box is full of arrows , strings ,sights , finger things and arm shields, it is really neat.
