hey guys, i have this old bow i found in my basement. it appears to be old, and it is a york archery product. the sticker says it's a five foot, 35 lb draw, with a cat no. of sg5 (and a 1, 7, or nine, the sticker's ripped.) can you help me with the age, and if it's of any value? thanks guys! ps the brown is just dirt. no visible cracks but i will be doing a thorough investigation.

I see a couple Yorks that look similar on EBay, going for 10 or 20 bucks. Clean it up and hang it on the wall, it would look cool there!
