I'm probably wasting time but I'll answer the two year old question asked by the OP.. Yes, There are several traditional sites that can help identify your Howatt. But my goto site for anything Old Classic Bows is Stickwall.com. Leatherwall

http://leatherwall.bowsite.com/TF/lw/THREADSx2.CFM

http://tradtalk.com/forums/ Larry Hatfield is a frequent poster on both sites and may have worked on your bow.

I just picked up a Martin Howatt Takedown Hunter. I was told that the date code is on my limbs (assuming they are THE Original ones that came with the riser?).. Mine show 1488... January 4 1988. True or Not is the question ??

I see this an old thread. But to answer the question, its a 1966-67 Howatt Hunter.

your Howatt Hunter was made in 1969 based on the 3rd letter "O" and the serial 1809...
during late 1961 - 1971 a 3rd letter was used to identify the year made...
the 3rd letter "O" was established for 1968-1969
using the Howatt database I'm currently maintaining, I can narrow down the exact year.

here are the 3rd letter codes used during during late 1961 - 1971
1961 = 7 (w/ slash)
1962 = V
1963 = X
1964 = S
1965 = T
1966-67 = A
1968-69 = O
1970-71 = P


let me know if you have any further questions...

Check eBay by doing a search for Howatt recurves and filter by closed or sold listings... This should give you an idea of current market value. Sorry, I don't give values anymore as it changes due to timing (whos looking and when) and the condition of the item in question and some luck...
