The fifth one has wooden prongs. The bows measure from 40.50" long up to 49.50" long. I would not recommend using it for archery because of the age.It would make an excellent display piece. Perfect as a Christmas Holiday Gift. The overall condition is very nice for it's age.
The bow is in solid shape. The twine is tightly weaved. One of the steel tips on the bow comes out. The twine has unraveled a little but, can be redone.The feathers on the back seem to be fine. They all go by dimensional weight now.
