For your consideration, we have a Ben Pearson Recurve Bow. It is part of the Golden Sovereign Mace 1059 model collection.
In very good condition. The material on the arrow rest is worn down. Comes with bag and bowstring.
In 1961 Pearson came out with the Golden and Silver Sovereign line. The Golden series was the top line. The Silver Sovereign series bows were made from 1961-1964; and the Golden Sovereign from 1961-1971. Models included, in various years:
- Golden series: Monarch, Conqueror, Emperor, Regent, Crusader, Lord Mercury, Lady Mercury, Lord Sovereign, Lady Sovereign, Mercury Hunter, Prince, Knight, Falcon, Mace, Scot, Baron, and Duke.
- Silver series: Highlander, Tartan, Marauder.
The early Golden and Silver models had one fatal flaw. Pearson used Urac 185 back then which is a poor substitute for lamination glue. It broke down relatively fast when exposed to extreme heat and or cold, and was unstable. As a result, bows would delaminate. Hence, this was corrected and Pearson expanded the “Sovereign” line. These additions were high end and high quality, such as the Conqueror hunting bow. Eventually, the Sovereign line was discontinued in 1971. In 1967 the Sovereign line included the (from most to least expensive): Lord Mercury, Lady Mercury, Lord Sovereign, Lady Sovereign, Mercury Hunter, Prince, Knight, Falcon, Mace, Scot, Baron, and Duke.
This Ben Pearson Recurve Bow is markedly the perfect asset to any collection!
