Help aging my Bear Grizzly Pics added
« on: June 16, 2019, 10:04:34 PM »
So I picked up a really nice Grizzly at Compton. The serial number is 18CB71 I tried to search it but still having a hard time figuring it out. It's kinda hard to tell the color of the medallion. I appreciate any help. Thanks

We need a pic to be sure, BUT medallion present means 1959 and later.  Serial # puts it earlier than 1965.
 I have a '62 and '63 Griz with similar serial which probably means absolutely nothing... :thumbsup:

Very nice, the 1965 model was the same wood.
