jonesing for a barnes…or barnesing for a barnes…

Last year (June 11th) I was minding my business when an interesting bow appeared on ebay. I hemmed and hawed, got out my O’Leary book, and found the page which featured the 1884 Barnes patent bow. I ran back upstairs to my computer, and opened the listing again. And, already a buy it now had been added. I snapped it up–although it pretty much surpassed my average purchase price significantly. So…today, imagine my surprise when another Barnes shows up on ebay–this time the direct pull! The buy it now was high, but I jumped on it, as I wanted the companion piece… The seller claims it is unmarked, but maybe close examination will show otherwise. Now all I need is the double helix version…anyone have an extra?
