I found the exact same arrows in my parentsí attic! Mine are not in as good of condition, but I do know my grandfather hunted with them. Nice find!

There's some deteriorated paper in the bottom. I'll get it out and read what I can. He said he believes they are mid to late 60s vintage. I'm going to dust things off and keep them as is.

There were several broadheads in the box. I may clean them up and make them look nice for a display. Having the box is a nice touch.

Pretty dang cool, would not mind having some of those for a display, along with a old recurve. I have had bad experiences shooting both old bows and old wooden arrows, I won't shoot either again, but they could make nice display pieces.
