if you showed some pics you might get an offer here ;-)
Best place to get the "right" price is Ebay!

Have you tried googling "jack the yeoman bow" - you will get a few links.

As a bit of a fan boy I have quite a few Yeoman bows & associated markting collateral ....
e.g. '60s recurves WoodColourGlass.jpg

& some '50s semi-recurves

Not aware Yeoman made "longbows", but pioneered in the "composite" recurve market!
Here's some further info, & more here & there ....

These old Yeoman's don't come up often, maybe most broke - don't forget it was the early days of "composite" bows.
Maybe £30-40 .... but depends on condition & who's watching at the time.
There were 4 models that looked like that: Tiger, Panther, Gazelle, Roebuck each model either or both of differing length or draw weight.
The model name should be on the bow - in decal form, the draw weight & length should be stamped on the handle along with a serial no.
There were at least 2 versions of each model which varied the materials used for backing & facing (belly), reflecting the state of "composite"
manufacture in the UK at that time & that imported from the US.
Tiger appears to have been the commonest (those 4 above are Tigers, some are socketed).
It would be useful to see some pics esp. full length & the details: length, draw weight, draw length (which can help identify model if the decal is missing), the backing & facing material & the tips/overlays.
