Wing made great target and hunting recurves, took a beating when compounds came out, ended up as a part of Head Ski,IIRC.

What you have is a light target bow of no great collector value, but it's probably a good starter bow for a kid.

Make sure the limbs are not twisted nor delaminating, put on a new string and you're set.

Some of the collectors over on the Bowsite can give you more input...
