Default An Especially Fine Gothic Crossbow, ca. 1460, Swiss Country Museum Zurich

I owe these images to my friend and our member Alexander (Spiridonov) - thank you you much, Alexander!

Please note the unique cross section photos of the various glued layers on the inside of a Gothic composite bow and the special stamped pattern on the bow surface!

Best,
Michael
