Cool thread. Thanks for sharing it. Just getting started myself. What have you found to be the best way to display them? I've seen were some people use fuse clips to mount them in their cabinets. Is that what most collectors do?

If you are not a member of the American Broadhead Collector's Club, becoming a member would be your first big step in collecting broadheads. Greg Schwehr is the Membership Chairman (414) 463-8685, Gregory.schwehr@yahoo.com .

So far my pics are the display, I'm over due on making my display cases. :oops:

I've seen many display cases using the clips and I will be using the clips. I've also seen some really neat cases that did not use the clips. Do a search for broadhead display cases, at the top of this thread, you will get to see a lot of different ways to display your broadheads and other archery collectibles. It really comes down to your personal choice, but would suggest looking at many cases before making your decision.

Since buying Joe's broadhead collection, I have not found or taken the time to post the heads I merged into my collection or the traders I've received from several trades. I have taken pics and added to my photobucket, here is a link to http://s698.photobucket.com/albums/vv34 ... ollection/ for anyone interested.

Im very new to collecting and i feel after reading some posts about black copperhead slicers that i have bought a set of broadheads that has been altered. Please show mercy :oops: . i didnt pay too much for them. but still stinks to be a very very new collector who is quick to bite on things with a low price. Im trying buy and collect but i know it takes time.

Don't get discouraged with modified heads that comes with the territory and a collector of anything who tells you they have not been stung simply is not collecting. The most useful guide for BHs is the one produced by Wade Philips. I would find it pretty much impossible to collect BHs without that.
Have fun!

bjorn is correct, we collectors get stung every once in awhile but I believe you have six ABCC #0241.000 1977 Black Copperhead Talon 1 Notch 114 gr. "Originally made as a special order single notch Magnum with the PAT. PEND. or SLICER stamp and .021 thick blade. Later offered as a regular product by Furlong, named Talon with .027" thick blade with MAGNUM stamp. Insert from Wade's book"
Image

If you are not a member of the American Broadhead Collectors Club, joining would be your first big step as a collector. The ABCC, Wade and many others have published broadhead books that would help in learning the history and identifying broadheads.

bowhunterfrompast, you were exsactly right. heres a picture of the box and one close up of the broadhead. It even says "talon" on the box. i just assumed that nothing original would have the name written in marker. I have alot to learn. I have really considered getting into the ABCC, it seems like a no brainer.

I attended the 2011 ABCC Annual Meeting. From the moment I arrived til I headed home, I was busy with meeting old and new friends. I also managed to do some trading, gifting and being gifted broadheads, and purchased a couple of heads that I was looking for.

I made a couple of trades with Brian Nash and the rest he gifted to me. At the end of the weekend, Brian was emptying his trader box for the trip home.

Did Jack Bowers design and make this head for Dean Torges and Alaska Bowhunting?

I found this info on Dean's site. Tie-on trade points, designed by Jack Bowers.

They look identical, would be interesting to find out if those are Jack Bowers trade points or if Dean is the manufacturer. Will have to do some digging.....Thanks for posting your pic.
