The limba is so beautiful!

Description says: "Medium-Fast and has a solid feel. 10 1/2"H x 6 1/4"W x .212" thick, Weight 106 Grams."

0.212 thickness means 5.4mm, the blade is so heavy for such a thin blade, maybe the handle is not carved and made out of paduk?

158mm width is a figure we see more often for the head height! The heights seems to be close to 160mm.

With a "USTTA" label, it must date to 1933-1993 since that body renamed to "USATT" in late 1993.. so says Wikipedia.

I forget the manufacturer but someone was looking for these bats here in the forum. I will try to remember who was looking for this manufacturer.  I am pretty sure I know what brand is that bat. Patience ...

no, as a bare blade. I could not resist, I bought it on a hunch, not knowing anything about it, just the colors and the outer ply looked so good I gave up.

It's amazingly well preserved! Perhaps it's never been used?

I really can't remember where I have seen such a blade, but the small sticker near the bottom of the handle is looking same as Cor Du Buy. I have some Rubin blades around 100 grams weight and very good for hardbat. If you are interested let me know. They are with beautiful outer plies limba. Construction is same as Korbel Off...But they are more harder and handles are made with beautiful wenge material...
