What the heck type of wood is this?

Recommended Posts

Trying to identify this wood from a private collection, as I’m trying to learn... the tip plate looks odd like it’s been made with out the “tip-tip” adjacent plate.  It looks really orange, almost too orange for any pernambuco I’ve ever seen.  The chamfer looks pretty nice with good depth.  Can’t tell if the head looks “stubby” like a Markie, or if it just appears that way without that little bit of tip-tip plating.  I also know it weighs about 50 grams without any hair, grip or lapping.  It does have a stamp, but I would like to hear opinions without revealing that, because it does not matter anyway, right? ;)

I see a few dark specs over light, but then I wonder if that even matters for pernambuco.  If French, what other types of wood were used aside from Abeille, Pernambuco and Snakewood?

It looks like Pernambuco to me, but just not darkened, stained or otherwise colored. It may not be the highest grade of wood, though. 

There are others here that are far better than I am at ID'ing these things, though.

I may have misspoke in my OP.  This is a bow I am looking at from a private collection, but not mine.  Here are the photos I do have, less the stamp (which I am keeping super-secret). :)
