I think it looks like a pretty good bow! The warp should not be a problem to take out, I have a guy in Ohio that does really well with this sorta thing.

It looks like an inexpensive commercial bow. Good for planting tomatos...LOL

Carl Grimm(2) - Maker in Sarr - worked c.1841-1870.
Bows stamped GRIMM may have been made by Heinrich Knopf(1) who worked 1860-1875 (good bow maker)
