JACKSON NO. 5 Olympic Barbell Set 362.lbs Bars Plates Collars Complete - $1800 (West Lafayette)


condition: good
make / manufacturer: Jackson Barbell
model name / number: No. 5

This is an entire set of classic Jackson No. 5 weights with some extras. These were made by Andy Jackson himself at his house in New Jersey and purchased together via mail correspondence by my father in the late 60's. They were used for about 50 years in his various home gyms around the country. These are extremely hard to find and would make a great addition to someone who can appreciate the fine workmanship of Andy Jackson.

The set includes:
(1) Jackson No. 5 Revolving Sleeve Olympic Barbell with Red Jackson Collars

(SOLD) Jackson No. 5 Barbell (not sure on the variant, it has a different inner collar, but same shaft diameter)

(2) 50 lb Plates
(2) 35 lb Plates
(2) 25 lb Plates
(2) 20 lb Plates
(2) 10 lb Plates (4 pictured, only 2 in this lot)
(4) 5 lb Plates
(4) 2-1/2 lb Plates
(6) 1-1/4 lb Plates
(8) Various oz weights that fit the barbells for finer weight increments than the 1-1/4 lb plates. I've never seen these before, but they were machined exactly for these barbells.
(4) Red Jackson Collars

The weights are in good condition for the age. Most of the paint has worn off, and there is some rust on the 50lb plates. The other plates are in good shape and have been preserved with a light coat of gun oil.

I also have some letter correspondence my father received from Andy Jackson. I can send you the scans.
