I think I goofed on the first reply. I have seen a number of these air rifles, actually sold mine a few years back. Your 108  is the nicest one I have seen, 
and first first  one i have seen in Elm, it's a beauty.

is it elm or is it black ash
all I know is Crosman used Ash for stocks on the 160-180-400 rifle and if you look at pictures of those stock and this one it would be hard to tell
American Red Elm and Black Ash are hard to tell apart
it doesn't really matter, just an interesting observation

I think that the first 107 I ever had, with complete serial numbers, was Elm but I haven't seen that gun in over 20 years.... so ...

There is the Hahn family story of when PY Hahn would load his boys into the company station wagon and go to where there was a huge stash of military surplus blank wood stocks and had the boys load up the wagon. The boys remember dad taking the time to pick out some of the better wood for salesman samples, etc.
