Thin Bifurcate - #1-1

Size: 2 3/8" L x 1 1/8" W.

Provenance: Found in Licking County by James Aldag. Long list of x: collectors that I will share with buyer.

Condition:: Super. I want to call material a white patinated Coshocton. Piece is extra long for the type, and extra thin. Delicate bifurcated base and ears.



Flat Base Dovetail - #1-2

Size: 4 3/8" long x 1 13/16" wide.

Provenance: This was found in either Wayne or Crawford County, Ohio. Collector hunted those areas.

Condition: Excellent. There is an old impact fracture that I highlighted in the pictures. Amazingly, this impact didn't break the tip off. Piece displays like whole, and the impact doesn't effect overall condition much b/c of the way it formed. High grade Flint Ridge, which is the material choice for nearly 100% of this rare Dovetail variant. I love the way the notches are different sizes, and this was clearly a choice of the maker. Don't miss a chance to get a a piece like this.

Price: $400. REDUCED>


Large Adena - #1-3

Size: 5 1/4" L x 1 1/4" wide

Provenance: Found in Wyandot County, Ohio. Collected by Paul Hothem.

Condition: Super. Superior size, and it was probably a decent amount bigger before it was sharpened down. I base this guess on the massive size of the base. This is Flint Ridge, and it is translucent.



Moss Agate Blade - #1-4

Size: 2 1/8" long x 1 1/4" wide.

Provenance: Found in Licking County, Ohio near Ridgley Track by James Aldag.

Condition: Super. This is the King of Ohio materials. Flint Ridge Moss Agate. Wonderful almost like translucency throughout the piece with great areas that patinated a cloudy blue color. Superior Hopewell blade. Tip has a slight inward curve that is evidence this was made from a flake.



Thebes - #1-5

Size: 2 1/4" long x 1" wide.

Provenance: Wally Dibble Collection. Cass County, Indiana.

Condition: Super. Small amount of glue on the front. Easily removed by setting in water. I put this on page one b/c I find it to be a very fine smaller point. High grade material with translucency. There is an impact on one side near the tip that doesn't effect piece much at all. solid 8 of 10.

Price: $75


Sonora Flint Quad - #1-6

Size: 2" L x 1" W.

Provenance: Ashland, Kentucky. Boyd County. This is not the center of Sonora distribution, and this one was a traveler. I don't know who marked with 707, but it is older India Ink.

Condition: Super. I think this is the cat's meow. Superior material, color, age.... Not realy big, but mighty.

Price: $1100


Flint Ridge Adena Cache Blade - #1-7

Size: 2 13/16" long x 1 13/16" wide.

Provenance: Found in Marion County, Ohio. Collected by famous old timer Dick Johnson. Normally he put his initials DJ on pieces, but he was rather proud of this beauty. I don't blame him.

Condition: Beautiful. Superior workmanship, superior material. I can't get enough of the blues in this piece, and they darker inclusions that dance across the faces of this piece. I don't know if this was part of a cache, but I doubt it was ever meant for use. Just too pretty to soil with carved up animal guts.



Sonora Flint Notch Base Dovetail - #1-8

Size: 2 3/8" L x 1 1/8" W.

Provenance: I have a tag that will be supplied to the buyer that is difficult to decipher. My best guess is that it says Hyden, Kentucky, which is the county seat of Leslie County.

Condition: Super. Well, if you like Sonora, I am guessing this one will get you going. Darn near every color in the rainbow represented. Heavily beveled. Great notched base with excellent grinding. A killer flint. If you don't buy it, I will. Oh wait, I already own it....

Price: $300


Big Old Meadowood - #1-9

Provenance: Ross County, Ohio. In the famous collection of David Warner (Howe, Indiana). Sold at his auction in 1983. Included below is a photo of the piece in the Warner collection.

Condition: Excellent. In terms of Meadowoods, this sits right at the top of the food chain. Big and wide. Jet black high grade Upper Mercer material.

Flint Ridge Dovetail - #1-10

Size: 3 5/16" long x 1 3/8" wide.

Provenance: Very cool that this piece was found near Fort Ancient. Warren County. x: old timer EK Petrie, with his writing on it. DA was a price code

Condition: Super. A nip to the tip. Superior material, form, and mineralization. Dove's like this are what everyone is looking for. The combination of the traits just not seen in this day and age of cleaned up flint selling for thousands without a speck of age. Get one you can always be confident in.

Nether's Flint Hopewell - #1-11

Size: 2 3/4" Lx 1 5/8" W

Provenance: Marion County, Ohio. #325 in the famous Dean Driscoll collection.

Condition: Super. Just about the prettiest piece of Nether's Flint Ridge I have seen. And it comes from a provenance and era before this flint was being mined commercially. Of course, modern quarry Nether's doesn't look like this..... In terms of Ohio rarity and beauty, this piece punches the ticket.
