Fine little Ohio Bifurcate - #1-1

Size: 1 7/16" L x 1 3/16" W.

Provenance: Ohio.

Condition: Perfect. I know this one is small, but it is very fine, and has an almost ridiculous level of thinness. Very nice blue/black Mercer with lightning lines.



Notch Base Dovetail - #1-2

Size: 3 3/4" long x 1 5/8" wide.

Provenance: Sandusky County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. One side ding about 1/3 up the blade edge. Classic style for black flint dovetail. Edge flaking that terminates into toothy serrations is superior.



Monster Early Side Notch - #1-3

Size: 4 1/4" x 2 1/16" wide.

Provenance: Coshocton County, Ohio. Collected and labeled by Dr. Stanley Copeland.

Condition: Excellent. There is an impact fracture on one side of the tip. A few very small chatter marks along the edges. Typology - Big Sandy isn't right for this piece. It is a very unique Early Archaic type that is known in Ohio. There is no formal name, but it most closely mimics Cache River types from South of Ohio. Extrordinarily thin for size, heavily ground base, made with large almost transverse percussion flakes with fine pressure edgework. High grade glossy Blue Mercer. Collected by Ohio's flint king.


Attempt to show flaking. Note the big percussion flakes with pressure edgework.


Big Blue Restored Ear Kirk - #1-4

Size: 3 11/16" long x 2" wide.

Provenance: Unknown. Looks Ohio Coshocton to me.

Condition: Restored Ear. Going to put up a few restored pieces that are exceptional. This one is big, beveled and good looking. Ear restoration is pretty good



Meadowood -Broken/Glued - #1-5

Size: 4 3/4" long x 1 3/4" wide.

Provenance: Found in Ashtabula County, Ohio.

Condition: Broken/Glued. Huge piece of flint. Shame it is broken. I have had it for a while, and putting it up at the giveaway price.



The Greatest 2/3 Lost Lake - #1-6

Size: 4 71/8" L x 1 7/8" W.

Provenance: Southern Indiana.

Condition: Basal 1/3 restored. I really don't know if I have seen a better lost lake. Quite simply, it is of the highest quality and artistic craftsmanship. Material appears to be Bullseye Indiana Hornstone that has patinated extremely light, almost green. That was the good news, now for the bad. The best I can tell, the base, and part of both ears are restored. This restoration is of the quality deserving of this incredible flint. It must be Sam Speck's work from the early 1990's, and it blends so well, I am not sure where the restoration starts. Thinking this is at least a 5K piece of flint if complete.



Large Ohio Thebes - #1-7

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

Provenance: Found in Franklin County, Ohio.

Condition: Good. Nicks and scrapes from hard work in the Early Archaic. Nice two tone Coshocton. Large for the type, which is the classic Thebes style and form. Clearly resharpened multiple times, but very little bevel.



Huge Group of Unifacial Knives - #1-8

Size: Top center piece is 3 7/8" L x 1 5/8" W

Provenance: Various locations. Most are Southern Indiana from the Dr. Hasewinkle collection.

Condition: Varies. 19 total examples. Here is a great chance to have a ready made collection of this enigmatic Paleo form. I am pricing the group at $10 each. Will not split it up. Every example is unique, and shows excellent secondary workmanship.



Blue Ohio Bevel - #1-9

Size: Maybe an eyelash under 3" L x 1 3/4" W

Provenance: Found in 1936 at Hell Branch, Franklin County, Ohio. Hell Branch is a stream near Columbus.

Condition: Good. Decent side nick and tip isn't perfect. Highly twisted and beveled. Perfect and abundant mineralization.



Choclate E-Notch - #1-10

Size: 3 1/16" long x 1 9/16" wide.

Provenance: Found in Franklin County, Ohio. Collected by Bob Weeks, who was a friend of Stan Copeland. Last sold 10/1979.

Condition: Excellent. Not too often that you see brown Coshocton. Color could be all patination. Overall, a great E-notch.



Flint Ridge Hopewell - #1-11

Size: 2 11/16" L x 1 3/4" W. How about that for surface area?

Provenance: Found in Miami County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Not perfect, but form holds together well. Probably grade a 7.5. Of course, this doesn't account for the material, which is a 10. Smooth and muted Flint Ridge colors like it should be. A bit closer to the Snyder's style of Hopewell from West of Ohio. I wonder aloud if being found in Miami County (West of Ohio Hopewell heart territory) might account for subtle form variation.



Knight Island - #1-12

Size: 3 5/8" L x 1 5/8" wide !!!!

Provenance: Found in Kentucky. Tom Davis COA dated 8/2003 G-8.

Condition: Excellent. A bit ragged on the edges, but much better in hand. Davis might be a bit high at an 8, but it is a very solid 7. Very thin, fine delicate notches, and HUGE for the type.
