Flint Ridge Large Base Dovetail - #1-1

Size: 4 1/2" L x 1 13/16" W.

Provenance: Found in Licking County near Newark, Ohio. Dr. Stanley Copeland "Circle" number 115. Roger Mayne purchased from Doctor Copeland.

Condition: Museum. I can state with certainty that this is the best flint piece I have offered on this website. Material is very close to what we call Moss Agate Flint Ridge. The translucent pic was taken on a cloudy day. this piece absolutely glows in the sunlight. The big base form of Flint Ridge dovetail is almost always made from gem flint, and this is no exception. Add in that Copeland collected it, and you have a top calibre Ohio flint. Couldn't help myself and put in a big picture at the bottom with the USA flag in the background.



Flint Ridge Small (Button) Base Dovetail - #1-2

Size: 3 7/8" long x 1 1/2" wide.

Provenance: Delaware County, Ohio. Dr. Stanley Copeland labeled.

Condition: Museum. This one has it going on. The Cat's Meow. High color Flint Ridge. Arguably the most collectible flint type in it's ultimate form and material. Collected by the best. No brainer old.



Doctor Meuser Dovetail - #1-3

Size: 2 3/4" L x 1 3/8" wide

Provenance: Found in Darke County, Ohio. Purchased from Dr. Gordon Meuser on 4/3/1951 for $2 by Cliff Bauer. Catalog page from Bauer included with piece.

Condition: Museum. Fine as they come. Tan and White streaked Flint Ridge. Even a bit serrated.



Flint Ridge Dovetail - #1-4

Size: 2 3/4" long x 1 7/16" wide.

Provenance: Ohio. X: L. Pfeiffer.

Condition: Excellent. A few little spots of use wear. Great material. Note the small bits of purple pushing through the cloudy gray/blue color. Qualifies as a standard base, and a very nice flint.



Flint Ridge Dovetail - #1-5

Size: 2 3/4" long x 1 1/8" wide.

Provenance: Found in Richland County, Ohio. Collected by Dean Driscoll, and was part of his wonderful "boards" that re-surfaced about 4 years ago.

Condition: Super. An icey Flint Ridge with color popping through the matrix. Flat on one side, and a high median ridge on the other side. Should qualify as a button base, and a very fine piece of rock hard candy. But not the kind of candy for eating.

Price: $350


Flint Ridge Dovetail - #1-6

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

Provenance: Found in Ohio. Collected by Dean Driscoll, and was part of his wonderful "boards" that re-surfaced about 4 years ago.

Condition: Super. Among this pieces many great traits, my favorite is that is almost a scale model of the large Button Base types. Over the years, I have seen a decent number of dovetails that were made small. Maybe it was all the size they could get from a piece of flint, or maybe for a different task, or maybe for a child. I don't know, but this piece was never 6" and re-sharpened down to it's current size.



Flint Ridge Hopewell - #1-7

Size: 3 5/8" long x 1 7/8" wide.

Provenance: C. Max collection out of Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. A little glue on the back. Will come off easily after a soak in water. Highly translucent, and larger than most of the type. Flint Ridge Chalcedony.

Price: $75


Paleo Lance - #1-8

Size: 4 1/2" Long x 1 5/16" Wide.

Provenance: Clark County, Ohio. X: L. Pfeiffer.

Condition: Super. Tremendous size. Has some percussion parallel flaking which may make it an Ohio Lance subtype.



Paleo Lance - #1-9

Size: 2 13/16" L x 1 1/8" W

Provenance: Tuscarawas County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Super material. Striped and highly patinated Coshocton in a color scheme that is rarely seen. Thin and twisted to the side.



Ohio Deep Notch Lost Lake - #1-10

Size: 1 3/4" long x 1 1/2" wide.

Provenance: Found in Ohio. Purchased by Cliff Bauer on 5/18/1954 from Bernard Cluff for $2.50. Bauer catalog page included with piece.

Condition: Perfect. I am willing to overlook any extremely minor imperfections. There is a reason I have kept this piece for almost 8 years. Mercer flint that has taken a distinct green patination. Old timer's called this type an "Ace of Spades". I call it an Ohio Deep Notch. Nearly everybody else calls it a Lost Lake. I know it is small, but it is mighty.



Race Car Side Notch - #1-11

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

Provenance: Found in Indiana. Collected by legendary old timer David Warner

Condition: Super. I should have my head examined (again) for selling this. Whatever $ it produces, will not equal the joy I have in viewing and handling this piece. Race Car b/c of the stripe.



Brilliant Color Arrowhead - #1-12

Size: 3 13/16" L x 1 1/16" W

Provenance: Found in Missouri. Purchased at L. Fosterling estate auction held in the mid 1980's.

Condition: Super. I am at a loss to describe the vibrance of the color in this piece. I can't think of any I have owned from Missouri with this much color. The color tones are stronger than anything I own. As such, you will have to sacrifice your dollars to take it home.



Sonora Pinetree "The Tempest" - #1-13

Size: 2 11/16" L X 1 11/16" W

Provenance: This piece was found by Andy Jack around Xenia, Ohio in the early 1900's. The Jack collection was the first collection I ever purchased. Don't want to date myself by saying how long ago it was. Safe to say many years ago. In the year 2000, I had Tom Davis COA the piece, which is included.

Condition: Killer.  I call it the “Tempest”, b/c of the blue swirl.  Also, this piece has a very cool, and highly unusual large quartz crystal sticking off the blade edge.  It throws off the symmetry a bit, but so worth it in the rare feature department. One of my favorite points I ever owned. Sold it 10 years ago, and just got it back. Realized it was meant for someone else, so here is your chance.

Price: $1000


Turkey Tail Hebron - #1-14

Size: 4 1/2" L x 2 7/16" W

Provenance: White County, Illinois.

Condition: Super. Giant hand filler piece. The kind of greenish patina you don't have to look twice at it. I want to call this material Indiana Hornstone, but with the find location in White County, Illinois, it could be Cobden. Previous owner thought it was cobden. I venture to say that this is a frame centerpiece, and a top notch piece for any collection.



Hornstone Notched Base Dovetail - #1-15

Size: 3 7/8" L x 1 3/4" W

Provenance: Southern Indiana.

Condition: Super. Classic Ohio River drainage style dovetail with a beautiful notched base. And what do you know, it's Green Hornstone. Note one small side nick that shows the fresh grey colored Hornstone. Folks, this patina does not happen overnight. Green hornstone patina is literally one of the safest bets in relic collecting.



Hornstone Dovetail - #1-16

Size: 4" L x 1 1/2" W

Provenance: Found at Bear Creek Township, Indiana. Jay County.

Condition: Super. Tip isn't quite perfect, but close. Light colored Hornstone with a notch base like so many Indiana Dovetails. Great size, superior flaking.

Price: $1100


Flint Ridge Dovetail - #1-17

Size: 3 1/16" L x 1 1/2" W

Provenance: Union County, Ohio. Apparently, everyone owned it based on the ink. X: Dick Johnson, Dean Driscoll, L. Weidner. I like labeling, and feel strongly it is the best way to keep documentation with a piece, but you don't have to write your name on a piece if the documentation is already on it.

Condition: Super. Fine Flint Ridge, with some strawberry seeds in it. Translucent, well patinated and mineralized.

Price: $750

Townsend Dovetail - #1-18

Size: 4 3/16" L x 1 1/2" W

Provenance: Indiana. Earl Townsend Jr. Collection. I have a photo that will be included of this piece on Earl's wall.

Condition: Super. Rare material for a large flint. This would class as a top piece made from Liston. Great serrations, notched base, no brainer old.

Price: $1800
