Eccentric - #1-1

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

Provenance: Missouri.

Condition: Super. How would I know if it is perfect or not? I wouldn't. Some pretty sharp rock guys tell me this is a hafted shaft scraper, but I want to at least propose another theory. These eccentrics were many times just made to be eccentrics. Whether they were practice, teaching tool, or someone just showing off, we don't know. When I look at the object, I see two distinct point "bases" that merge together into the big notch. This big notch is what others are seeing as the working portion of the hafted shaft scraper. To acquaint people with the type who are unfamiliar, I have included a picture of Roy Hathcock's famous frame of them. There a couple that remind me of this one in the frame.

Price: $100. Last chance, or I keep it.

Hathcock Frame: Note pieces in upper right.

 

Pickwick - #1-2

Size: 6" long x 2 1/8" wide.

Provenance: Found in Tennessee River Valley. Water find.

Condition: Super. A few small nicks can't take away from this huge point with superior material (jasper like?), superior size, superior patina, superior flaking. A great flint.

Price: $900

 

MacCorkle - #1-3

Size: 3 7/8" L x 1 9/16" wide

Provenance: Darke County, Ohio. X: Richard Shiveley

Condition: Super. I remember Shiveley's big frame of bifurcates. As you can guess, this one stood out. Piece is probably pictured in his material over the years. I didn't research it.

Flint Ridge Dovetail - #1-4

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

Provenance: Found in Mt. Washington area of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. Elstun Road. X: S. Caudill

Condition: Super. They say local is better. Well, this one was found in my old stomping grounds by one of the founders of the Fort Salem Chapter of Ohio Arch. Flint Ridge doves in our area are few and far between.

Fractured Base Decatur - #1-5

Size: 2 1/2" long x 1 11/16" wide.

Provenance: Found in Taylor County, Kentucky. X: Mark Bach. Dwain Rogers COA dated 12/30/2017.

Condition: Super. High quality Boyles Chert that exhibits translucency. I attended the Bach sale in Indianapolis a few years ago, and it was the best decatur sale I have been to. Price tag is based on price paid, and you won't get this type with these attributes any cheaper.

Notched Base Flint Ridge Dovetail - #1-6

Size: 4 1/8" L x 1 5/8" W.

Provenance: Found in Lawrence County, Indiana. Collection of Bob Edler, and Irv Daughtery. Daughtery's iconic tags are on the piece.

Condition: Perfect. Any flaws are too minor for me to knock down the grade. Mineralization pattern is perfect. Size is excellent. Material is what you want. Out of an old collection. Just a great piece.

Price: $1300 ON HOLD>

 

Ohio Basal Notch - #1-7

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

Provenance: Purchased from Gary Noel at the 2006 AACA show at the Drawbridge Inn in Covington, KY.

Condition: Super. I would qualify this as an Ohio Basal Notch. One of the rarer types in the Ohio Flint Types universe. I have yet to see another made of this material, which is a local chert I can't identify.

Price: $175. RESERVED FOR A BUYER>

 

Serrated Dovetail - #1-8

Size: 3" Long x 1 3/4" Wide.

Provenance: Found in Warren County, Ohio near the Little Miami High School in Morrow.

Condition: Excellent. Old construction site find. More than it's fair share of minerals. First stage. Shame about the tip.

Price: $150

 

Lost Lake - #1-9

Size: 3 1/8" L x 1 15/16" W

Provenance: Meade County, Kentucky.

Condition: Good. This point has everything going for it... except a clipped base that many will suggest was intentional. How about that patina on Hornstone?

Price: $150. RESERVED FOR A BUYER>

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

Size: $200
