Mini Flint Ridge Dovetail - #2-1

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

Provenance: Highly faded India ink that looks like Copeland's (won't promise) that reads Marion County, Ohio. Not sure on the GT mash up.

Condition: Excellent. Missing the tip of a basal ear. Some of these small doves started out small, but this one was re-sharpened down from a much bigger starting place. Large and heavily ground base. Highly twisted bevel. Great patina on Flint Ridge.

Price: $25 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

Kirk - #2-2

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

Provenance: Unknown. #5 in the Kevin Sedgwick collection. As a guessing man, I would call it TN Valley, possibly into Alabama from form and material.

Condition: Super. Gray mottled Fort Payne. Concave base.

Price: $75 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

Flint Ridge Blade - #2-3

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

Provenance: Found on the Dilley Farm in Licking County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. This is a mini Adena blade, and shows great evidence of heat treatment. I have used the old timer term of calling this grade of Flint Ridge "Core Material", b/c the Hopewell used it to make blade cores.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Pair of long base Turkey Tails - #2-4

Size: 2 7/8" L x 7/8" W.

Provenance: Both from Darke County, Ohio. Purchased and consigned by a friend who purchased at Tony DeRegnaucourt Estate Auction held by Matt Rismiller.

Condition: Excellent. The darker example has a ding to the side of the tip. Otherwise, no damage. Extra long tails and rare materials for turkey's. Nice little set.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Crescent Shaped Tool - #2-5

Size: 3 5/8" L x 1 1/2" W.

Provenance: Found by Lyman Hussey pre 1957 at the famous Twin Mound Site in Ballard County, Kentucky. At the time of Hussey's discovery, the site was privately owned by Dick Norment, and Hussey paid $0.25 per day to surface hunt the site. Go to home page for link to journal article about the Hussey family.

Condition: Killer. As Spinal Tap would say "The color goes to 11". Stunning pink tones on the chipped side. Crescent shaped with well executed pressure flaking along the cutting edge. The beige tan areas are all 100% un-worked, and represent the natural shape of the flint nodule. The entire outer cortex is very smooth, which I don't know if this was done by polishing by prehistoric man, or if this nodule was a creek for a million years before it was picked up. Either way, it makes for a great smooth finish that no doubt aided in the usefullness of the tool. If you know me, you know this piece is right up my alley.

Giant Wadlow Blade - #2-6

Size: 7 3/8" L x 2 1/4" W.

Provenance: Bought this piece many years ago, and lost it. Just turned up in a drawer. Can't remember the history.

Condition: Good. One corner busted off. Old break. I think the base is made the way it sits. Just a massive blade that is well made.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Fine Triangle - #2-7

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

Provenance: Ohio River Drainage.

Condition: Super. Fine triangle. Nice brown/tan flint.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Adena Beaver Tail - #2-8

Size: 2 5/8" long x 1 1/4" wide.

Provenance: Lewis County, Kentucky.

Condition: Excellent. A creamy Boyles chert that shows translucency. I like these "beaver-tail" style Adena's that are usually considered early Adena, and tend to congregate along the Ohio River.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Boyles Chert Adena - #2-9

Size: 2 9/16" long x 1 1/4" Wide.

Provenance: Fayette County, Kentucky at the Mt. Horeb site that was excavated by the Green River Arch Society in the 1950's.

Condition: Excellent. Great quality Boyles Chert. Judging by the size of the base, this was a giant stemmed blade that was worked down to it's present size. Many re-sharpenings.

Price: $20

 

Kirk - #2-10

Size: 2 1/8" long x 1 3/16" Wide.

Provenance: Gibson County, Indiana. Charles Washington Thompson collection.

Condition: Excellent. One basal ear clipped. Superior flaking and thinness. Ground base only thing that tells me this is Kirk over Jacks Reef.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>
