Restored Clovis - #2-1

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

Provenance: Ohio. Floyd Ritter collection.

Condition: Restored. There are 5 spots of restoriation on this piece. The largest area is one ear. Material is of the highest quality and best patination within Coshocton Chert. Can't even imagine the market premium if not restored. This one sat in Floyd Ritter's famous Paleo frame for many moons, and is probably pictured several times over the years.


Ohio Lost Lake/Deepnotch - #2-2

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

Provenance: Brown County, Ohio.

Condition: Super. No damage to speak of. The material is high grade, translucent, and sits in a gray area between Haney and Carter Cave. When this point was found it created quite a stir in Brown County. The present owner chased it for 15 years. So rare in Ohio, and even rarer in this material scheme.


Deadly Lecroy - #2-3

Size: 1 11/16” L x 1 1/16” W

Provenance: Found in Ohio.

Condition: Perfect. Symmetry isn’t perfect, but that just adds to this piece. Super thin, and deadly. Micro serrations abruptly change into 2 large serrations where the angle of the blade changes. High quality Hornstone. 



Flint Ridge Adena - #2-4

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

Provenance: Found off I-75 North of Dayton, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Highly translucent. Great color, and the backside reveals a wonderful surprise. The backside is about half unifaced, and it is easy to see the area. The outer cortex of the flint remains, and it is a wonderful bright orange/red combo. The maker left it, and worked around the area. Very classy material and flint.



Cliff Bauer Flint Ridge Cobbs Knife - #2-5

Size: 4 3/8" L x 1 5/8" W.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer purchased from Frank Shipley on 4/23/1956 for $.50. Cliff valued at $5 at time of purchase. Bauer Small Notebook Page 24 will be included with purchase. Lot 316 Bauer sale.

Condition: Excellent. Ridiculous Flint Ridge color, but still wonderfully muted as all good Flint Ridge is. Nicely beveled with good size. Some nicks.



Jack Hooks E-Notch - #2-6

Size: 2 9/16” L x 1 3/8” W

Provenance: Found in Richland County, Ohio. X: Jack Hooks.

Condition: Super. A few superficial edge nicks. Very few E-notches show this level of extreme thinness. Some serrations. Perfect E’s. 

Price: $200


Cliff Bauer E-Notch - #2-7

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

Provenance: Found in Ross County, Ohio. Cliff Bauer traded Frank Shipley a book for this piece on 2/22/1951. Cliff's large notebook P. 23 included with piece. Bauer sale #186.

Condition: Excellent. Get over the tip, or have it restored. You won't see but a handful of E-notches of this size. You will see exactly 1 made of this unique and beautiful grade of Flint Ridge. In fact, I have not seen another piece of any type made from Flint Ridge like this. A true stunning relic with provenance back to 1951.



E-Notch Blunt - #2-8

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

Provenance: Found in Licking County, Ohio.

Condition: Super. Oh my. What a great piece of Flint Ridge. So waxy that the camera flash blows back from any angle. Backside is concave. I have seen this feature many times, and wonder if the master Early Archaic knappers used this purposefully to make the blade work better.

Price: $125- Reserved.


Heavy Duty - #2-9

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

Provenance: Found in Putnam County, Ohio. X: Mike Keil.

Condition: Excellent. Heavy Duty's are a favorite, and considered one of the work horses of the Early Archaic. They are mean, tough, and meant for dirty jobs. No wonder they chose the highest quality materials, and always exhibit great workmanship. Many of this type are fluted, and this one had the core flake worked into the backside where the flutes normally exist. I guess you could term it partially unifaced. I went this far and barely mentioned all the colors in this piece.



Red Hopewell - #2-10

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

Provenance: Ohio. Dan Schleich purchased many moons ago, but doesn't remember anything else.

Condition: Super. Black and garnet colored Flint Ridge that should qualify as Nether's just by the color alone. I guess you could try to get better color, but good luck. You can also think about how this point was probably cooked inside an animal. Two fire pops on the backside are a testament to this fact, and it is a minor miracle that the piece didn't break.



Ohio Micronotch - #2-11

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

Provenance: Found in Pickaway County.

Condition: Excellent. Tip is missing a smidge. Super thin, but still has a medial ridge. Perfect minerals and patina. Super rare Ohio type that ranks among my all time favorites.



Unique Flint Ridge Unifacial Piece - #2-12

Size: 2 7/8" L x 1 5/16" W

Provenance: Found in Knox County.

Condition: Excellent. This one is pretty wild. Overall shape is rather Thebes like. However, the construction and feel is the seldom seen "hafted shaft scraper" of the Archaic. Unifaced and twisted. Crazy Flint Ridge.

Price: $75
