Hodge - Podge


Highly developed Cahokia Style Birdpoint - #2-1

Size: 1 11/16" L x 5/8" W

Provenance: Found in Polk County, Missouri 1933. I can't remember this collection name, but it was a big early collection. I recently spoke to someone who wanted me to contact them if I ended up with pieces from this collection. I hope you get it, but your name slips my mind.

Condition: Perfect. This is a double notch, and fine in all manner. I know some of these can bring thousands, but I just don't know what qualifies. I do know this point is extremely fine. Priced according to the amount I paid for it.

Price: $100 - RESERVED


Black Stemmed Point - #2-2

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

Provenance: Found in Whitley County, IN. X: Bob Tharp.

Condition: Excellent. This has been through the wars, but survived well. I almost want to call this a Stemmed Lance, b/c it has percussion flaking to a center line. Stem is not ground, so safer to say Adena. Although it is Mercer Chert that traveled a long way, which is indicative of earlier pieces.

Price: $75 - RESERVED


Nebo Hill - #2-3

Size: 4 13/16" L x 1 5/16" W

Provenance: Western Indiana. X: Bob Tharp.

Condition: Super. One old impact about 1/3 up from the base. It runs vertically, and is almost worked into the form of the point. This point is much finer than most of the type with a thinness you don't see often. Also, some great pressure edge flaking.

Price: $125 - RESERVED

You can see the impact in this picture:


Highly Translucent Jacks Reef Pentagonal - #2-4

Size: 1 11/16" L x 3/4" W

Provenance: Early Karl Parchert collection. His number F114.

Condition: Super. Extremely thin, and Parchert considered it Paleo b/c of the basal thinning that looks like flutes. The shape is obviously very Paleo like, but this is a Southern (probably TN Valley) Jacks Reef Pentagonal, and a darn nice one. I believe material is Knox, and it is highly translucent.

Price: $75


Mini Sonora Mystery Point - #2-5

Size: 1 3/8" L x 13/16" W

Provenance: Early Karl Parchert collection. His number F116.

Condition: Super. There is a ding to the side of the tip that is old. If this piece had any grinding, I would call it Paleo all the way. As is, safer bet would be in the Intrusive Mound family, but I won't rule out Paleo Hi-Lo type. Pictures say a 1000 words on this fine piece of hard rock candy.

Price: $100


Hixton Stemmed Point - #2-6

Price: 2 5/8" L x 1 1/16" W.

Provenance: Wisconsin. Karl Parchert collection.

Condition: Super. I am not sure how to type this piece. Someone up North probably can. I would call it a Stemmed and Serrated Archaic Blade made from some killer Hixton.

Price: $125


Quartz Point - #2-7

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

Provenance: Wallace Dibble Collection Logansport, Indiana.

Condition: Super. This is a superior piece made from Quartz. I have owned very few quartz points with this degree of workmanship. The base is concave, and heavily ground to a flat edge. The sides of the stem are also ground smooth. Where is this piece from? I don't know. It wasn't labeled. Maybe someone will recognize this type of quartz, and match it to the type. Obviously, it is translucent, especially the base.

Price: $125


Lightning Bolt Stemmed - #2-8

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

Provenance: Ohio.

Condition: Good. This piece runs thick, but the material makes up for it. A huge lightning line runs all the way across the piece, and the colors on this piece of Coschocton are incredible. I lean more towards Early Adena than Ashtabula, but some may disagree.

Price: $50 - RESERVED


Mystery Point - #2-9

Size: 2 3/8" L x 13/16" W.

Provenance: Wally Dibble Collection Logansport, Indiana.

Condition: Excellent. Missing the tip of the tip. I feel like a wrestling announcer with this one: "From parts unknown, materials unknown, and type unknown... The Mystery Point" Basally thinned with light grinding on the sides. Concave base, and well made.

Price: $75 - RESERVED

Ohio Kirk - #2-10

Size: 2 1/4" L x 1 9/16" W.

Provenance: Northern Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. This piece has use wear, and a few dings. Straight blade edges, and fantastic early flaking. Jet Black and waxy Mercer Chert.

Price: $50 - RESERVED
