Hodge - Podge

 

Killer Novaculite Blunt - #2-1

Size: 1 11/16" L x 1 11/16" W. How often do you see a piece that is the same length and width?

Provenance: Arkansas. X: Wally Dibble.

Condition: Killer. This is a just a great artifact, and the type that really excited me. High grade Novaculite that you can practically read through. Blunted off, extremely well made. Unreal long ears. I guess this is a Smith type, I think the notches are too open to be Calf Creek. Not types I am well versed with, but I know this is something I really like.

Price: $100 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 

Hopewell - #2-2

Size: 3 5/16" L x 1 5/16" W

Provenance: Found by Wally Dibble in Cass County, Indiana.

Condition: Excellent. This one used to be much bigger. It must have been a great tool, b/c the size of the base and notches suggest it was much bigger.

Price: $75. - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 

Sharpened Dickson - #2-3

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

Provenance: St. Clair County, Missouri

Condition: Super. Thought I sold this whole collection of fine Dicksons from the 1930's collection. Found this one that I must have separated b/c it was the best example. Nicely heat treated Burlington.

Price: $60 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 

Cotton Rock Hopewell - #2-4

Size: 2 9/16" L x 1 1/8" W

Provenance: Unknown piece in the Dibble collection. These are known from Missouri area.

Condition: Super. I am told that this point started out as a more traditional looking flint type. Apparently, this material is known to leach over many years in the ground. It is now light as a feather, and I doubt it would have much use to perform a task. I find it to be super cool, and very shaky on selling it at all. As everyone knows, I am all about the conversation pieces, and this is a great conversation. If it doesn't sell quick, I am pulling it.

Price: $75

 

Jasper Point - #2-5

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

Provenance: I have had this piece for probably 20 years. I can't remember where I received it. Safe to say it is South East.

Condition: Excellent. Material is an 11. Looks like a piece of candy, but don't eat it. I am going to sell for the same amount as the old price tag that I never took off. The lack of find location is yet another lesson on why you label points when you get them.

Avon Flint Kirk - #2-6

Price: 2 5/8" L x 1 3/4" W.

Provenance: Southern Illinois.

Condition: Excellent. Great Illinois material that reminds me of a hybrid between Flint Ridge and Boyles Chert.

Price: $125 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 

Harrodsburg Decatur - #2-7

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

Provenance: Wallace Dibble Collection Logansport, Indiana.

Condition: Excellent. I struggled with typology on this piece for a while, and then I realized it was a Decatur. Un-Fractured base. Serrated. Everyone loves Harrodsburg fossil chert. Interesting stripe down the middle of higher grade material.

Price: $100 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 

Intrusive Mound? - #2-8

Size: 1 7/8" L x 1 1/16" W.

Provenance: Unknown. Was in the Dibble collection.

Condition: Super. This thing is fine, so fine, like a vintage wine. Partially uni-faced, thin as a cracker. Extremely pointy needle tip.

Knife River Uniface Tool - #2-9

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

Provenance: Found in Michigan. Knife River will travel to Michigan more than you think.

Condition: Super. 100% uni-faced on the back side. Percussion bulb present on the base that I typically relate to the earliest forms of uniface tools. Flaking is also outstanding, and early. This is juxtaposed by the shape being very Adena-ish. End of the day, I don't want to make a strong call on the age of this piece. The whole piece has the signature haze patina known on good Knife River pieces. A wonderful, great relic.

Price: $250 - RESERVED

Concave Base Thebes - #2-10

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

Provenance: Cass County, Indiana. Wally Dibble.

Condition: Excellent. I can't ID this material, but I have heard the Indiana boys call it "muck" flint. What is "muck" flint? I understand it is a group of materials that sat in the bogs, and wet ground mostly in Northern Indiana. It tends to patinate orange, and is almost impossible to identify what it started out as. Great color, and form. Small tip ding, but remember that tip was made rounded to begin with.
