John Grenawalt collection Thebes Cluster Pieces. Grenawalt was a longtime Ohio Arch Society member. He was very active during the late 60's through 70's. Collected flints from Copeland and Mueser. Here is his 1973 ASO member card. Sidenote that I find interesting: Jan Sorgenfri was the treasurer of Ohio Arch during that era.

Thebes Bevel - #4-1

Size: 2 1/2" long x 1 7/8" W.

Provenance: Medina County, Ohio. Collected and labeled by Dr. Gordon Meuser.

Condition: Super. Some translucency. I think it is Flint Ridge. Wide form with a huge base. Bevels are steep and tightly formed. Classic Ohio piece.

Price: $SOLD>THANK YOU>

 

Ohio "Dog-Leg" Bevel - #4-2

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

Provenance: Ohio. Grenawalt Collection.

Condition: Excellent. One ear is slightly clipped. Clipped ear would have never been same length as other ear. Jet black Mercer on this Ohio type. Note the concave base, and upturning notches that created the dog-leg term. Serrated and still deadly.

Price: $50

 

Copeland Collection "Ace of Spades" Thebes Bevel - #4-3

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

Provenance: Found in Franklin County, Ohio along Big Walnut Creek on Refugee Road. Labeled by Dr. Stanley Copeland.

Condition: Excellent. A little damage to one side of the base, and one ear on same side. This form is an Ohio sub-type, and I think they look like the ace of spades.

Price: $SOLD>THANK YOU>

 

Clipped Wing Thebes - #4-4

Size: 2 13/16" L x 1 3/8" W.

Concave Base Mini-Thebes - #4-6

Size: 1 7/8" long x 1 1/4" wide.

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

Gnarly/Killer Black Bevel - #4-10

Size: 2 5/8" long x 1 3/8" wide.

Provenance: Ohio. John J. Grenawalt.

Condition: Killer. One of the better bevelings you will ever see combined with one of the pointiest tips I have seen on the type. Ears are not symmetrical, but I don't think they are broken. Small toothy little serrations. Piece like this is a classic to illustrate the tough world of the Early Archaic. Buyer will be super happy with this piece.
