Stringtown Lance - #4-1

Size: 4 1/8" long x 1 3/16".

Provenance: Central Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Shows some use wear along blade edges. Has classic basal spur on one side for Stringtown. Base is made with a single strike across the basal end. Two toned Delaware Chert. Superior minerals. Rare Ohio Paleo type.



Big Slough - #4-2

Size: 2 7/8" long x 1 11/16" wide.

Provenance: Kentucky.

Condition: Excellent. I think this is Sonora, but where does Sonora start, and Kentucky Blue end? Flint has a high silicate count, and a bit hingy. Big Slough was my best typology answer. The blue really sticks out in a frame.



Boyles Chert Stemmed - #4-3

Size: 2 7/8" long x 1 3/16" wide.

Provenance: Kentucky.

Condition: Exellent. Solid piece made from a nice grade of Boyles Chert.

Carter Cave Hopewell - #4-4

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

Provenance: Ohio. Collected by Hugh Schiller. I have lost the remainder of the history.

Condition: Good. Great material with size. Piece shows wear along the edges. Owned this one for many years, and just re-discovered it.

Indiana Point - #4-5

Size: 4 15/16" long x 1 1/8" wide.

Provenance: Indiana.

Condition: Super. This is the second time I have owned this piece. Sold it 10 years ago, and just got it back. You have to think this is a dovetail, but I was never sure. Could be a micronotch. All I really know is that the piece is large, in fine condition, and old.

Price: $150


Bifurcate - #4-7

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

Provenance: Northern Kentucky.

Condition: Excellent. Serrated and heavily re-sharpened. I would put it in the MacCorkle family.



Meadowood - #4-8

Size: 3 9/16" Long x 1 3/4" wide.

Provenance: Barren County, Kentucky. Tom Davis COA Grade 9 Dated 12/17/1999.

Notes: Excellent. In fairness to the times I questioned a Davis grade for being too low, I feel this one is too high. I would grade 7-7.5. Tom calls material Boyles Chert. Big and rarer Late Archaic type normally found in Ohio.

Copena - #4-13

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

Provenance: Found in Metcalfe County, Kentucky on Glass Road by Robert Fritz on 2/6/1973. I purchased his collection many years ago, and still have his catalog. Will include page that describes the Copena find.

Condition: Excellent. The story of Robert Fritz was an interesting one in my collection buying career. I met him in Louisville, and he told me it was the first time he left his town (Cave City, KY) in 20 years. He found this point in the very back of a private property cave in a firepit. Does have a little coating on it that Robert applied.
