Etley? Drill - #4-1

Size: 1 13/16" long x 1" W.

Provenance: Barry County, Missouri.

Condition: Killer. This is a fantastic little drill. I put the ? after Etley, b/c it seems too well made for Etley Culture. More like the great Intrusive Mound pieces we see in Ohio. Fine as Playboy Centerfold.

Price: $75


Archaic Drill - #4-2

Size: 2 11/16" long x 13/16" wide.

Provenance: Indiana. X: Floyd D. Schryver. I purchased this collection out of Arvada, CO in 2011 after Floyd died at the age of 98.

Condition: Super. Nice, well made drill of Hornstone without damage. Not sure how to classify form, but feel good calling it Archaic.

Price: $50


Flint Ridge Thebes Drill - #4-3

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

Provenance: Found in Delaware County, Ohio. X: Rob Dills.

Condition: Super. High Grade Flint Ridge with all the minerals you need. Note the width of the base above. This was a huge piece at one time. If you want a piece of flint that was guaranteed to have been used for a long time, this is it. Wonder how many animals it butchered?



Notch Base Dovetail Drill - #4-4

Size: 2 5/8" L x 7/8" W.

Provenance: Breckenridge County, Kentucky.

Condition: Super. Only possible flaw is that the base is not symmetrical. Killer flaking. Notch base dovetail.



Thebes Drill - #4-5

Size: 2 13/16" long x 1 1/16" wide.

Provenance: Found in Wood County, Ohio near Hoytville. From the famous Archie Diller collection, and sold at his auction on 7/21/1990 as lot #108. Pictured in auction flier, which will be provided to the buyer.

Condition: Super. A great Early Archaic drill made from jet black Coshocton. Superior documentation.



Fort Ancient Drill - #4-6

Size: 1 15.5/16" long x 5/8" wide.

Provenance: Found around Munfordville, KY by a member of the West family in the 1960's.

Condition: Super. Great size and condition for this piece. Tip is long, thin, and well made. I class it as a drill, but could be an elongated tip triangle.

Price: $40


Dovetail Drill - #4-7

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

Provenance: Found in Todd County, Kentucky. X: David Zinkie, Todd Walterspaugh.

Condition: Excellent. Heavily ground base. Great two tone material.

Flint Ridge Thebes Meuser Collection - #4-8


Size: 2 1/4" Long x 1 1/4" wide.

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

Notes: Super. My, what a deeply concave base you have. Color and minerals are superior. Can you imagine the flint collection that passed through Dr. Meuser's hands?




Plum Run? Thebes - #4-9


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

Provenance: Ohio. John J. Grenawalt collection.

Condition: Excellent. Heavily re-sharpened and beveled. I think this is Plum Run, but never been great with id'ing this rare material.



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.





Bird Dropping Mercer Thebes - #4-11


Size: 2 3/8" long x 1 5/16" wide.

Provenance: Ohio. John J. Grenawalt collection.

Condition: Good. Some ear and base damage, but great material and form.



Group of 4 Thebes Bevels - #4-12


Size: Upper Left 2 1/8" L.

Provenance: Ohio. John J. Grenawalt collection.

Condition: Excellent. Nice group that you will be particularly happy with the lower left piece. It looks like nothing in this picture, but it is a great Thebes blunt with fantastic material . All are valid flints. Top right is also a dandy for a group lot.



Group of 4 Thebes Bevels - #4-13


Size: Upper Right is 3 1/16" long.

Provenance: Ohio. John J. Grenawalt collection

Condition: Good. Some damage, but look at what you are getting. A large flint ridge example, a mini E-notch with great "E's", a variegated Coshocton E-notch....
