Dalton - #5-1

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

Provenance: Found in Dunklin County, MO. X: Bob Nesius.

Condition: Excellent. Most Dalton's are White Burlington. This is not most Daltons. Beautiful Crowley's Ridge Cobble in yellow, orange, and red. Serrated with a nice bevel.

Price: $125. Reserved


Hardin Bevel - #5-2

Size: 3 3/16" long x 1 9/16" wide.

Provenance: I do not have a find location on this piece.

Condition: Excellent. Highly beveled. Tip has some damage, but I am certain this tip was never pointy. Really great orange material (Paoli?). I don't expect a colored Hardin will last long.

Price: $125 - Reserved.


Cobden Hardin - #5-3

Size: 2 9/16" long x 1 3/8" wide.

Provenance: Wayne County, Illinois.

Condition: Excellent. Nice material for a Hardin. Desirable type.



Agate Basin - #5-4

Size: 4 7/16" long x 1 3/16" wide.

Provenance: Missouri. I was contacted by a friend on the website that this point is X: Fred Eiserman, and pictured on Page 96 in Who's Who #10.

Condition: Super. Very little superficial use wear. Superior mineralization. White, tan, and purple/pink Burlington. Basal and side grinding present. Pretty much a killer point.

Price: $500 - Reserved.


Hatten Knife - #5-5

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

Provenance: I am sure it is Missouri, and think the tag says Perry County.

Condition: Excellent. I have a confession: I used Overstreet to pick this typology. Never heard of this type before, but this example looks very much like the picture in the book. The interesting "drop tine" basal ear is described for the type. Well made and balanced. Grinding present on base and stem.



Glossy Side Notch - #5-6

Size: 2 3/8" long x 13/16" wide.

Provenance: Illinois.

Condition: Excellent. Somewhat stained, but very well made, and twisted. Must be about the top quality of Burlington, b/c it is "glossy"



Snyder - #5-7

Size: 2 7/16/16" long x 1 13/16" wide

Provenance: Found by R. Battinau in Southern Missouri.

Condition: Excellent. Good color. I think this is Jeff City Chert. Correct me if you know otherwise.



Dickson - #5-8

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

Provenance: Saline County, Arkansas.

Condition: Excellent. Quality point. Red splotch is a little fabric stuck to old glue. Would come off with warm water.



Dickson - #5-9

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

Provenance: Don't have find location, but feel confident it is Illinois/Missouri.

Condition: Super. A large example that has been resharpened multiple times. Heat treated Burlington.



Blade - #5-10

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

Provenance: Illinois.

Condition: Super. I am thinking this piece falls into the Archaic, but not quite ready to call it Cobbs. Nicely made, and complete.



Flint Spade with restoration - #5-11

Size: 11 1/8" L x 4 5/8" W

Provenance: labeled Honey's Lake, Missouri. Found by Jeff and can't decipher the last name. I looked up the location, and it is in Dent County, Missouri.

Condition: Restored. A large, and finely bit polished flint spade made from Mill Creek Chert. The bit is completely intact, and highly polished. The first area of restoration is near the bit, and is about the size of a nickel cut in half. Second area is similar sized on the opposite side. Largest area of restore is near the pole, and is the size of a complete nickel with a half dime sized area very close to it. I am not a big restoration guy, but I did not remove this b/c I felt it was in character with the piece. Priced to sell quickly.



Dalton - #5-12

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

Provenance: No find location known.

Condition: Super. Overall, this piece was pretty much used to exhausation. Does that make it worn out? I don't think so. I love pieces that show a long life. I guess I understand the whole "it's first stage" brag, but I like my flints to show a purpose. Strong flute on one side. Clearly Illinois/Missouri due to form and material.
