Sedalia - #5-1

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

Provenance: Found in Johnson County, Missouri. Found by Steve Hunter in Knob Noster in a Creek. COA paper from Tom Davis dated 5/2000 G-9.

Condition: Super. Very little to pick on with this piece. I will even give it credit for being made better than most Sedalia's. Excellent length.



Mozarkite Sedalia - #5-2

Size: 5 1/4" long x 1 7/16" wide.

Provenance: Missouri.

Condition: Super. Only flaw is near base on one side. It is a quartz inclusion that the maker could not knap around. As a result, the symmetry is slightly off, but it remains undamaged, and how it was constructed. I am pretty certain this is Mozarkite, but maybe Jeff City. Someone who knows, please let me know. Big, well made, and has the material bonus that most don't.

Price: $200


North Blade - #5-3

Size: 4" long x 2 9/16" wide.

Provenance: Found St. Louis County, Missouri. The labeling was most likely done by Ben Thompson, but I am unable to confirm this connection.

Condition: Good. There are a few decent nicks along the edges. Material is Burlington, and has a very cool pink patchwork that runs along a vein in the flint.

Price: $40


Dovetail? - #5-4

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

Provenance: In the Missouri frame from the collection I purchased, but no find location given.

Condition: Excellent. You would think I could type a dovetail by now. I am just not sure. Notches are a bit more open than normal, and base is big and not terribly ground. However, flaking is dovetail, and highly beveled. Not sure of material either, but it makes the piece.

Price: $40


Knobbed Hardin - #5-5

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

Provenance: Jackson County, Illinois.

Condition: Excellent. Finely made with flaking to median ridge on both sides. Need an Illinois guy to tell me material. Don't think it is Burlington.

Price: $100


Neuberger - #5-6

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

Provenance: Arkansas

Condition: Super. Hoping someone can help me with the material, and maybe the type. Outside of my area. Could the material be Reed Springs Chert? This is a great cornernotch form with excellent size.



Dalton - #5-7

Size: 4 5/16" long x 1 1/8" wide

Provenance: Found in Boone County, Missouri. X: Jack Roberts, Scott Davidson, Tom Litton, Steve Lee. COA by Roy Motley dated 9/2001, and COA by Greg Perino dated 4/2001.

Condition: Super. Tip of the tip nipped off. Classic and showy Mozarkite flint. Excellent patina and minerals. Incredible flaking that makes Dalton's what they are. Large flute one side.



Something Bad Ass Paleo - #5-8

Size: 3 3/16" long x 15/16" wide.

Provenance: Calloway County, Missouri. X: Ken Shreckengost.

Condition: Super. Breckenridge Dalton form. Just a really great type. Reminds me of Cumberland/Beaver Lake. Great serrations. Fluted on both sides. Listed as Crescent Quarry Chert on a COA.



Ovoid Blade - #5-9

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

Provenance: Don't have find location, but feel confident it is Illinois/Missouri. There is a sticker on back that says #3653 that reminds me of Irving Daughtery's tag.

Condition: Super. Early blade form. Tip is rounded off a bit prehistorically. No distracting damage. Giant sized.



Thin Dovetail - #5-10

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

Provenance: Find location unknown, but feel it is a Illinois/Missouri piece by style and material.

Condition: Super. This piece is extremely thin for a dovetail, but still flaked to a median ridge on both faces. Material is a very interesting question. The color that you see in the picture is basically a "frosted" patina like you see on Knife River and Hixton. When backlit, this thing just glows. I think it is Crescent Quarry, and had at least one good opinion that I am right.



Dovetail - #5-11

Size: 2 11/16" L x 1 5/16" W

Provenance: Pike County, Illinois.

Condition: Excellent. Just a very solid dovetail.



Greenbriar - #5-12

Size: 2 9/16" L x 1 1/4" W

Provenance: No find location.

Condition: Good. Base and tip nick. Extremely thin and well made.
