Early Dalton - #5-1

Size: 3 7/8" long x 1 1/4" W.

Provenance: Found near the Cache River in Jackson County, Arkansas. X: Vandiver, John Stoffel. Jackson Galleries COA dated 6/20/2000.

Condition: Excellent. I would put this piece in the Early Dalton family. Jackson COA calls this piece a "Wheeler".



Hardin - #5-2

Size: 4 3/16" long x 2 1/16" wide.

Provenance: Howard County, Missouri. "Dave" is written on the tag, but I can't decipher the last name. Anyone know? There is also a silver paint on it that reads "962"

Condition: Excellent. This isn't your typical Burlington. I am not sure what the material is, but will describe it. Greenish blue with some elements that remind me of Hornstone. Nice big point with some edge dings.

Price: $75


Huge Stemmed Point - Kay Blade? - #5-3

Size: Two eyelashes shy of 6" long x 2" wide.

Provenance: Arkansas. X: Kevin Cordeiro. COA by Bill Jackson dated 5/20/2003 (Pre-Alex).

Condition: Excellent. Bill Jackson types this piece as a "Kampsville", which I am not familiar with. I think Noel Justice used this type in one of his books. I would type the piece as a Kay Blade, but then again, it feels more Archaic. This piece is huge, and the whole thing is twisted to the left. I believe the old tag lists a price of $22.50. I wonder when the piece traded for that price? A big giant of a flint.



Giant Dalton - #5-4

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

Provenance: Found in Boone County, Missouri. X: David Detar Newbert. X: Charles Shewey. Comes with a certificate of ownership from the Shewey collection dated 5/12/2003

Condition: Excellent. A large sized Dalton from 2 very well known collections. I love the top side, backside is stained and leaves something to be desired. There is an impact fracture that runs down from the tip. Look at the last picture to see it. You do not see the fracture when viewed from the top.

Price: $350


Osceola - #5-5

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

Provenance: Pike County, Illinois. X: Chalmer Lynch, Marion Knott, Chuck Weisbecker, Hank Lambert. John Berner COA dated 9/28/1997

Condition: Super. This is a large big side notch of a well known and collected form.



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.
