Mini-Clovis - #5-1

Size: 1 9/16" L x 7/8" W.

Provenance: Found in Michigan. X: Brent Heath.

Condition: Excellent. Old India Ink that I cannot decipher, but I do have the find state from my records. Don't know what material is, but it brings up an interesting scenario. It looks like it could be heat treated, but Paleo shouldn't be heat treated. So, it is either a colorful flint I don't know, or it somehow got heated. Maybe cooked in an animal. There is no doubt it is authentic, and the pics alone should illustrate this.

Sonora Early Archaic - #5-2

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

Provenance: Unlabeled point from the Wallace Dibble collection.

Condition: Excellent. Don't know how to type it, but it is early. Great purple Sonora. Base flares outward like a Hardin, but I don't want to call it that. Early flaking.

Price: $35 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 
Paleo Crescent Knife - #5-3

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

Provenance: Unlabeled point from the Wallace Dibble collection. Obviously, a Pacific North West type.

Condition: Perfect. Mostly unifaced on the back side. Clear Agate like material. I know these are rare and collectible.

Price: $100

 

Striped Adena - #5-4

Size: 2 3/4" L x 1 7/16" W.

Provenance: Found in Wood County, Ohio. X: R. Pfund.

Condition: Excellent. Obviously a very beautiful flint, but what is it? My gut says striped Coshocton with some very rare colors. Great piece for anyone's color frame.

Flint Ridge Chalcedony Dovetail - #5-5

Size: 3 1/2" L x 1 7/16" W.

Provenance: Licking County, Ohio. Went through Converse Auctions many moons ago, but I don't have the date. X: Jim Goodge.

Condition: Excellent. A classic Flint Ridge dovetail. I hear all the time "Flint Ridge is so hard to tell authenticity b/c it doesn't mineralize." Folks, the people telling you this have never handled authentic Flint Ridge. They are stuck with fakes that they assume are old b/c a COA or some yahoo told them it was old. Authentic Flint Ridge is one of the easiest, if not the easiest material to judge authenticity. Want to take a guess if this one is old from the pics?

Price: $500

 

Blue Flint Ridge Adena - #5-6

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

Provenance: Found in Darke County, Ohio. Jim Beckman purchased this from Dave Root many years ago. Pictured in Lar Hothem's book Flint Ridge Artifacts on Page 185. Copy of page will be supplied to the buyer.

Condition: Super. Large size, and stunning material. Maybe more than any piece I can think of, this Adena absolutely glows in natural sun light. I can't explain it, and can't get a picture of it. I sold this once before and was able to get it back. Don't know why I am selling it again. Maybe I just want others to enjoy it.

Sandy Dovetail - #5-7

Size: 2 3/8" L x 7/8" W.

Provenance: Central Kentucky. X: Klan

Condition: Excellent. Everything about this piece is dovetail except the angle of the notches. It is side notched like a Big Sandy. Thus, it is a Sandy Dovetail. Tremendous water patina. Some large percussion flakes removed in a parallel fashion up the the blade edge.

Price: $50 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 

Mini - Dovetail - #5-8

Size: 1 5/8" L x 7/8" W.

Provenance: Ohio. I don't know whose tag is on the point.

Condition: Excellent. The existence of these mini doves is well known throughout the collecting world, but a reason for them is unknown. I also want to note that some of these started much larger, and were whittled down through re-sharpening. This one does show a bevel indicating some re-sharpening, but the base to blade size ratio tells me it was always small. Snow white translucent Flint Ridge. An Early Archaic child's knife?

Table Rock - #5-9

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

Provenance: Found in the great State of Wisconsin.

Condition: Excellent. Long base, great form out of a high grade Burlington that was heat treated to a light pink with great waxiness. Table Rock's rank among my favorite of all flints.

Price: $40 - RESERVED FOR A BUYER

 

Kirk - #5-10

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

Provenance: Found in Wayne County, Ohio.

Condition: Super. Creek stained material that I bet is Flint Ridge underneath the patina. Perfect little form. This is a very classy piece in hand. Great color.

Flint Ridge Dovetail - #5-12

Size: 3 3/8" L x 1 7/16" W.

Flint Ridge Leaf Blade - #5-13

Size: 2 7/8" L x 1 5/8" W.

Provenance: Ohio. X: Keith Hardwick.

Condition: Super. Great Flint Ridge material with a few large quartz inclusions. Adena form that was many times found in large caches. I have no information this was from a cache, but it fits the form.

Price: $150
