Finely Serrated Dalton - #5-1

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

Provenance: Found Lincoln County, Missouri. From the Charles Shewey collection. There is a document signed by Mrs. Nodena Shewey and Robert Harrison dated 5/12/03 certifying that the piece was in the Shewey collection. Document included.

Condition: Perfect. Finely made with a defined twist to the whole piece. The serrations are so small and fine that you almost need to feel them. Base and sides are heavily ground.

Price: $400


Hardin - #5-2

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

Provenance: Montgomery County, Missouri. Comes with a Greg Perino COA dated 1/25/99 made out to Jim Crawford. States that piece is X: Doug Brown.

Condition: Super. A few very minor side nicks. Material is a tan/white Burlington with excellent mineralization throughout the piece. Shows evidence of prehistoric resharpening, and maybe evidence that these points were sometimes hafted well above the ears. Note how the blade edges swoop inward about a half inch above the word "Montgomery". This is the area of reshapening, and the piece exhibits none below that area. Obviously, Hardin's are highly collectible.

Price: $250


Arkansas Dalton - #5-3

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

Provenance: This point was found in Arkansas, and I have had it long enough that I don't remember anything else.

Condition: Super. Classic in all ways for Dalton (serrations, basal thinning, bevel..), just in a small package.



Dalton - #5-4

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

Provenance: Collected by noted early Ohio collector Dick Johnson. His signature "DJ" mark is on the piece. Purchased in the 1960's by Harley Glenn from Mr. Johnson.

Condition: Super. Deeply concave base. Material is Burlington with evidence of heating. I have heard over the years that Dalton's are never heat treated. I believe there is a very plausible explanation for why this one was. Note the circular fire pop in the above picture. Using the fire pop as evidence, I feel this point ended up in a fire after it was made. Maybe in the belly of a beast?

Price: $75


White Hardin - #5-5

Size: 4 1/8" long x 1 11/16" wide.

Provenance: Jackson County, Illinois.

Condition: Good. Heavily ground base, and highly beveled. A small bit of glue remains on point after I removed 95% of it. Blade edges show nicks. Very similar resharpening pattern to the Montgomery County piece listed above.



Fluted Lance - #5-6

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

Provenance: Found by R. Battinau in Southern Missouri.

Condition: Excellent. Note the thinning flute in top picture. Very well made, which pictures don't capture. Consider this one a gift to the site.



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.

Price: $20


Flint Adze - #5-8

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

Provenance: Missouri.

Condition: Good. These tools were work horses, and used for long periods of time. This one is no different. A good type example.



Mehlville - #5-9

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

Provenance: Don't have find location, but feel confident it is Illinois/Missouri. Labeled "0169".

Condition: Excellent. I like the color streak through it, and it is very well made. I also enjoy the big open notches.



Beat Up Paleo Point - #5-10

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

Provenance: I found this piece on the back of a shelf recently. I have no recollection of where I acquired it. Figures that I saved it b/c it is Paleo. I tried to decipher the very old tag, and can't. It lists a county and state. Also gives a date of discovery, and the name "Dean". The new owner should be able to figure it out.

Condition: Good. Clearly Paleo and authentic. Clearly seen better days. Cheapest complete Paleo piece you will ever see on this site.



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.

Price: $100
