Notch Base Dovetail - #7-1

Size: 3 7/8" L x 2 1/8" W.

Provenance: Jackson County, Ohio. X: K. Saunders, Bob Converse. Also has a Jackson and Perino COA both dated 1998.

Condition: Super. Classic dove with desirable notch base. First stage, no resharpenings. It needs to be noted that both Jackson and Perino state the material is Flint Ridge.

Price: Email for details.


Dovetail - #7-2

Size: 3 5/8" long.

Provenance: Found near Booneville in Warrick County, IN by a girl named "Mary Christmas". Not kidding! Letter from famed collector Chalmer Lynch describing this. After Mary found the piece, she sold it to a shoe repair man, who then traded it to Lynch for a Knoblock Bannerstone Book. X: Pete Gallic. Pictured in Legends of Prehistoric Art Vol 2 under Jeff Steiner. Also has a Perino COA. I received an email from someone who actually knew Mary Christmas in the 70's. Said she was cool.

Condition: Super. Beveled and serrated beauty. I know you are not supposed to buy the story, but what a great story this one has with the finder.

Price: $1250


Ohio Clovis - #7-3

Size: 3 13/16" L. Almost 4"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Provenance: Mercer County, Ohio. Collected by Ben Thompson #2249 and Roger Peterson.

Condition: Excellent. Tip and auricle nick. Double fluted one side, single fluted other side. This one should fall into the rarer Hazel style Clovis category. In today's collecting world, a no brainer old clovis just doesn't come around. Material is highly patinated, but could be Delaware Chert.

Price: $Email for details.


Something - #7-4

Size: 3 1/2" long x 1 7/16" wide.

Provenance: Found in Lucas County, Ohio near Sylvania by R. Weick.

Condition: Excellent. This piece came with it's label, but I have to wonder if it is incorrect. I am not sure what this piece represents from an Ohio form and typology perspective. The material also seems to be Burlington to me. Regardless of the mystery, it is obviously authentic.

Price: $40


Flint Ridge Dovetail - #7-5

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

Provenance: Clark County, Ohio.

Condition: Broken/glued. If I had a guess, this piece was dropped long after it was found. The drop nipped the tip and broke off a small piece, which is glued back on. Shame, b/c this is a killer piece with exceptional everything. A bit of modern damage that can be seen below "Ohio" in the bottom photo.



Paleo Lance - #7-6

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

Provenance: Found in Clark County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. One side nick. Super thin, and well flaked. On top of those features, this is Breathitt Chert. Great Paleo Lance.

Price: $150


Clovis - #7-7

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

Provenance: Found in Miami County, Ohio.

Condition: Good. Condition issue is a big impact fracture on the tip. I want to imagine this happening against the rib of a Short Faced Bear. Flutes are not particularly prominent. Not talking this piece down, it is a no brainer authentic Clovis. How many of those do you see?



Coffin Shaped Paleo Lance - #7-8

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

Provenance: Auglaize County, Ohio.

Condition: Flake broken off and glued back. A fingernail shaped piece was broken off this piece and glued back in. It is very hard to see, and I didn't notice it for a while. You can kinda see it by looking at the lower picture below the word OHIO on the sticker. This is a killer little flint. If you follow the site, this is probably my favorite Ohio flint form. Green patinated Mercer!



Late Paleo - #7-9

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

Provenance: Wyandot County, Ohio.

Condition: Super. This is the type that has many names within Ohio. Unfluted-fluted point (Converse), Plano, Transitional..... As you can see, great condition. I can't tell what the flint is, maybe Delaware underneath the patina.



Flint Ridge Blade - #7-11

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

Provenance: Found in Amanda, Fairfield County, Ohio.

Condition: Perfect. These are called "cache" blades typically, but that name is a bit misleading. The term "cache" refers to items that were stowed away and not used. This blade shows heavy use, in fact the sides are not only dull, but polished from use. Don't know why I didn't do a back lit photo. When backlit, there is a quartz vein running across the flint that is not seen in standard view.



Flint Ridge Heavy Duty - #7-12

Size: 2" L x 1" W.

Provenance: Found in Rockbridge, Good Hope Township, Hocking County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. I believe this one was resharpened many times, and served a great utility for the prehistoric owner. Thick with a diamond cross section. Flint Ridge is so rare on Heavy Duties.



Big Sandy - Ohio Side Notch - #7-13

Size: 1 13/16" L x 1 1/8" W.

Provenance: Found in Morgantown, Benton Township, Pike County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Ground base Big Sandy type. I think this is Delaware Chert, but not sure.



Purple Ohio Side Notch - #7-14

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

Provenance: Found in Amanda, Fairfield County, Ohio.

Condition: Killer. Really, it is perfect, just didn't give it designation. Color is much closer to purple in hand. Might have hit it with too much flash. Highly skilled maker who built it thick with a twist to the entire blade showing great workmanship throughout.



Triangles - In a group, but priced individually - #7-15

Size: Red one far right is 2 1/4" L.

Provenance: Varies. Inquire to me about these.

Condition: All are either perfect or very close to perfect. Many times when I put up a group, people think the pieces don't stand on their own. Not true, these examples are all in the upper couple percent of triangles.



Kirk - #7-16

Size: 2 7/8" L x 1 3/8" W.

Provenance: One of the only unlabeled points on the boards. Obviously, Ohio Mercer Flint.

Condition: Super. Black flint guys should eat up this dandy.



Intrusive Mound - #7-17

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

Provenance: Found at the Rock Mill Site, Lancaster, Fairfield County, Ohio. This is a very cool provenance, with Rock Mill being the oldest grist mill in the state of Ohio, built in the 1700's. Rock Mill is located on the cliffs overlooking the upper falls of the Hocking River.

Condition: Good. Edges show wear and little nicks. I will steal a phrase that I hear about it being "potato chip" thin. This applies very well in this case, b/c the piece has a bit of an overall twist. Large sized for an Intrusive piece, should be typed in the Knight Island family.



Stillwell - #7-18

Size: 2 5/8" L x 1 5/16" W.

Provenance: Stark County, Ohio.

Condition: Super. Tip isn't quit complete, but very close. Notches are a bit bigger than typical on a Stillwell, but the overall shape and serrations lead me to make the Stillwell call. High grade flint, not sure what to call it. Some translucency.



Triple Notch - #7-19

Size: 1 11/16" L x 13/16" W.

Provenance: Amanda, Fairfield County, Ohio.

Condition: Super. Sure looks like one of the Cahokia tri-notches, but I am unaware of this type being found in Ohio. Material is from Ohio. I don't know, but think this one will garner some serious interest.

Price: $75 RESERVED


Pentagonal - #7-20

Size: 1 5/16" L x 1 1/8" W.

Provenance: Found on Cherry Ridge, which is located in New Plymouth, Hocking County, Ohio.

Condition: Good. Solid little Pentagonal.



E-notch - #7-21

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

Provenance: Stark County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Class expanding notches with great serrations. Looks to be a local chert, maybe Delaware. Thins out towards a great needle tip.



Flint Ridge Adena - #7-22

Size: 2 5/16" L x 1 1/8" W.

Provenance: Amanda, Fairfield County, Ohio.

Condition: Good. Flint Ridge translucent example.
