Decatur - #8-1

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

Provenance: Reported as Gibson County, Indiana. X: Vanderver.

Condition: Super. Incredible serrations, and great subtle color changes in this material. A small base nick. Grade would be a 9.

Price: $400

 

Roger Tucker Hopewell Cache - #8-2

Size: The Snyder's points average in the 4" range.

Provenance: Found by Roger Tucker in 1967. Randolph County, Indiana. ADDITIONAL PROVENANCE: A complete article about this cache is published in Central States Volume 50 #4. Special Thanks to Paul S. for finding this article.

Condtion: Cache. Cache's always bring more questions than answers. Obviously this cache was killed purposefully. Material variance is very interesting with a mix of Burlington, Hornstone, and Mercer. Here is where the questions bring the Jon Dickinson crazy man answers. Note that the style is very much Western Hopewell Snyder's. Not the Ohio Hopewell forms where Snyder's don't show up often. But the location is just over the Ohio border in an area where I would expect more of an Ohio Hopewell influence. Now the monkey wrench of Burlington traveling pretty far East for the normal distribution, and Ohio material being used for Snyder's. What we have here is a tribute that shows direct evidence of Ohio Hopewell, and Illinois Hopewell co-mingling. I don't even want to think about the blades or the large Hornstone Hoe.

Price: $650. Seems really cheap for something of this importance.

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

Provenance: Found by Howard Lutz in Warrick County, Indiana in 1982.

Pinetree - #8-4

Condition: Super. A classic Pinetree with all the Archaic flaking one would expect. Re-sharpening has reduced the blade width. Ears and base are perfect. Call it a Christmas tree.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

Indiana Green Stash - #8-6

Size: Average just over 2".

Provenance: All found in Central Indiana by the same finder. X: Hardwick.

Condition: Excellent. 22 examples of Indiana Green blades. Wonder how many years it took to find all these?

Price: $250

 

Triangle Cache - #8-7

Size: #47 and #48 are largest and exactly 2 7/16" L each.

Provenance: A few years ago I bought a little chunk of Tom Razmus' collection. This group was in the collection in it's own frame. It is my understanding that this is a cache, possibly found by Razmus. I do feel good about centering the find location to South East Illinois / South West Indiana.

Condition: Museum. I just noticed in the pictures that the tip of #46 is hidden in both pics. Let me tell you the tip is perfect, and these points all qualify as perfect. Is the material Cobden? The darker inclusions are almost purple, but these points have an overall patina that I feel has masked the true color of the flint. I have no idea why I am letting this go. Superior find of some of the best triangles you will ever see.

Price: $SOLD THANK YOU>

 

Killer Triangle - #8-8

Size: 2 3/8" L x 5/8" W.

Size: 1 3/8" L x 15/16" W.

Provenance: Found by Wallace Dibble in Cass County, Indiana pre 1975. Wabash River Drainage.
