Intrusive Mound Platform Pipe - #9-1

Size: 1 7/8" long x 1 3/16 W x 1 1/2" tall.

Provenance: Found in Pickaway County, Ohio. Floyd Ritter purchased this pipe from known Indiana collector Gary Litherland in 1978. Ritter #P62.

Condition: Museum. I snuck this one in to see if anyone was paying attention. There have probably been less than 20 authentic pipestone platform pipes sell in the last 10 years. Of course, thousands of misrepresented modern examples have sold with shiny new COA's. Bowl is unique with a three pointed design that looks very much like a baby bird with an open mouth waiting to be fed from the side. Everything is right about this example, and when you compare it to the junk being produced along I-75 in Ohio, you won't ever even be tempted by the fakes again.

Price: $Inquire through email or phone.


Mini 3/4 Groove Axe - Restored - #9-2

Size: 2 1/2" long x 1 3/4" tall

Provenance: Ohio. Cliff Bauer Collection.

Condition: Restored. Really nice material and form. Restoration is crude, easy to see, and covers about 1/4 of the poll end.



Hematite Celt - #9-3

Size: 1 7/8" tall x 7/8" wide.

Provenance: Ohio. Bauer Collection.

Condition: Excellent. Not quite perfect, but a nice hematite example.



Green Celt - #9-4

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

Provenance: Ohio. Bauer collection.

Condition: Good. Nice color and form. Bit is either chewed up or in the process of being resharpened when lost.

Price: $20


Miami River Axe - #9-5

Size: 4 5/16" tall x 3 3/16" wide.

Provenance: Found in Meigs County, Ohio by R.C. Webb. I purchased from Eric Wagner, who had a COA produced by Bill Jackson #22768. If you want the COA, let me know.

Condition: Super. Rare and collectible form. Resharpened at a steep angle like many of this type.

Price: $400


Green Celt - #9-6

Size: 3 9/16" long x 1 1/2" wide

Provenance: Ohio. Mcqueen collection.

Condition: Super. Bit is perfect. Body of the piece is not perfectly symmetrical with a pecked and pointed poll. Sides are faceted. 90% + high polish.



Limonite Celt - #9-7

Size: 5 1/8" long x 2 1/8" wide.

Provenance: Ohio. McQueen collection.

Condition: Good. Limonite is a lower Iron content hematite that sometimes produces some incredible color. This piece has some chips on the bit, but still a solid example for the money.


Grooved Celt - #9-8

Size: 6" long x 2 1/8"" wide.

Provenance: Found in Pennsylvania. Collected and signed by Earl Townsend. There is a Jackson COA dated from 2005 that will be included if the buyer wants it.

Condition: Good. The bit on this piece is beat up some, and there is a small chip off the poll. This form is extremely rare. I have seen less than 10 examples, and all were very similar. Both sides about 2/3 of the way to the poll are nicely grooved. Big discount b/c of the damage.


Celt - #9-9

Size: 4 9/16" long x 2 7/16" wide.

Provenance: Ohio. McQueen collection.

Condition: Super. This celt may qualify as a "creased" example. There is a little groove near the bit on one side, which many collectors theorize was put on a tool to determine which way to re-haft after resharpening. The term "creased" grew from this theory. This example has a crease, but it is larger than most I see. I am sure it is a purposeful feature. I have learned that the rust spots are from Iron that is inside the stone. It leaches out when exposed to water over time. There is a spot of oil that ended up on the piece. You can see it on the bottom picture, and it could come off with some TLC.

Price: $40


Grooved Adze - #9-10

Size: 4 7/8" L x 2 1/4" W

Provenance: Found in Madison County, Illinois by Don Moga 5/11/1996 on his farm. Purchased by Brad Mullen of Nitro, Illinois from Mr. Moga. I purchased from Brad several years ago, and have had the piece in my personal collection ever since. My personal catalog records included with the piece.

Condition: Super. Some battering marks on the poll that have been polished over from further use. A few surface plow nicks. This is an incredibly rare stone tool form. Being made of salt-n-pepper granite makes it even rarer and more visibly pleasing. High polish.
