Creased Top, Porphyry Celt - One of the best - #9-1

Size: 6 1/4" L x 2 7/8" W

Provenance: Found in Missouri. Earliest record of it is in the very old Morningstar collection in Ohio. X: David Shirley. Pictured in GIRS/Prehistoric American 1992, #4, Page 11. Copy of article supplied to buyer. I also have the original photograph used in the journal, and David Shirley's personal collection catalog page.

Condition: Museum. Ok folks, this one literally has it all. In the very top of the celt class. Let's take notice. It is a flared bit, which is rare. It is made from porphyry, which is rare. It has excellent size, which is rare. It is flawless, which is rare. It has a creased top (see pics), which is stupidly rare, and the subject of the GIRS article it is the star of. Don't care to ramble on any more.

Price: $SOLD> THANK YOU>

 

Michigan Barbed Axe- #9-2

Size: 5 1/2" L x 3 1/4 " T.

Provenance: Found on the Fell Farm North of Six Lakes, Montcalm County, Michigan. #1157 in the famous Gleval Fincham collection.

Condition: Super. One of the rarest and most highly collectible axe forms. No damage to speak of. Rarely offered for sale. Check some recent auction results to see how this is underpriced.

Price: $600

 

3/4 Groove Axe - #9-3

Size: 5" long x 2 3/4" T

Provenance: Found by Wallace Dibble in Cass County, Indiana in the 1960's.

Condition: Excellent. A few plow scrapes, and the bit shows signs of salvaged damage. Overall, a big jump over field grade. Nicely fluted bottom adds to the piece.

Price: $150 - RESERVED

 

Celt - #9-4

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

Provenance: Found by Wallace Dibble in Cass County, Indiana in the 1960's.

Condition: Excellent. Some bit chatter. I love the color on this piece. Speckled green granite. Also, a big fan of the examples with the extra polish on the bit. Don't let anyone tell you this is a sign of modern rework. It is not.

Price: $75- RESERVED

 

Fine Adze - #9-5

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

Provenance: Found by Wallace Dibble in Cass County, Indiana in the 1960's.

Condition:Super. Bit is perfect. Very minor poll ding. Still a 10. Fabulous high grade almost straw granite material that is highly polished into an extremely fine Woodland period wood working tool. Color difference you see on the back is from some old tape that was on the piece.

Price: $100- RESERVED

 

Celt - #9-6

Size: 4 1/4" L x 1 7/8" T.

Provenance: Found by Wallace Dibble in Cass County, Indiana in the 1960's.

Condition: Super. These pictures stink. Hardly even recognize the piece in hand v. pictures. Good news for the buyer is that you will be getting a much better piece than you think. the top picture makes it look broken. It is not. Front bit polish with a great pink inclusion. Slightly flared bit. Put your trust in me on this one being much nicer in person.

Price: $75- RESERVED

 

Pestle - #9-7

Size: 5" T x 2 1/4" W.

Provenance: Ross County, Ohio.

Condition: Good. High polish, but it is dinged up pretty good. Handle is great. Bottom must have made 1000's of meals.

Price: $50

7/8 Grooved Axe - #9-8

Size: 3 1/4" Long x 2 1/4" T

Provenance: Darke County, Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. Flattened bit like a 3/4 groove hammer, but I feel it is a true grooved axe. Nice material and polish, just lacking the fine lines.

Price: $50- RESERVED

Ultra Fine Slate Adze - #9-9

Size: 5 1/4" Long x 1 3/4" wide

Provenance: Found in Central Indiana.

Condition: Perfect. A killer adze. I think it is slate b/c of the banding, but it is much harder than typical slate. Probably why the maker chose the stone. Insanely sharp and nearly flawless bit. Great banding. Top quality relic.

Price: $150- RESERVED
