Flint Ridge Thebes - Bauer Collection - #1-1

Size: 2 1/4" L x 1 5/16" W.

Provenance: Cliff Bauer Collection. Catalog details included.

Condition: Super. Highly translucent Flint Ridge. So rare if you recognize great flint.



Flint Ridge Meadowood - #1-2

Size: 3 7/16" long x 1 15/16" wide.

Provenance: Northern Ohio.

Condition: Excellent. I feel good about the typology, but there is a part of me that thinks this is Hopewell. Material is outstanding Flint Ridge with that no brainer patina everyone should learn. Entire piece has a great curve to it. One spot on backside that the maker had a hard time working with. A big piece of Ridge with some translucency.



Harpeth River - #1-3

Size: 3 3/8" x 15/16" wide

Provenance: Tennessee Valley water find.

Condition: Excellent. Tip is ever so slightly nipped. This piece is thin, extremely well flaked, colorful, and has a great looking water patina. I know very little about this Early Archaic type, but I am sure this is a desirable example.

Price: $200 - Reserved.


Harpeth River #2 - #1-4

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

Provenance: Tennessee Valley.

Condition: Super. Large lance style pig sticker. That is my scientific jargon. Fine edge flaking. Rare "blood" base, rather than the more common "blood" tip. Don't pay attention to this description, too much coffee this morning. Obviously, a very nice Early Archaic type.

Price: $300


Greenbriar Dalton - #1-5

Size: 2 7/8" long x 1 1/16" wide.

Provenance: Ballard County, Kentucky.

Condition: Super. As nice as you will see for the type. Highly beveled into a twist with toothy little serrations along the entire cutting edges. Only flaw is a very small area working towards the tip where the maker had a hard spot that was difficult to knap out. I would call it a very minor stack. Piece would rate an easy 9.



Polished Dalton Drill - #1-6

Size: 2 1/4" L x 15/16" W.

Provenance: Found in IIlinois.

Condition: Special. Dalton's are cool. Dalton drills are cooler. A polished Dalton drill is the coolest. "Polished" points are known, but extremely rare, in the Midwest. Whether these items were talismans, picked up by later cultures and cherished, or produced for an unknown reason, we don't know. I have only owned two over the years, and this is your chance to buy them.

Price: $250


Polished Hopewell - #1-7

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

Provenance: I do not remember the find location, but I remember the story. I purchased from Steve Dowell around 10 years ago. A friend of Steve's found this piece in a field, not in water.

Condition: Special. In case you are blind, this piece is broken. It is also polished. Note that it was polished after it was broken. Note this was probably a 6"+ piece, and the form lends itself to being ceremonial Hopewell. Questions have always persisted about why a flint piece was polished. In this case, I feel confident that this item was an important talisman. Whether it was carried by a Hopewell man, or found by a later culture, I don't know. I am sure it is rare and important.

Price: $200


Eastern Lance - #1-8




Price: Sorry. Sold privately to a friend prior to update.


Fractured Base Decatur - #1-9

Size: 2 5/16" L x 1 3/8" W

Provenance: Found in Ohio County, Indiana.

Condition: Super. This piece named a product. A long time ago, someone wrote "Fax" base on it in India ink. Then the inventor of the modern "fax" machine saw this writing, and decided to name the product. Now everyone knows about the fax machine, but hopefully, you don't have to use them anymore. Besides this story, we have a a very nice serrated fractured base Decatur in a great two toned Indiana Hornstone.



Unfractured base Decatur - #1-10

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

Provenance: Williams County, Ohio.

Condition: Super. Muted Flint Ridge colors in the patina everyone should learn. Glacier blue, purple, gold scheme that was popular in the Early Archaic. Unfractured are rarer than fractured. Super piece.
