Tennessee Valley Page - 7/10/18

Benton Family - #2-1

Size: 4 7/8" L x 1 5/8" W.

Provenance: TN Valley.

Condition: Super. I am not extremely happy with how the pictures turned out with this piece. It is a favorite with a pentagonal shaped re-sharpening pattern. Best guess is that the piece falls into the Benton Bottleneck family. The base and stem are ground. Pressure flaking along the edges is superior. Material is high grade with a great green/orange/tan color scheme. I think this is a Bangor Chert, but don't hold me to this call. Lower third of piece is the outer cortex of the flint.

Price: $350

Adena - #2-2

Size: 3 13/16" L x 1 3/16" W

Provenance: TN River drainage. Marshall County, Kentucky. X: Fred Dory.

Condition: Super. One ear isn't quite perfect, but close. Attractive orange/tan Fort Payne? with a few quartz veins. Thin and sharp.

Price: $75. Reserved.

Elk River - #2-3

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

Provenance: Livingston County, Kentucky. X: David Farris.

Condition: Excellent. Thick in places and one stack just above the sticker. Characteristic diagnol flaking present throughout the piece. At 5", a large piece.

Price: $250. Reserved.


Buzzard Roost Creek - #2-4

Size: 4 7/8" L x 1 9/16" W.

Provenance: Tennessee Valley.

Condition: Excellent. One ear is clipped. Nice striped Dover. Characteristic Buzzard Roost base. Big piece, and a collectible type.

Price: $250. Reserved.


Stemmed Point - #2-5

Size: 5" L x 1 3/16" W.

Provenance: Tennessee Valley.

Condition: Excellent. Edge flaking leads me to believe this is an Archaic piece. Maybe in the Benton family? What I do know is that it is a huge point, and should sell quickly.



Dalton - #2-6

Size: 3" L x 1 11/16" W.

Provenance: Florence County, Alabama.

Condition: Excellent. Some dings, but overall still great condition. High grade flint that I think is called Bangor that is somewhat hingy. It almost has qualities of Sonora and Hornstone.



Dalton - Nuckolls - #2-7

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

Provenance: Stewart County, Tennessee. Tom Davis COA dated 9/4/2002 Grade 6.

Condition: Excellent. I just can't seem to agree with Davis grades. This one I feel is too low. I think a solid 7. In my defense, I have stated times on this site where I thought his grade was too high. Flaking didn't picture well, so buyer will be pleasantly surprised with how nice this piece is.



Mini Greenbriar / Dalton Nuckolls - #2-8

Size: 1 3/8" long x 11/16 " wide.

Provenance: Unknown. In Frame with TN Valley pieces

Condition: Good. Just a really cool giblet that can squeeze into any type frame or color group.

Price: $5


Elk River - #2-9

Size: 5 3/16" long x 1 1/4" wide.

Provenance: Tennessee. Tom Davis COA dated 1/13/2006 Grade 7.

Condition: Super. The condition of this piece comes down to the base. Was it made the way it is, or is there damage. I have looked at it many times, and I am convinced the piece was made this way. I really need to take a better picture of the flaking b/c there is some of the best oblique transverse flakes you will ever see on a piece. I measured many of them at 1" or more. Time out. Going to take that picture. See bottom picture. This is such a great type. Wish I lived in the area where they come from.


Nailed this picture:


Plevna Dovetail - #2-10

Size: 3 5/8" long x 1 3/8" wide.

Provenance: TN Valley frame.

Condition: Super. This piece is highly beveled. I tried to show this in the second photo. I left the old price tag on the piece, b/c somebody might recognize the writing on it for further provenance. Material is patinated burnt orange, and I am almost certain this is a water patina.


Turkey Tail Harrison - #2-11

Size: 3 11/16" long x 1 1/2" W.

Provenance: In TN Valley frame.

Condition: Excellent. Thin with fine flaking. Both tip and base show a little bit of cortex, which is a feature often seen in turkey's. I would call this material (note the striped nature of it) Kentucky Blue Hornstone. It is high grade and even translucent along the edges.



Greenbriar - #2-12

Size: 2 3/4" L x 1 1/8" W

Provenance: Found in Leighton, Alabama by "PHS".

Condition: Perfect. This is a killer point. If you needed to read that to know, then it might not be for you. Finely serrated, and wonderful in all ways.



Serrated Pickwick - #2-13

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

Provenance: From a frame of TN Valley pieces.

Condition: Excellent. Don't see this type serrated often. A real no brainer flint in this offering.

Price: $40. Reserved.


Stillwell - #2-14
