Fractured Base Decatur - #4-1

Size: 2 1/4" long x 1 9/16".

Provenance: Indiana. Mark Bach collection.

Condition: Tip is broken and glued. More than likely, this piece was dropped since being found. Good news is that tip is glued back on.

Price: $20


Fractured Base Decatur - #4-2

Size: 2 15/16" long x 1 5/8" wide.

Provenance: Medina County, Ohio. I am almost sure is says Chippewa Lake. It does have a date listed in the 1950's, but I can't read last digit. Was told by previous owner that a John Berner was with the piece, but it was lost.

Condition: Super. I would call this Flint Ridge, just frosted over patina. No real damage to speak of. I had multiple requests to sell some of my Decaturs, so jump quick.

Price: $225


Boyles Chert Paleo - #4-3

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

Provenance: Dudley Bravard collection. I purchased this piece 6/23/2007 as lot #1219 at the Ron Helman "Three Exceptional Collections" sale.

Condition: Super. Very close to perfect. Some translucency. Exceptional color in Boyles Chert. Very little grinding, but I feel strongly it is Paleo. So did Ron Helman, and it is listed as Paleo in the catalog.



Carter Cave Hopewell - #4-4

Size: 3 3/4" L x 1 5/8" W.

Provenance: Ohio. Collected by Hugh Schiller. I have lost the remainder of the history.

Condition: Good. Great material with size. Piece shows wear along the edges. Owned this one for many years, and just re-discovered it.

Price: $60


Fine Flint Ridge E-Notch Blunt - #4-5

Size: 1 11/16" long x 1 1/2" wide.

Provenance: Blue ink is almost completely gone, but almost certain this is a Copeland piece with blue ink #328/FL

Condition: Killer. I did not get a good pic of the flaking pattern on the blunted area. It is fantastic and fine. Material is of the finest and highest grade of waxy Flint Ridge available in prehistory. Subtle shades of blue, purple, and gold. One of, if not the best blunts, I have owned.



E-Notch Blunt - #4-6

Size: 1 5/8" long x 1 7/16" wide.

Provenance: Richland County, Ohio. Mark Bach collection.

Condition: Super. High grade translucent Coshocton. Superior in all manner.



Blood Tip Bifurcate - #4-7

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

Provenance: Northern Kentucky.

Condition: Excellent. Small bit of glue on one side. Could be removed with warm water. I didn't notice it until I saw the pictures I took. Everyone loves bifurcates, and I can't help myself by calling it a blood tip. Still remember an old timer who only collected pieces with a red tip. "They made them that way to simulate blood and a good hunt" I will say this, his frame was really cool.

Price: $15


Translucent Bifurcate - #4-8

Size: 1 3/8" Long x 15/16" wide.

Provenance: X: Bill Jones. 95% sure he told me it came from Tennessee.

Notes: Super. Nicely serrated with excellent workmanship, and superior translucent material.

Price: $30. Reserved


Stillwell - #4-9

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

Provenance: Indiana. Prof. ER Honeywell collection. Original Honeywell frame pictured below.

Condition: Excellent. Superior Early Archaic edge flaking. Nice size. A few small use dings. Overall, a very nice point.



E-Notch - #4-10

Size: 2 1/4" long x 1 3/8" wide.

Provenance: Mark Bach collection. Indiana.

Condition: Excellent. Tip is knicked. Classic form, and highly collectible.



Bi-Point - #4-11

Size: 2 3/8" long x 5/8" wide.

Provenance: Mishawaka, Indiana. Collected by Merlin Berberich before WWI. One of the last pieces from this wonderful collection I purchased 10-12 years ago.

Indiana Green Kirk - #4-12

Size: 1 5/8" L x 15/16" Wide.

Provenance: Mishawaka, Indiana. Collected by Merlin Berberich before WWI. One of the last pieces from this wonderful collection I purchased 10-12 years ago.

Condition: Excellent. A little guy, but I have seen many small kirks made of Green. Highly ground base. Collectible material.



Copena - #4-13

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

Provenance: Found in Metcalfe County, Kentucky on Glass Road by Robert Fritz on 2/6/1973. I purchased his collection many years ago, and still have his catalog. Will include page that describes the Copena find.

Condition: Excellent. The story of Robert Fritz was an interesting one in my collection buying career. I met him in Louisville, and he told me it was the first time he left his town (Cave City, KY) in 20 years. He found this point in the very back of a private property cave in a firepit. Does have a little coating on it that Robert applied.
