38 Piece Cache - #7-1

Size: Pieces average in the 2-3" range. Refer to scale, or ask me questions about individual sizes

Provenance: Found in the Licking River Valley, Nicholas County, Kentucky. All the blades are labeled with find location and a number except for piece in lower right. It was with cache when I received it. I have owned this cache for at least 10 years.

Condition: Good. These blades are all preforms, and I really don't even want to guess as to their cultural affiliation. Many show unifacial characteristics. All found together in a cache. This cache is very nice for many reasons, but my favorite aspect is that a wide diversity of materials are represented. The majority material is Fort Payne, and you can match multiple pieces to the same piece of flint. Represented also in the cache is Sonora, Carter Cave, Boyles, and Breathitt. Throw in a few unidentified local cherts, and you have something very special. It is very unusual for a cache to contain so many different materials, and this group is direct evidence of extensive trade routes in prehistory. For one prehistoric flint knapper to have access to so many different materials from such a large geographic area, is important to archaeologically. Someone needs to write this up for a journal. Time to let it go.



North Carolina Collection - 28 Pieces - #7-2

Size: Upper Left is 2 1/4" Long.

Provenance: Came with a collection that included a decent number of North Carolina pieces. I can't guarantee find location is correct.

Condition: Excellent. Collection with a single purchase. Note a couple that look Paleo, and the great little Hardaway.

Price: $150


Watt's Cave Collection Found By Ernie and Dorothy Good - #7-3

Size: Drill in Upper left is 3 1/4" long.

Provenance: These were all found by noted Ohio old timers Ernie and Dorothy Good. Watt's Cave is located in Todd County, Kentucky, and these finds were made 1950-1962. Watt's Cave is heavily documented, and I am almost sure the drill is pictured in a 1950's Ohio Arch. There is a good chance multiple pieces in the frame are pictured.

Condition: Historic. This is a great group with perfect provenance.

Price: $300


Group of South Eastern Triangles - I think 52 total - #7-4

Condition: Excellent. Many great examples. A collection with one purchase.
