Item: Type: Pine Tree Provenance: Price
MBAR33 A nice, medium-sized Fort Payne Chert Pine Tree Arrowhead which is thoroughly Recovered from 750.00
flaked on both faces in a basically random knapping pattern and showing the typical Livingston County, KY
pine-tree secondary pressure flaking to it's edges which give this one the typical Pine
Tree serrated edges. The very tip has a slight, small ancient "clip", but other than
that, this one is "all there" as it was anciently made and used.

Item: Type: Northern Side-Notched - Wolf Eared Variety Provenance: Price
MBAR34 A very nice, medium-sized mahogany and black duo-flow obsidian Northern Side- Recovered from 650.00
Notched Arrowhead of the Wolf-Eared variety. It's thoroughly, if not intricately Lake County, Oregon
knapped on both faces. It appears to have a very small ancient flea bite to the tip
(which might just have been the way it was made) and an ancient diagonal nick to the
tip of one tang. Quite an attractive piece made from a most interesting host material

Item: Type: Serrated Dalton Provenance: Price
AR99 A VERY exceptional and quite large (for type) white burlington chert "Classic" Dalton, which has more Recovered from 500.00
desirable traits than just your run of the mill Dalton. It's totally flaked on both faces with VERY intricate Adams County, Illinois
serrated edges. This one must have been created right on the cusp of the transition from the Paleo period to
the Archaic period because it has Paleo fluting on both faces, Paleo grinding on the entire basal area and it
has the right hand beveling introduced during the Archaic period. Quite a nice "Era Cross-over" artifact.
The very tip has what appears to be a more recent nick, but other than that, this beauty is "all there" as it
was anciently made and used, and it's been in my own personal collection for 10 years.

Item: Type: Lerma Provenance: Price
AR100 A VERY outstanding and quite attractive tan and light brown Edward's Plateau chert Lerma Recovered from the 250.00
Knife Blade which is thoroughly flake on both faces, although in a most random pattern "Wilson County Sandpit Site"
fashion. It shows ancient usage wear as well as ancient re-sharpenings, but it's essentially "all in Wilson County, Texas
there" as it was anciently made and used. It displays the pleasant surface weathering traits as
most artifacts which came from this most famous site and it has light basal grinding.

Item: Type: Johnson Provenance: Price
RFAR4 A very interesting, slightly crude black basalt Johnson Dart Point. The flaking Recovered from Dismal River in Thomas County, Nebraska 75.00
patterns are somewhat on the "cursory/crude" side and the piece shows slight
river polish. It has an ancient clip to it's tip, but is still a good, old artifact.

Item: Type: Kings Provenance: Price
RFAR6 A nice mottled tan sugar quartz Kings Arrowhead which has crude flaking Recovered from Perkins County, Nebraska 65.00

Item: Type: Dovetail Provenance: Price
RFAR9 A grayish-tan chert Dovetail Knife blade which has seen better days. It has good Recovered from Stark County, Ohio 165.00

RFAR12 A fairly thin mottled gray chert Abaslo Dart point which is crudely Recovered from Texas (NFI) 125.00

Item: Type: Mount Albion Provenance: Price
RFAR13 A deep brown agate Mount Albion Arrowhead, created by an experienced Recovered from Cheyenne, Wyoming 65.00

Item: Type: Pelican Lake Knife Blade Provenance: Price
RFAR10 A VERY HUGE orangish-tan chert Pelican Lake Knife which shows slight Recovered from Saguache County, Colorado 275.00
ancient nicking to the tangs and basal stem which might have been anciently
re-worked giving it an atypical form for the type. Still quite an impressive artifact

Item: Type: Plainview Provenance: Price
RFAR11 A fairly small (for type) light gray chert Plainview Dart point which is fairly well Recovered from Burns, Wyoming 150.00

of one edge and a very slight nibble to the tip, is completely intact.
Era: Plains Paleo period - 9,500 to 11,250 years old

Item: Type: Samantha Dart Provenance: Price
RFAR14 A most exceptional orange chert/agate Samantha Dart Point which is well flaked on both faces by an Found by Max Leistrit 275.00
advanced knapper who must have had some difficulty with working the host material because it has a in Lakeside, Nebraska
stack on side A just to the left of the vertical centerline and about 1/2" above the hafting mark (dark
"dots" in photos 1 and 4) as well as a couple of minor "steps" on side B. (photo 5) It has a shallow v-cut
from one edge about 1/2" above the hafting line which was most likely caused by a "soft-spot" in the host
material during the knapping process. Quite an outstanding artifact, for the rare color alone.
Era: Late Archaic Period - 1,500 to 2,200 years old

Item: Type: Holland Provenance: Price
RFAR15 A cream-colored chert Holland Dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by an experienced Recovered from the Snake River 250.00
knapper. It has an ancient nick to one corner of the base, but is otherwise "all there" as it was anciently in Cherry County, Nebraska
made and used. Quite a nice little piece of ancient history, and well worth the asking price.

Item: Type: Hardin Provenance: Price
RFAR16 A SPECTACULAR and HUGE Burlington chert Hardin Blade which (contrary to the Stermer Recovered from Jackson County, Missouri 1800.00
COA) I would call a "First-Stage" (unaltered) example. This beauty is VERY thin, for it's size and
the flaking patterns are fairly thorough on both faces with good, intricate secondary pressure flaking
patterns to it's edges. The basal edge is properly ground. Just an OUTSTANDING artifact worthy
of being the centerpiece in any collection. Personally I would give this one a G10+ Grade.

Item: Type: Dalton Knife Form Provenance: Price
RFAR17 A mottled off-white and light gray variegated chert Dalton Knife form which is well flaked on Recovered near the town of Joplin 125.00
both faces by a beginner knapper. It shows substantial left-handed beveling from numerous in Jasper County, Missouri
ancient re-sharpenings. An interesting piece which is almost reduced to a drill form

Item: Type: Pelican Lake Provenance: Price
RFAR18 A fairly large light gray sugar quartz Pelican Lake Knife form which is thoroughly Recovered from the Snake River 175.00
flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper. The flaking patterns are slightly in Cherry County, Nebraska
subdued owing to the nature of the host material, which is most difficult to work
with. It has slight ancient chipping to both barbs as well as to one corner of the
base, but is still an exceptional piece made from a rare material.

Item: Type: Graham Cave Provenance: Price
BEAR1 A fairly nice and well worked light gray chert Graham Cave Dart point which is well flaked on Recovered from Missouri (NFI) 65.00
both faces and shows signs of basal percussion fluting on both sides. One auricle is asymmetrical, 35.00
but this appears to be the way it was anciently made, or re-formed in ancient times.

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
BEAR3 A very well made semi-translucent, opalescent obsidian "Hump-backed" Cascade Knife Found by Carrol Howe 250.00
blade which was made on a flake and which retains substantial curvature from the original on Nightfire Island 95.00

Item: Type: Stemmed Archaic Knife Provenance: Price
BEAR4 A fairly long light tan-gray chert Archaic Knife blade which is co-eval with the Sedalia types found Recovered from 275.00

BEAR7 A long and slender tan and off-white chert Nebo Hill Knife form which is quite Recovered from Kentucky (NFI) 150.00

Item: Type: Sedalia Provenance: Price
BEAR8 A very slender, somewhat under-sized (for type) lavender, pink and off-white heat treated Recovered from 65.00
burlington chert Sedalia Knife blade. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces, although not in the Ozarks in Missouri 40.00

Item: Type: Sedalia Provenance: Price
BEAR9 A fairly broad off-white and light blue-gray chert Sedalia Knife Blade which is well Found near Sedalia in 175.00

flaked on both faces, although not in any particularly impressive pattern and it has an
unfortunate, very slight ancient nick to the tip as well as to one corner of the base. It has
good basal grinding, which would put this piece in the earlier date range for this type

Item: Type: Sedalia Provenance: Price
BEAR10 A very fascinating blue-gray chert Sedalia Dart point/Knife blade which has very good and thorough Recovered from 300.00
transverse flaking patterns on side A. Side B's flaking patterns are much more crude and appear to have the Ozarks in Missouri 245.00
been "rushed". It has an impact fracture from the tip on side B which would indicate that it was used as a
Dart point and most likely doubled as a Knife blade as well. This one is highly unusual from the standpoint
that pretty near all Sedalia's were made from lighter colored, mostly white, burlington chert, but this one
goes against the norm, having been made from what I consider to be a much more attractive host material.

Item: Type: Sedalia Provenance: Price
BEAR11 A fairly large (for type) off-white and beige burlington chert Sedalia Knife Blade. Found near Sedalia 185.00
This one is thoroughly flaked on both faces, although not in any particularly in Pettis County, Missouri 145.00
impressive pattern. It has a very slight ancient nick to the tip as well as to one
corner of the base and it also has a slight semi-circular dig to one edge near the
tip. (Right side in photo 1) Still a respectable artifact in it's own right

Item: Type: Sedalia Provenance: Price
BEAR12 A fairly large (for type) and attractive very light blue-gray and tan chert Sedalia Found near Sedalia 300.00
Knife Blade which is well flaked on both faces. It has a very slight ancient nick in Pettis County, Missouri 175.00
to the tip, but is otherwise "all there" with the minor exception of 2 usage wear
marks along the left edge in photo 1. It also has a slight semi-circular "dig mark"
to the same edge, closer to the tip where crystal inclusions weathered away. (It
still has small crystals showing inside of this area) Still quite an attractive artifact

Item: Type: Alachua Provenance: Price
RPAR126 A quite attractive mottled light gray and white flint Alachua dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by an Recovered from Alabama (NFI) 45.00
experienced knapper. This one shows traces of ancient damage to it's barbs and it also shows obvious re-working
which reduced it's original size, but any damaged areas were anciently re-worked so they're no longer obvious.

Item: Type: Decatur Provenance: Price
RPAR127 A very nice sized mottled tan, off-white and orange chert "Snapped base" Decatur Hafted Knife Blade/Dart Point Recovered from Morgan County, Alabama 150.00
which is fairly thin and well flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper. I can't really comment about the
"snapped base"... sometimes this was intentional in ancient times, and sometimes not. The only major flaw this one
has is a moderate knick to one edge near the basal hafting area. (left side in photo 2) Overall, not a bad piece.

Item: Type: Piedmont Provenance: Price
RPAR128 A mottled medium blue-gray chert Piedmont Dart point which is fairly well flaked on both Recovered from New York (NFI) 50.00

shaped depression on side B, just above the horizontal centerline (left side in photo 4) but
is otherwise "all there" as it was anciently made and used.

Item: Type: Cobbs Knife Provenance: Price
RPAR129 An outstanding off-white chalcedony Cobbs Knife blade which very well might be a Recovered from the Arkansas River 95.00
pre-form used as a knife in the interim. It's fairly well flaked on both faces, although below Kerr Dam in Oklahoma
not in any particularly impressive pattern, which leads me to believe that it was left in
it's preform stage. At any rate, it's "all there" as it was anciently made and used.

Item: Type: Turin Provenance: Price
RPAR130 A semi-translucent chalcedony Turin Arrowhead which show traits of HEAVY river polish. The Recovered from Louisiana (NFI) 50.00

Item: Type: Dalton Provenance: Price
RPAR131 A most attractive, glossy tan flint Dalton Dart point which is exceptionally well made with thorough flaking patterns on both faces Recovered from 120.00
in the old "Paleo style". It has good basal grinding and appears to have been anciently worked-down from a larger sample. It's SE Oklahoma (NFI)
only flaw is a substantial "flat spot" on one edge at the horizontal centerline. (photos 3, 6 and 7) This was most likely the result of
a left-over (un-worked) section during an ancient re-sharpening phase. Don't ask me why, it would have been a simple matter to
"touch-up" this section with pressure flaking, but I'm not the one who created and used this beauty, so who knows?

Item: Type: Calf Creek Provenance: Price
RPAR132 A very attractive light orange and tan chert Calf Creek Dart point which displays an interesting Recovered from the Canadian River 125.00
combination of flaking techniques. It retains the original first stage percussion flaking patterns in it's center east of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
on both faces, with an abundance of secondary pressure flaking patterns all around it's edges and a
pressure flaked "flute" on one side from the base. The opposite side (side A, photo 2) displays what I
term "cleavage flaking" where the bottom of the base starts thin, and gradually gains thickness as it angles
upwards to effect a nice, wedge-like binding to an atlatl shaft. It has a nick to one barb (photos 6 & 7)
but is otherwise "all there" as it was anciently made and used. Quite an attractive, ancient piece.

Item: Type: Uvalde Provenance: Price
RPAR133 Oooo... now this one's NICE! A nice (I know, I already said that) medium-sized, medium Recovered from 200.00
brown flint Uvalde Dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by an experienced Uvalde Co., TX (NFI) 9/1 ON-HOLD rh
knapper. It has good basal grinding, which puts it at an earlier era for the broad age-range for
this type and it also displays traits of the beginning of right hand beveling. A worthy piece.

Item: Type: Holland Provenance: Price
RPAR134 A nice, glossy and quite thin light blue-gray flint Holland Dart point which was expertly made in Recovered from 75.00
the old "Paleo Style". It has thorough, flaking patterns on both faces starting from the edges to the Haskel County, OK
vertical centerline. It has good basal grinding and multiple pressure flaked flutes from it's base.
Quite an interesting piece, which unfortunately has a substantial nick to one corner of the base.
Era: Early Archaic Period - 7,500 to 10,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Dalton Provenance: Price
RPAR135 A fairly lengthy (for type) mottled gray and off-white chert Dalton Dart point which is well flaked on Recovered from 125.00
both faces to a median ridge. It has good basal grinding and an unfortunate "shear" to the tip of one Eufaula Lake, Oklahoma
basal tang. Still quite a "meaty" piece, which was most likely used as a hafted knife blade.

Item: Type: Brier Creek Provenance: Price
RPAR121 A fairly long, very thick and robust blue-black flint Brier Creek hafted Knife blade Recovered from South Carolina (NFI) 275.00
which is thoroughly flaked on both faces in a random pattern by an experienced
ancient knapper. This one is illustrated in Greg Perino's book "Selected Preforms,
Points and Knives of the North American Indians" Vol. 1 - pg. 48. This work-horse
of a blade is essentially "all there" as it was anciently made and used and has good
basal grinding all around the stem's edges. Quite an attractive piece, actually.
Era: Middle Archaic Period - 3,500 to 4,500 years old Ex: Greg Perino
