Item: Type: Stanfield Blade Provenance: Price
RPAR193 A fairly large and quite thin off-white, light gray and pink burlington chert Stanfield Recovered from 600.00
Blade which is thoroughly flaked on both faces and which is very well made. It has a Brown County, Illinois
slight ancient spider bite to the very tip and has a single small indentation to one edge
at the horizontal centerline, caused by a crystal inclusion weathering away. (photos 6
& 8) A superior piece which would make a great centerpiece to any collection Ex: Marion Dickson

Item: Type: Gary Provenance: Price
RPAR137 A very attractive, quite thin semi-translucent chalcedony Gary Arrowhead which is well Found by Greg Perino in 60.00
flaked on both faces. It's slightly asymmetrical from slight ancient chipping to one barb McCurtain County, Oklahoma
as well as to one corner of the basal stem. Still a great piece in an attractive material

Item: Type: Marshall Provenance: Price
RPAR139 A very nice light brown flint Marshall Arrowhead which is quite thin and well worked with Recovered along the Sulphur 150.00
thorough flaking on both faces. It has slight ancient chipping to the very tip as well as to one corner River in Lamar County, Texas
of the basal stem, but is mostly "all there" as it was anciently made and used. A good looking piece

Item: Type: Pelican Lake Provenance: Price
RPAR140 A fairly thin, glossy blue-gray and light tan chert Pelican Lake Arrowhead which is quite Recovered from below Kaw Dam 150.00
thin and well made with thorough flaking patterns to both faces. It's form is slightly in Kay County, Oklahoma
asymmetrical, although this appear to be just the way it was made. An attractive piece

Item: Type: Little River Provenance: Price
RPAR141 A fairly large and broad (for type) blue, tan and pink chert Little River Knife Recovered on the Coy Doan farm 125.00
Form/Dart Point which shows rough flaking to both faces with additional indirect in McCurtain County, Oklahoma
percussion flaking patterns mostly to side A. The craftsmanship is intermediate
level and it has a slight diagonal nibble to the tip. An interesting and sturdy piece

Item: Type: San Patrice Provenance: Price
RPAR142 A fairly small (for type) highly unusual (for the host material) red and brown petrified wood San Recovered on the Sulphur River 120.00
Patrice Dart point which is crudely flaked on both faces, owing to the difficulty of "knapping" layered in Lamar County, Texas
petrified wood host material. It's rustic appearance only adds to it's archaic visual appeal, in my
opinion, and it's interesting to note, for as difficult as petrified wood material is to knap, the ancient
knapper did manage to create very nice "hafting stops" on both faces, just above the base. Not as
"pretty" as some San Patrice points we've handled, but definitely one of the more interesting examples
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 8,000 to 10,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Meserve Provenance: Price
RPAR143 An exceptional medium gray chert Meserve Knife form which is thoroughly Recovered from the Canadian River, 250.00
flaked on both faces by an advanced ancient knapper and which has secondary 50 miles east of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
pressure flaked right hand beveled edges on both sides. It has good paleo-style
basal grinding and is as perfect as the last day that it was used.

Item: Type: Johnson Provenance: Price
RPAR144 An unusual (for the material) brown grainy crystalline quartzite Johnson Dart Found on the "Coy Doan" Farm 65.00
point which is very rustic in appearance with percussion flaking to both faces in McCurtain County, Oklahoma
coupled with secondary pressure flaking restricted to it's edges. It appears to
have lost the tips to it's barbs in ancient times and also has a slight ancient nick to
the tip. Interesting in it's rustic appearance

Item: Type: Dalton Provenance: Price
RPAR145 A fairly nice dark gray chert Dalton Dart point which is well flaked on both faces Recovered from 95.00
although side B shows multiple shallow 1-step ledges where the host material resisted McCurtain County, Oklahoma
knapping attempts. It shows right hand beveling on both faces with the corresponding
secondary pressure flaking patterns. It has good basal edge and base grinding and is
"all there" as it was anciently made and used. A very nice and very ancient piece

Item: Type: Stillwell Provenance: Price
RPAR146 A very sturdy, light sky-blue/gray and tan chert Stillwell Dart point which is well flaked Recovered from 125.00
on both faces by an accomplished knapper. It has a very slight and shallow trace of an Pike County, Illinois
ancient impact fracture leading down from the tip for 1/2" on side B. The tip was
anciently re-worked but for some unknown reason, was left with a diagonal "flat"
surface. The corner of one basal ear (left ear in photos 1 & 2) is just slightly "ragged",
possibly as a reaction to the impact fracture to the tip. Still a good-sized, desirable point
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 7,000 to 9,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Samantha Dart Provenance: Price
RPAR147 A very thin, almost uni-faced tan chert Samantha Dart point which was created on a Recovered on the Arkansas River 45.00
flake and which appears to be an example of the "fast & dirty" school. It retains 80% in Tulsa County, Oklahoma
of the original flakes flat surface on side B, where it was only pressure flaked around
it's edges, and side A retains a similar flat section comprising about 75% of the
surface area in it's center, also with secondary pressure flaking to it's edges. An
interesting point in it's own right, due to it's apparent "rushed manufacture"
  Era: Late Archaic Period - 1,500 to 2,200 years old Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Red River Knife Provenance: Price
RPAR148 An interesting, very sturdy white, gray and pink novaculite Red River Knife Found by Greg Perino in 120.00
blade which shows good secondary pressure flaking to all of it's edges. It also Choctaw County, Oklahoma
shows remnants of an impact fracture to the tip of side A, which didn't hinder it's
use as a knife blade. The hafting edges and base are anciently ground

Item: Type: Table Rock Provenance: Price
RPAR149 A VERY exceptional, large and broad (for type) light gray/off-white chert Table Recovered from 300.00
Rock knife form. This one is really impressive and is thoroughly flaked on both Northeastern Oklahoma
faces with good secondary pressure flaking to it's edges. The very tip shows
slight ancient "nicking", but other than that, this one is all there as it was anciently
made and used. An impressive artifact, actually.

have lost the tips to it's barbs in ancient times and also has a slight ancient nick to
the tip. Interesting in it's rustic appearance

Item: Type: Hardin Provenance: Price
RPAR151 A very nice white burlington chert Hardin Knife form which is thoroughly flaked on both Recovered from 200.00
faces with extra special attention given to it's blade edges where left handed beveling from St. Clair County, Illinois
ancient resharpenings have introduced intricately serrated edges. This beauty was at least
twice as long before ancient resharpenings reduced it's size an form. Quite a nice piece

Item: Type: Cache River Provenance: Price
RPAR152 A very attractive light brown and red jasper Cache River Arrowhead Recovered from the Cache River 200.00

Item: Type: Chipola Provenance: Price
RPAR153 A very interesting dark blue-gray flint Chipola Arrowhead which is well Recovered from 120.00
flaked on both faces, but which is slightly asymmetrical owing to ancient Miller County, Arkansas
re-working, especially to the tip. It has unusual diagonal through and
through crystal inclusion veins which add to it's character

Item: Type: Castroville Provenance: Price
RPAR154 A fairly large and sturdy glossy semi-translucent caramel colored chert Recovered from 300.00
Castroville Knife blade. It's fairly well flaked on both faces with good Bastrop County, Texas
secondary pressure flaking to it's edges. It shows only ancient usage
wear marks with no modern damage. Quite a nice piece, actually Ex: Patterson Collection

Item: Type: Archaic Preform Provenance: Price
RPAR155 A light gray uni-faced quartzite Preform which unexplainably shows extensive flaking Found by Greg Perino 65.00
patterns to side A, while side B is basically flat and un-worked. Most likely used as a at Hugo Lake, Oklahoma
hand held knife during ancient times, as it went through it's transition to be developed
into another ancient artifact, which was most likely a dart point. It's interesting to note
that it has 2 notch "markers" on opposing sides of the basal area where the ancient
knapper most likely "marked" where he intended to knap out hafting notches
  Era: Est. Archaic Period - 3,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Rio Grande Provenance: Price
RPAR156 A fairly crude and thick fine grained black basalt Rio Grande Dart point which Recovered from the central Rio Grande Valley 85.00
is fairly well flaked on both faces but which has a substantial ancient nick to one between Belen and Las Cruces, New Mexico
edge at the points horizontal centerline. (Photos 6 & 7) The basal area is
thoroughly ground to prevent cutting it's binding to an atlatl fore shaft

Item: Type: Dalton Provenance: Price
RPAR157 A very slender tan chert Dalton Dart Point which is thoroughly flaked on both Recovered from 85.00
faces. From all indications, this was most likely a much larger knife form, which Red River County, Texas
was anciently re-sharpened and worked down to it's present form, which is only a
step away from being reduced to a Drill form. An interesting and attractive piece.

Item: Type: Jude Provenance: Price
RPAR158 A nice, medium sized meaty brown chert Jude Dart Point which is thoroughly Recovered from Alabama (NFI) 120.00

just the necessary amount of percussion flaking to both faces and with additional Hempstead County, Arkansas
pressure flaking patterns to both right hand beveled edges. The basal areas are
thoroughly ground and it has nice mineralization as a testimony to it's antiquity.
It has a slight ancient spider bite to the tip, but is otherwise "all there"

Item: Type: Pandale Provenance: Price
RPAR160 A very sturdy blue-gray flint Pandale Knife form which is well flaked Found near Austin, Texas (NFI) 250.00

Item: Type: Table Rock Provenance: Price
RPAR161 A fairly large and quite attractive pink, tan, off-white and cream-colored Recovered from Illinois (NFI) 300.00
burlington chert Table Rock Knife form. The tip was blunted in ancient time,
most likely for dual use as a scraper/fleshing tool. It's thoroughly flaked on both
faces by an advanced knapper and appears to be "all there" as it was anciently
made and used. The basal sections show good grinding to facilitate the binding
necessary for the heavy duty use this artifact must have seen

Item: Type: Dalton Provenance: Price
RPAR162 A very neat little green and light brown chert Dalton Dart point/Knife form which has a Recovered from Arkansas (NFI) 95.00
highly unusual circular lavender bulls eye pattern on side A. It's well flaked on both faces
by an experienced knapper and shows right hand beveling to it's 2 cutting edges. It also

RPAR163 A very nice, very thin mottled gray chert Upper Valley Knife Blade which is Recovered from Tennessee 400.00
extremely well made with thorough and detailed flaking patterns on both faces,
combined with a nice "bulls eye" pattern. The edges, especially towards the tip
show ancient re-sharpening. This one is "all there" and is a superior artifact. Ex: Marion Dickson

Item: Type: Adena Knife Blade Provenance: Price
RPAR164 A fairly long, dark gray flint Adena Knife Blade which has a very long, pressure fluted Recovered from 150.00
stem. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces, although not in any particularly impressive Kane County, Illinois
pattern. It was obviously well used having gone through countless ancient re-sharpenings
which likely substantially reduced it's original form. A real work horse of a tool

Item: Type: Benton Provenance: Price

flaked on both faces by a very advanced ancient knapper. It has most unusual Peoria County, Illinois in 1960
pinkish swirl patterns through and through. The upper 1/8" of the tip was restored

Item: Type: Morrow Mountain Type I Provenance: Price
RPAR167 A fairly large (for type) and quite flat purplish-burgundy rhyolite Morrow Mountain Recovered from Pennsylvania 150.00
Type I blade. It's crude in appearance, owing to the nature of the host material which
has no flaking capabilities. It has substantial "dips" in the center of side B, and is
essentially "all there" as it was anciently made and used. Quite a unique piece

Item: Type: Dovetail Provenance: Price
RPAR174 A fairly large, sturdy and well made tan and blue-gray chert Dovetail point which is very thoroughly flaked on Recovered from 750.00
both faces by an advanced knapper. It has great and deep corner notches and is basically "all there" with 2 Monmouth, Illinois (NFI)
exceptions. First, it shows very slight, minor usage wear marks to its edges and the tip appears to have been
anciently snapped. (photos 6 & 8) Still a great and somewhat over-sized example of this highly desirable type Ex: W.F. Roller

Item: Type: Kinney Knife Blade Provenance: Price
RPAR176 A fairly large mottled blue and gray chert Kinney Knife Blade which is in excellent Recovered from central Texas (NFI) 1500.00
condition with outstanding frosty patina on a single face. It's well knapped on both faces,
although it retains in inordinate number of ledges and steps which can be partially blamed
on the nature of the host material as well as the inexperience of it's ancient knapper. Still

Item: Type: Frazier Dart Point Provenance: Price
RPAR177 A very colorful mottled purple chert Frazier Dart Point which is well made by an Recovered from Mississippi (NFI) 65.00

Item: Type: First Stage Mescal Knife Blade Provenance: Price
RPAR178 A HUGE, broad and VERY impressive blue-gray and tan chert First Stage Mescal Knife Recovered from a rock shelter 1600.00
Blade. (I'm half tempted to call this one a "Cache Blade", since it is in it's first stage, and was near the Rio Grande, Texas
obviously stored in a rock shelter for future retrieval and use.) It shows mostly thorough
percussion flaking patterns to both faces with very detailed and intricate secondary pressure
flaking all around it's edges. It also has a couple of crystal inclusion sections on each face.
Definitely a superior piece which would look great as a centerpiece to any collection

RPAR179 A VERY LARGE, fairly scarce, extremely well-made and highly colorful mottled Recovered from 1800.00
blue flint Offset Tang Knife Blade which shows thorough and impressive flaking Bastrop County, Texas
patterns to both faces. It has a slight, 7/16" lateral flat to one edge at the tip, which
may just be the way it was made. (photos 6 & 9) and a concave section to one
edge at the centerline, which might have been an intentional spokeshave. A truly
gorgeous and striking artifact which would enhance any collection as it's centerpiece

Item: Type: Keithville Provenance: Price
RPAR180 A very sturdy, off-white chert Keithville Arrowhead which well flaked on both faces to a Recovered from 150.00
median ridge and which has the most intricate edge serrations. The basal edge is ground Jackson County, Arkansas

Item: Type: Lecroy Provenance: Price
RPAR181 Now this one brings new meaning to the term "spent" and "hacked". A dark Recovered from 30.00
brownish-gray chert Lecroy Dart point which was all but used up in ancient Richmond County, Ohio
times and most likely discarded as being no longer useful, with chipping to its
tip and one barb. (photos 6 & 7) Still an interesting "study piece", whose main
redeeming factor is it's great antiquity. Priced accordingly

Item: Type: Calf Creek Provenance: Price
RPAR182 A very asymmetrical semi-translucent tan chert Calf Creek Arrowhead which is Recovered from the Sulphur River 140.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by an experienced knapper. It shows chipping to both in Lamar County, Texas
