beveling on it's edges to both faces. It's pretty much "all there" as it was anciently
made and used, although it does show signs of multiple ancient re-sharpenings

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

point which is very rustic in appearance with percussion flaking to both faces in McCurtain County, Oklahoma

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: 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

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"

Item: Type: Red River Knife Provenance: Price

slight ancient "nicking", but other than that, this one is all there as it was anciently
made and used. An impressive artifact, actually.

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

Item: Type: Dalton Provenance: Price
RPAR157 A very slender tan chert Dalton Dart Point which is thoroughly flaked on both Recovered from 85.00

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: 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
