faces but not in any particularly impressive pattern. The base has an ancient lateral Otero Co., NM 50.00
shear to one side making the whole piece asymmetrical. It also appears to have a slight
ancient lateral shear from the very tip down 1 edge. (Left edge in photo 4)
Era: Chiricahua Stage of Coshise Culture - 6,000 years old Stermer COA

Item: Type: Frio Provenance: Price
LSAR122 An off-white chert Frio dart point which is well flaked on both faces, although Recovered from 45.00
not in any particularly impressive pattern. The flaking patterns are somewhat Pecos Valley, TX 25.00
subdued owing to the nature of the host material, and the point itself gives the
impression that it was re-worked in ancient times.

Item: Type: Arenosa Provenance: Price
LSAR127 Weird, weird, weird is all I can say about this one. It's a nice high-grade partially translucent burgundy agate (although Recovered from 75.00
it's listed as being chert on the COA) Arenosa Dart point having blue speckled inclusions and notches added anciently Southwestern Texas 50.00
near the tip. (Which leads me to believe that this was some warrior/hunter's "lucky point" which he turned into a
pendant, although this usage is not listed on the COA) Flaking patterns are mostly percussion on the faces with very fine
secondary pressure flaking patterns to the edges. The stem was anciently sheared off. Quite a unique piece, actually

striking pattern. This one is published in Overstreet's guide to Indian Arrowheads, 12th

edge work. It's fairly thin and thoroughly flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper. 95.00

thoroughly flaked on both faces in mostly a random pattern with finer pressure re-touch flaking 150.00
to it's edges. A very good-sized and attractive piece which appears to be "all there" as it was
anciently made and used. This one would make a good centerpiece to any collection.

Item: Type: Unclassified Archaic Dart point Provenance: Price
LSAR133 A fairly small translucent moonstone, brown and black agate unclassified Archaic Dart point Recovered from 45.00
which shows good, early period flaking patterns. It has some pitting, especially on side B Otero Co., NM 20.00
where an agate vein ran diagonally just above the center-line. Personally I think that this was
a "re-cycled" tip of a much larger dart point which was damaged during ancient times.

Item: Type: Dickson Provenance: Price
LSAR134 A pretty neat, VERY flat blue-gray flint Dickson Stemmed Knife form turned Dart point. This piece has a lot of Recovered from Texas 85.00
character, made by a VERY advanced (if not "stingy") knapper who knew how to get the most mileage out of (no further details recorded) 50.00
scarce knappable host material through ancient re-sharpenings. This one is truly a study in ancient knapping
technology and shows the Archaic period's practice of beveled re-sharpenings without altering the symmetrical form
of this nice piece. It has no flaws, and is essentially "all there" as it was anciently used, worked-down and re-used.

needed, very sparingly. It has the typical "knife blade usage wear" but is intact as it was made and used. A nice artifact
