Item: Type: Uvalde Dart Point Provenance: Price
RPAR188 A purplish-gray sugar quartzite Uvalde Dart point which shows good flaking patterns Recovered from the Canadian River 75.00
to both faces, regardless of the difficulty with "flaking" this type of host stone. below Lake Eufaula, Oklahoma
  Era: Middle Archaic to Woodland Period - 1,500 to 6,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
Item: Type: Godar Preform Provenance: Price
RPAR189 A highly attractive glossy pink and white chert Godar Preform which is very well made with Recovered from 250.00
good flaking patterns on both faces. This one appears to be in it's first stage and might have St. Clair County, Illinois
doubled as a knife blade during it's further manufacturing process. This one is "all there" and
is an exceptional piece which was published in Prehistoric Art 1940 on page 49.
  Era: Late Archaic Period - 3,500 to 4,500 years old Ex: Greg Perino
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
Item: Type: San Patrice - Keithville Variety Provenance: Price
RPAR190 A nice, small, worked-down light brown chert San Patrice, Keithville variety Recovered from the Sulphur River 65.00
Arrowhead which is somewhat crudely flaked, mostly owing to the fact that it in Lamar County, Texas
was anciently re-worked many times. Still a nice and most ancient point.
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 8,000 to 10,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
Item: Type: Palmer Provenance: Price
RPAR191 A very attractive and nicely made off-white chert Palmer Arrowhead which Recovered from 120.00
shows superior craftsmanship with the thorough flaking patterns on both faces as Miami County, Ohio
well as it's exceptional symmetry. It has a dark vertical vein running lengthwise
down side A from the tip and is "all there" as it was anciently made and used
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 6,000 to 9,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
Item: Type: Orient Fish Tail Provenance: Price
RPAR192 A somewhat crudely made light gray chert Orient Fish Tail Blade / Dart Point which shows Recovered from 120.00
thorough flaking patterns to both faces by a novice knapper. It's main strength is that it is "all Knox County, Ohio
there" as it was anciently made and used, and is quite an old piece and a scarce type
  Era: Late Archaic to Woodland Period - 2,500 to 4,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Simonsen Knife Provenance: Price
RPAR17 A fairly large, very broad and sturdy light brown chert Early Archaic Simonsen Recovered in 150.00
  Knife form very well flaked on both faces but having ancient damage to one Limestone Co., AL  
  basal ear and the tang above it, right side in photo 1 and photos 6 & 8. These     
  photos show a lateral fracture travelling up from one corner of the basal ear with    
  an ancient clip to the corresponding side's barb. The opposite side of the base  Ex: Dickson  
  has a smaller ancient nick to the stem's ear. Still a huge piece which displays well. Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: Neuberger Knife Provenance: Price
RPAR18 A medium-sized off-white burlington chert Archaic Neuberger  Recovered in Pike Co., IL 220.00
  Knife form which is thoroughly flaked on both faces but having a    
  small, 1/4" stubborn section which left a single diagonal step just      
  above the centerline near the left cutting edge in photo 3. It shows    
  quite a bit of usage wear marks to the cutting edges and is missing    
  the tip of one tang. (left side in photo 7) It has a most unusual    
  very thin through-and-through quartz crystal vein running    
  diagonally across the face. (photos 3, 5 & 6) A very well used    
  ancient knife blade which leans towards the "Plain Jane" side. Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: Lange Knife Provenance: Price
RPAR19 A very light brown flint Lange Knife form which is quite thin and Recovered in 220.00
  well made. It has a nice mixture of percussion flaking and SE Texas  
  pressure flaking patterns on both faces in a very random    
  pattern. It has 2 slight nicks on the same edge of the blade, one     
  at the centerline, the other closer to the tip. (left side of photo 1)    
  It also has a slight nick to the stem's edge near the left corner in    
  photo 5 and the very tip of one shoulder was nicked off in     
  ancient times. (left side in photo 6) WHEW!... that sounds like a Ex: Greg Perino  
  lot of damage, but it's not... this one's still lookin' pretty good Collection  

Item: Type: Turkey Tail Hebron Provenance: Price
RPAR20 A very attractive blue flint Turkey Tail Hebron having powdery tan Recovered in 250.00
  coloration on and just above the stem from the outer cortex of the Saint Clair Co., IL  
  host stone. It's fairly thin and well flaked on both faces, mostly by    
  percussion flaking to the main body with pressure flaking to the    
  edges. It has an ancient usage nick to each of the cutting edges     
  above the horizontal centerline which can readily be seen in photo 5    
  and a spider bite to the tip. Overall, not a bad looking piece at all. Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: LaJita Knife Form Provenance: Price
RPAR21 A medium tan flint LaJita Knife form (classified by "the master", Recovered in 200.00
  although I think it looks more like a Lange, you decide) which is  Bandera Co., TX  
  fairly thin and sparsely flaked on both faces with most of the flaking    
  patterns being from the initial direct percussion stage. It has some    
  pressure flaking patterns, mostly around the outer edges. Ex: Greg Perino  

Item: Type: Angostura Provenance: Price
RPAR22 A fairly long and quite broad (for type) attractive tan and gray chert  Recovered in 375.00
  Angostura Dart point/knife form having an overall pleasant yellowish Winn Parish, LA  
  patina hue to the surfaces. Flaking patterns are mostly random on    
  side A, while side B shows an attempt at oblique transverse flaking    
  (left side of photo 3) coupled with more random patterns on the    
  remainder of the surface on this side. It has an ancient nick on one    
  cutting edge near the tip. (left side in photo 3 and close-up in photo 8)    
  It has heavy Paleo-style basal grinding and is overall an attractive Ex: Greg Perino  
  piece with heavy surface weathering and polish. Collection  

Item: Type: Neosho Knife Blade Provenance: Price
RPAR6 Okay, guys, this question's for extra credit... with only looking Recovered in Central Texas 125.00
  at the ashy caliche deposits, can anyone guess what state this     
  one came from? Texas is right! (the ashy caliche deposits, which    
  I haven't seen with the same abundance on artifacts from other    
  states are a very common trait on a great multitude of artifacts    
  recovered from the great state of Texas) A well-used mottled     
  brownish-gray chert Neosho Knife Blade formed exclusively by    
  percussion flaking. It's quite a work-horse of a blade and has    
  nicks to both barbs, as shown in photos 5 though 8. Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DLAR1 A HUGE and absolutely magnificent off-white burlington Recovered in 1,200.00
  chert Osceola Knife form which is just a no-brainer for the Stark Co., IN  
  mineral deposits it displays. Flaking is thorough to both    
  faces, albeit not especially exceptional. It has a few recent     
  nicks to the edges, most likely from improper handling, but is    
  still an excellent centerpiece for any collection Ex: C. Lynch  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DLAR3 A nice mottled light reddish brown flint Alberta Knife From a much older 650.00
  blade/Scraper combination tool, well flaked on both undocumented collection  
  faces with a bit of a vertical dig, near one edge at the (My guess would be  
  hafting line. (Left side in photo 2 & upside down in Kentucky)  
  photo 7) From the original striking platform which    
  appears at the tip (photo 6), this form appears to be    
  the way it was originally made  Ex: H. Hasse  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DLAR4 A glossy river polished gray-blue hornstone Hardin Recovered in 300.00
  Knife form displaying heavy river polish which Henderson Co., MO  
  slightly subdued the flaking patterns. It's nicely    
  beveled with thorough flaking to both faces, but    
  has 5 nicks along one edge on side B, probably    
  from being tossed around on a river bed. Still a    
  decent piece with good provenance Ex: C. Lynch  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DIAR5 A light brown Edwards plateau chert Covington From the famous Wilson 200.00
  knife blade, made on a large flake, thoroughly County Sand Pit site in  
  flaked on side A but retaining 50% of the original Texas  
  flake's flat surface on the bottom half of side B Rogers COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DIAR6 A nice mottled red and orange heat treated Recovered in SOLD 6/16
  chert Wells dart point having good flaking Central Texas  
  patterns and excellent serrated edges Rogers COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DIAR3 A Classic mottled brown and gray Buffalo  Recovered in  250.00
  River chert Snapped-base Kirk blade having Decatur, TN  
  some pretty wicked serrations. Flaking    
  patterns are thorough on both faces. Just a  Ex: Steve Hamm  
  superior example of this nice artifact type. Jackson COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCAR5 A beautiful little fine grained basalt, heavily desert polished Cascade  Churchill Co., NV 100.00
  dart point, thoroughly and well flaked on both faces, although the flaking    
  patterns are somewhat (pleasantly) subdued by the desert polish.    
  A superior piece!    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAAR1 Well the finder of this HUGE beautiful piece undoubtedly needed CPR in the field, a Recovered in 875.00
  VERY large and extremely well made semi-translucent, opalescent diagonally banded Lake Co., OR  
  obsidian Elko Corner Notched Knife form. Flaking patterns are very thorough on both     
  faces by a very advanced knapper. It retains a few (3) percussion flake marks in the very (more information  
  center of side A just below the horizontal midsection to just below the hafting line, and it to buyer)  
  also has a very interesting series of 6 horizontal percussion flake marks which "step    
  down" the face of side B. All areas surrounding the original percussion flake marks are    
  thoroughly and intricately pressure flaked in quite minute patterns. The diagonal duo-flow      
  banding needs a special mention, as the bands themselves are very closely spaced, which    
  is quite unusual for banded obsidian. The tip has two ancient usage chips (photos 7 & 9)    
  and the very tip of one of the basal ears was anciently nicked. Still a highly desirable    
  MONSTER of a piece which deserves "centerpiece status" in a worthy collection. Stermer COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
MCAR4 A light greenish-gray and tan flint late Archaic San Pedro Found near Albuquerque, NM 95.00
  Knife form which is quite thick and sturdy with fairly    
  ragged edges from ancient usage. Flaking is thorough on    
  both faces, although not especially spectacular.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
MCAR3 A mottled blue-gray and tan chert Early Archaic Knife blade Found near Albuquerque, NM 80.00
  which was greatly worked down in ancient times from it's    
  original form. It's well worked on both faces mostly by initial    
  percussion flaking with thorough pressure flaking to all 4     
  edges. It has a very thinned out base to facilitate good hafting    
  as well as basal grinding and "hafting stop" steps on side A.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
MCAR5 An off-white, light blue and tan chert Ventana Side Notched Arrow  Recovered near Causey, NM 60.00
  point which is somewhat on the thick side, well flaked on both faces    
  by an experienced knapper and having basal grinding with overall    
  good mineralization as a testimony to it's great antiquity. Not a bad    
  little piece with thousands of years under it's belt.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
