Item: Type: Eccentric Obsidian Pendant Provenance: Price
DFCR115 A highly unusual, if not unique and delicate opaque obsidian Eccentric Pendant which From an older collection recovered 120.00
shows a high degree of river polish which in turn "masks" any flaking patterns that this piece during the 1950's at Bigg's Junction
might have had when it was first made. It's in great condition and is quite a desirable artifact in Oregon

Item: Type: Spedis Dart Point Provenance: Price
DFCR113 A nice multi-colored light brown, tan, off-white and rose colored chert Spedis type I Dart Point which Recovered on the Columbia River, 185.00
is thoroughly flaked on side A, but which has a 10% flat section on side B in the center, just above the most likely in Washington (NFI)
base, left from the host stone's outer cortex layer. It has a very short almost unnoticeable, 1/8" long  
lateral nick to one edge at the very tip. (left side in photos 1, 2 and 5) Outside of this minor flaw, this
beauty is "all there" as fresh as the day it was made, not bad at all, considering its substantial antiquity

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
DFCR99 A semi-translucent off-white, brown and orange agate Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which From an older collection recovered 35.00

to the nature of the host stone and probably a bit of river polish as well. Side B is only (most likely in Oregon)
pressure flaked around it's edges and retains an 85% flat section in it's center from the original
flake's surface. It could also use an acetone bath, because it has dark brown residue on side
A left from some sort of "mounting" glue. Still not a bad specimen at all

running from edge to edge approximately 1/3rd of the way upwards from the base. (Photos 4, 6

which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a master knapper. It's only flaw is the Columbia River in Washington
missing tip from one barb (left side in photo 2) which was nicked off in ancient times.

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
TCSCR45 A nice light gray and rose-colored matte chert Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which Recovered from the 35.00
has irregular flaking patterns on both faces. The very tip was lost in ancient times Columbia River in Oregon
and the base shows a flat spot which may or may not be ancient damage. (Might by Carl Schaefer
be just the way it was made, I can't honestly tell for sure.) Priced accordingly.

Item: Type: Rose Springs Stemmed Provenance: Price
TCSCR46 A nice, colorful mottled purple, red and light gray chert Rose Springs Stemmed Recovered from the 100.00
Arrowhead. It's well flaked on both faces by an intermediate knapper but has a Columbia River in Washington
very small nick to the tip of one barb as well as to one corner of the basal stem.
Still a nice, delicate and collectible point.

Item: Type: Elko Corner Notched Provenance: Price
TCSCR47 A very interesting clear, black and mahogany tri-flow obsidian Elko Corner Notched Recovered from the 75.00
Arrowhead which is well flaked on both faces by a novice knapper with a "dig" to Columbia River in Washington
the surface leading from one tang, caused by an overly-aggressive knapping attempt.
(right tang in photo 5) It has slight ancient nicks to the tip of one tang as well as to
one basal edge of it's stem. Still, tri-flow obsidian pieces are a bit on the scarce side.

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
TCSCR48 An interesting flat matte tan and pink chert Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which is Found by Herb Brusman 40.00
well flaked on side A but which has a flat spot on side B just above the stem with in Wallowa County, Oregon
mostly flaking around the edges on this side. It's paper thin and shows ancient flea
bites to the tip as well as to the tip of one tang, and these just might have been the
way it was made by a less experienced knapper. The bottom of the base also shows
a serious "sheared" clip, which looks like ancient damage to me. Priced accordingly.

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
TCSCR49 A very thin, delicate and attractive light gray petrified wood Columbia Plateau Arrowhead Recovered from the 100.00
which has good flaking patterns to both faces made by an intermediate knapper. It has an Columbia River in Washington
ancient spider bite to the tip of one barb (left side in photo 2) but is otherwise "all there".
Petrified wood is quite difficult to knap, and perhaps I'm mis-judging and "under-grading"
the knapper's true level of expertise with this one.

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
TCSCR50 An interesting, slender and thin cream colored chert Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which was made Recovered from the 65.00
on a flake and which has thorough flaking patterns to side A, with side B retaining a 60% flat Columbia River in Washington
section(s) in the center, being only pressure flaked around the edges. It has ancient nicks to the tip of
both barbs as well as to the stem, most likely caused from years of bouncing around in the Columbia
River, as it shows hints of slight tannic staining from being under water for a period of time.

Item: Type: Dagger Provenance: Price
TCSCR51 Quite an attractive and colorful semi-translucent white, pink, and red agate Dagger point having Recovered from the 110.00
internal hues of light blue. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces, basically to an "attempted" Columbia River in Washington
median ridge and appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made. It has hints of slight tannic
staining giving it it's "badge of courage" for actually surviving a spell IN the Columbia River.
  Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 400 to 1200 years old
