the surface leading from one tang, caused by an overly-aggressive knapping attempt.

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

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.

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.

TCSCR52 A very thin, small and delicate semi-translucent off-white and honey colored agate Recovered from the 50.00

Item: Type: Rose Springs Corner Notched Provenance: Price
TCSCR53 An absolutely GORGEOUS, almost fully translucent and opalescent white agate Rose Springs Recovered from the 80.00
Corner Notched Arrowhead which shows near perfect symmetry and very beautiful, intricate flaking Columbia River in Washington
patterns to both faces. Sadly it has a major flaw in that the very tip was broken and re-glued, priced
accordingly. (Breaks of this nature almost always point to careless handling and/or storage by a
collector, because if a break of this nature occurred in ancient times, it would have been totally
impossible to find the smaller, matching piece... so, I call this one an "OH CHIT" break.)

thoroughly flaked on both faces by an experienced knapper, although in somewhat of a Columbia River in the Vantage to Priest Rapids areas
random pattern. The very bottom of the basal stem was anciently "snapped", which I
believe to be part of the manufacturing process. (A longer stem than was necessary for
utalitarian use was left during the knapping process of MANY smaller points in order for
the ancient knapper to have something to hold onto during the knapping process; I've seen
this with many many birdpoints and smaller arrowheads.) Quite an attractive piece, actually
