Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
TDICR650 A nice mottled burgundy, tan, light brown and white speckled agate Rabbit Island Arrowhead Offered for sale by the original 200.00
which is trying to impersonate the Dagger Type. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces to a finder who recovered this one 180.00
median ridge by a somewhat experienced knapper. Under microscopic examination, it on the Columbia River in
appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made, although the very tip is slightly flattened off, Gilliam County, Oregon
but it looks like this is the way it was made. Certainly an interesting and different variant.

Item: Type: Wallula Gap Provenance: Price
TDICR651 An extremely thin (paper thin on the upper 1/2) translucent off-white agate Wallula Gasp Recovered from the Columbia 220.00
Arrowhead which is well flaked on both faces by an almost-advanced knapper. It has a very River near The Dalles, Oregon 195.00
short and shallow 2-step stack on side A, just above the hafting line (right side in photos 2 &
4) and a very slight vertical step which is just inside of the left edge in photos 2 and 4 just
above the left tang. Both of these features, although probably not intentional, are as this piece
was originally made. This one appears to be "all there", and just a wicked looking weapon.

Under microscopic examination, this one appears to be "all there" as it was
anciently made. It also has the most intricate secondary pressure flaking that I
have ever seen around the edges. A nice and good-sized piece for the type.

from the original flake's form. It's form is asymmetrical owing to a "stubby barb" from the material, I would put this one as being

Item: Type: Rose Springs Provenance: Price

Item: Type: Quilomene Bar Knife Provenance: Price
TDICR61 A very sturdy fairly large, for type, very attractive translucent yellow and orange agate Quilomene Bar Knife Form. Recovered from Lady Island, WA 275.00
It's well flaked on side A while side B is more intricately flaked around the edges with a 20% flat pressure flaked flute on the Columbia River 200.00
running from the base almost to the mid-line of the blade, which facilitated good hafting. It has a white diagonal chert
vein on side B just to the right of center (photo 4) and this vein has slight depressions, being a weaker material than
the agate host stone. Sadly some idiot thought that this one needed a little dressing up to the tip, so it has modern re-
chipping to both edges at the tip. (This re-chipping is only obvious under microscopic examination, but re-chipping is  
re-chipping, and DOES affect the value of artifacts in a most adverse way) The re-chipped area is pointed out in  
detail in Ben Stermer's evaluation letter for this piece. In spite of this flaw, this piece still displays VERY well and the  
unusual gem material it's made from "almost" makes up for the re-chipping. Ex: Heupel
Era: Late Archaic to Transitional Phase - 2000 to 3000 years old Stermer Evaluation Letter (for re-chipping)

Item: Type: Desert Delta Provenance: Price
TDICR118 Funky, funky, funky... I had to put this one under the microscope because of it's most unusual form before I Recovered on the Columbia River with no 150.00
even started on the write-up, just to make sure that it was "the real deal"... I'm happy to say that it IS!... An further information documented, but judging 110.00
extremely thin (actually ultra-thin), delicate and downright "wicked" semi-translucent red, yellow and gray from the material, I would put this one as being
agate Desert Delta birdpoint arrowhead. (and I'm not gonna kid you, this one was TOUGH to type, until I from the Upper Columbia River in Washington
realized that the stubby little stem on the bottom was the remnant from an experienced knapper's "extension", possibly in the Vantage area
so that he could work such a small point. I've never seen this before, although I've always suspected that this
was the technique used by the ancient knappers to turn out such small beauties.) This is one heck of a unique
piece which clearly demonstrates ancient knapping technology. (I've never seen this before)

nice and intricate serrated edge-work and a small spider bite to the tip. It also from the Upper Columbia River in Washington

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
TDICR126 A gorgeous, fully translucent ice agate Rabbit Island birdpoint arrowhead which is Recovered on the Columbia River with no 175.00

Arrowhead which is fairly well flaked on both faces to a median ridge. It further information documented, but judging
appears that the ancient knapper slipped while he was trimming up one from the material, I would put this one as being

as it was anciently made and used. Quite an attractive piece. possibly in the Vantage area

Item: Type: Rose Springs Side Notched Provenance: Price
TDICR130 A very thin, semi-translucent off-white and brown agate Rose Springs Side Recovered on the Columbia River with no 18.00
Notched Arrowhead, made on a flake and retaining 65% of the flake's flat surface further information documented, but judging
on side A, where it is only minimally worked around the edges, and retaining 90% from the material, I would put this one as being
of the original flake's "rippled" surface on side B where it was only retouch-flaked from the Upper Columbia River in Washington
on one single edge and the tip. Definitely a "rush job" by a junior knapper. possibly in the Vantage area

It has a very short, slight lateral clip to one edge below the tip and it has a from the material, I would put this one as being

Item: Type: Wallula Gap Provenance: Price
TDICR132 A very delicate, paper-thin semi-translucent off-white, honey-colored and Recovered on the Columbia River with no 65.00
brown agate Wallula Gap Arrowhead which is well flaked on both faces, further information documented, but judging
although the flaking patterns are somewhat subdued, owing to the nature of the from the material, I would put this one as being
host material. It appears to have a lateral clip to one corner of the stem, and this from the Upper Columbia River in Washington
could very well be just the way it was made because all of it's other extremities possibly in the Vantage area
(tip and both barb) are totally intact and quite sharp. A superior piece.

story, as it retains 65% of the original flake's flat surface and is only worked from the Upper Columbia River in Washington
around the edges. The stem is asymmetrical, but this appears to just be the way possibly in the Vantage area
it was made. A good-looking little piece.

the host material. Side B retains a 25-30% vertical flat spot in the center above the from the material, I would put this one as being
stem from the flake's outer layer. The stem is asymmetrical (as it was made) and it from the Upper Columbia River in Washington
appears to have a flea bite to the tip as well as to the tip of one barb, which also might possibly in the Vantage area
be just the way it was made, it's hard to tell. At any rate, this one is made from one of
the most attractive agates only to be found on the Columbia River.

TDICR135 A very thin, delicate and well made translucent orange and brown agate Rose Recovered on the Columbia River with no 65.00
Springs Side Notched Arrowhead which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by further information documented, but judging

blue-gray circular through-and-through spot. Made on a curved flake (which accounts further information documented, but judging
for it's paper-thinness) it retains 85% of the original flake's flat surface on side B and from the material, I would put this one as being
25% on side A, having been only worked around the outer edges. It also has a bowed from the Upper Columbia River in Washington

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
TDICR139 A very fascinating and broad deep burgundy and red agate Columbia Plateau Recovered on the Columbia River with no 65.00
arrowhead having a yellow agate base. It was made on a flake and retains 65% (or further information documented, but judging
better) of the original flake's flat surface on side B, while side A is thoroughly flaked from the material, I would put this one as being
in a random pattern. It has a clip to the tip of one tang (right side in photo 2) The 2 from the Upper Columbia River in Washington
spots on opposing edges near the tip in photo 3 which look like "nicks" are actually possibly in the Vantage area
due to overly aggressive knapper by it's maker. Quite a unique piece.

OK... so they probably had female warriors too) It was made on a flake with from the material, I would put this one as being
side A being thoroughly knapped in a most attractive fashion while side B is also from the Upper Columbia River in Washington
