Item: Type: Desert General Provenance: Price
CR242 A very attractive purple agate Desert General arrowhead which is "all there" as it Recovered from the 75.00
  was anciently made and used. It has a flat section to one side edge of the base,  Columbia River in WA 30.00
  but this appears to be "as intended" by it's maker (or possibly due to a layer of the during the 1890's  
  host material "falling away" during it's manufacture) rather than actual damage. It    
  has white vertical "glue residue" from being mounted in a case for more than 120    
  years, but this can be easily removed with an acetone soaking. Flaking patterns    
  are thorough to both faces, to a median ridge by an intermediate knapper.    
  Era: Classic to Historic Phase - 200 to 700 years old

Item: Type: Rose Springs Stemmed Provenance: Price
CR243 A pretty striking burgundy-purple chert Rose Springs Stemmed  Recovered from the 85.00
  Arrowhead created by a very advanced knapper. It's only 2 flaws Columbia River in WA 30.00
  are an ancient nick to the bottom of the stem, which gives it a "split- during the 1890's  
  stem" appearance, and a substantial fire-pop to side B, just above     
  the horizontal mid-line. Still quite an attractive and well made piece    
  Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 600 to 1600 years old

Item: Type: Desert General Provenance: Price
CR244 A VERY choice light brown jasper Desert General Arrowhead,  Recovered from the 100.00
  well flaked on both faces by an experienced knapper. This one is Columbia River in WA 35.00
  "all there" as it was anciently made and used. (It does have some during the 1890's  
  glue residue remaining from it's mounting in a frame for more than    
  100 years, but an acetone soaking can remove this)    
  Era: Classic to Historic Phase - 200 to 700 years old

Item: Type: Cottonwood Triangle Provenance: Price
CR245 A deep blood-red agate Cottonwood Triangle Dart point, as perfect Recovered from the 85.00
  as the day it was made. It's well flaked on both faces although not in Columbia River in WA 20.00
  any particularly striking pattern, by an intermediate knapper. Owing during the 1890's  
  to the toughness of the host material, it has a substantial (30% of the     
  full length) vertical step on side B. (right side in photo 6 above) Still a    
  very attractive artifact.    
  Era: Developmental to Historic Phase - 200 to 1100 years old

Item: Type: Diamond Back Provenance: Price
CR246 A very robust and well weathered purple chert Diamond Back   Recovered from the 65.00
  Arrowhead. Flaking patterns are thorough on both faces, basically to Columbia River in WA 25.00
  a median ridge by a barely intermediate knapper. It has good mineral during the 1890's  
  deposits as a testimony to it's antiquity. The base is asymmetrical,     
  but appears (under microscopic examination) to have been made this    
  way, as it doesn't look like ancient damage to me.    
  Era: Late Archaic to Classic Phase - 500 to 2500 years old

Item: Type: Diamond Back Provenance: Price
CR247 A fairly long and slender (for type) red chert Diamond Back Recovered from the 175.00
  Arrowhead which was made on a long flake and retains the Columbia River in WA 65.00
  curvature of the original flake's form. Side A is thoroughly flaked during the 1890's  
  to a median ridge, while side B is less worked, mostly around the    
  edges, also to the vertical centerline by an advanced knapper. It    
  has good mineralization as is "all there" as it was anciently made    
  and used. Quite a choice example of this somewhat rare type    
  Era: Late Archaic to Classic Phase - 500 to 2500 years old

Item: Type: Rose Springs Corner Notched Provenance: Price
CR249 Now here's a true enigma. A deep orange agate Rose Springs Corner Notched  Recovered from the 24.00
  Arrowhead, made on a flake and retaining the (serious) curvature of the flake's Columbia River in WA  
  original form, as well as the flat surfaces of the flake on both faces. It's only  during the 1890's  
  pressure flaked around it's periphery on both faces, but the secondary pressure    
  flaking (where it was done) is quite intricate, truly a "puzzle" piece, possibly    
  made by a very advanced knapper on an "off day", or out of boredom.    
  Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 600 to 1600 years old

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
CR252 An extremely thin and delicate semi-translucent blue-gray agate   Recovered from the 15.00
  Columbia Plateau Arrowhead having a reddish-honey colored tip. Columbia River in WA  
  It has an ancient nick to the end of one barb and the base appears during the 1890's  
  to have been anciently snapped, possibly "by design". Flaking    
  patterns, although very intricate, are isolated to the outer edges    
  only, with both faces having flat, un-worked center areas    
  Era: Classic to Historic Phase - 200 to 500 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Rabbit Island Dart Point Provenance: Price
CR253 An average-sized blood red agate Rabbit Island Dart Point  Recovered from the 15.00
  which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a novice knapper. Columbia River in WA  
  The only damage appears to be an ancient nick to one barb during the 1890's  
  Era: Transitional to Classic phases - 700 to 2,000 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Rose Springs Stemmed Provenance: Price
CR256 A fairly thin purple chert Rose Springs Stemmed Arrowhead Recovered from the 18.00
  which was made on a flake. Side A is thoroughly worked by an  Columbia River in WA  
  advanced knapper, while side B is only pressure flaked around the during the 1890's  
  edges and retains 75% to 80% of the original flake's flat surface.    
  Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 600 to 1600 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Cottonwood Triangle Provenance: Price
CR261 An attractive orange, white and red carnelian agate Cottonwood Recovered from the 15.00
  Triangle Arrowhead which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by Columbia River in WA  
  an advanced knapper. The base is asymmetrical, possibly due to  during the 1890's  
  being anciently salvaged and re-worked after receiving damage in    
  use, and I don't believe that the shallow "notches" were used for    
  hafting, and they just might have been "accidental" from the way    
  the host stone was knapped, as opposed to being "intentional"    
  Era: Developmental to Historic Phase - 200 to 1100 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Rabbit Island Dart Provenance: Price
CR262 A blue-gray and burgundy-brown semi-translucent agate Rabbit Recovered from the 15.00
  Island Dart point. It's very well and thoroughly flaked on both Columbia River in WA  
  faces to a median ridge by a very advanced knapper. The only during the 1890's  
  flaw this one has it that the end of it's base was lost in ancient times    
  Era: Transitional to Classic Phase - 700 to 2,000 years old

Item:

Type: Rose Springs Side Notched

Provenance: Price
CR263 A fairly small and thin deep purple and red agate Rose Springs  Recovered from the 10.00
  Side Notched Bird point arrowhead, which is only sparsely flaked Columbia River in WA  
  on both faces either by an impatient knapper or by a novice. during the 1890's  
  Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 600 to 1,600 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Rabbit Island Dart Provenance: Price
CR264 A nice tan and cream colored chert Rabbit Island Dart point which is Recovered from the 10.00
  fairly well flaked on both faces by an intermediate knapper. It has a Columbia River in WA  
  slight flat section just above the hafting section on side A (left side in during the 1890's  
  photo 5) and one barb was nicked off in ancient times. Still a nice piece    
  Era: Transitional to Classic Phase - 700 to 2,000 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Rabbit Island Dart Provenance: Price
CR265 A very unusual mottled pink, white, light gray and purple agate Rabbit Island Recovered from the 10.00
  Dart point which was made on a flake by a novice knapper and which has Columbia River in WA  
  only very sparse pressure flaking patterns around it's edges. The base during the 1890's  
  appears to have been anciently snapped off and the form is somewhat crude    
  Era: Transitional to Classic Phase - 700 to 2,000 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Jasper Perforator Provenance: Price
CR266 A nice light brown jasper Perforator which is mostly flaked only Recovered from the 10.00
  around the edges and especially to the working tip. This one Columbia River in WA  
  appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and used during the 1890's  
  Era: Developmental to Historic Phase - 200 to 1100 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Rose Springs Corner Notched Arrowhead Provenance: Price
CR267 A so-so dark purple agate Rose Springs Corner Notched Recovered from the 12.00
  Arrowhead which shows multiple manufacturing flaws created Columbia River in WA  
  by a novice knapper. Priced accordingly during the 1890's  
  Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 600 to 1,600 years old    
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Rose Springs Corner Notched Arrowhead Provenance: Price
CR268 A light brown and pink jasper Rose Springs Corner Notched Recovered from the 12.00
  Arrowhead, created on a flake and retaining 90% of the original Columbia River in WA  
  flake's flat surface on side B, where it has secondary pressure during the 1890's  
  flaking only around the edges. Side A has an outer pink cortex    
  layer remaining on it's right side for an area of 25%. Obviously    
  created by a novice knapper who was probably still in training    
  Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 600 to 1,600 years old

MBCR63 A monster red and greenish-brown jasper Columbia Documented only as 600.00
  Plateau, VERY large (for type) Flaking patterns are very being from the Columbia  
  thorough and expertly done on both faces to a median River, most likely the  
  ridge. An outstanding specimen with one teensy weensy upper Columbia River in  
  little problem... it was found in 2 pieces and seamlessly Washington  
  glued back together. (The break is 3/4" from the very tip)

Item: Type: Unspecified Provenance: Price
RPCR6 Provenance undocumented, so typing this one is problematic, it Undocumented 22.00
  resembles the Pekisko type from the Northern Plains areas but     
  the material and form also resembles Desert Delta points found    
  in Washington, on the Columbia River. The patination is more    
  indicative of desert region types rather than types recovered on    
  the rivers. Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Rock Shelter Cobble Tools Provenance: Price
RPCR8 A highly unusual pair of river cobble tools, surmised by the finder Recovered from a rock  250.00
  to be prying tools for opening clamshells, and from the usage   shelter on the Columbia  
  wear, I'm inclined to agree with this assessment. These come with River in Kittitas Co., WA  
  a detailed hand-lettered history of origin by the finder. (The finder    
  states that these are the only 2 of this type of artifact he found in    
  more than 10 years of hunting this area) Quite fascinating and    
  unique tools! Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
RPCR9 A very nice, very thin and extremely well formed and well Recovered from 120.00
  worked translucent agate Arrowhead created by a very the John Day River  
  advanced knapper. (Mounted on an index card by it's original finder.) in Oregon  
  Period/Age: Classic-Historic phases - 200-500 B.P. Ex: Greg Perino  

Item: Type: Columbia River Collection Provenance: Price
DFCR76 A spectacular collection of 66 varied Columbia River Arrowheads in a great Recovered from the 1,200.00
  cross-section of the gemstone material which is to be found nowhere else in the Columbia River in 750.00
  world. This nice group was assembled during the 1950's and has remained as a Washington 7/15 ON-HOLD ws
  private collection until now. From hunting the same areas myself, I can testify that    
  this assemblage is probably the culmination of an effort spanning many many years.   dlca

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JACR38 A nice medium-sized off-white calcedony Merrybell Arrowhead Recovered from the 45.00
  made on a larger flake and retaining 40% of the original flake's flat Columbia River in  
  surface on side B. (photo5) Side A also has a flat section, dead   Oregon  
  center, remaining from a percussion flake during the initial phases of    
  it's creation. (photo 4) Still a good looking piece with a darker gray    
  diagonal band running through it's centerline on side B. (photo 3)    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
TCSCR5 A very attractive and delicate mottled red and burgundy agate Gunther Barbed Recovered from the 65.00
  Arrowhead, well worked on both faces by a very experienced knapper. It has Rogue River in  
  very minute and intricate edge serrations and a most unfortunate single missing  Oregon  
  tang. It has remnants of asphaltum, which was used as a binding agent for hafting    
  in and above both notches. This is one piece which is worthy of restoration.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
TCSCR11 A fairly small and delicate mottled light gray and burgundy Recovered from the 30.00
  Rabbit Island Arrowhead, well flaked on both faces by an Columbia River in  
  experienced knapper. The barbs are asymmetrical, but this Oregon  
  one is "all there" as anciently made and used.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
TCSCR12 A very small, nicely formed purplish burgundy chert Rose Springs Recovered from 25.00
  Bird point arrowhead which is well worked on both faces by an the Dalles on the  
  experienced knapper. It has a very ancient nick to the tip of one Columbia River  
  barb, and one corner of the stem is asymmetrical, as made, but in Oregon  
  this one is otherwise "all there" as it was made and used long ago. Ex: Les Packer  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
RPCR2 A fairly large and extremely crude red petrified wood Found on the Columbia River in 1951 100.00
  Knife blade which has lighter pink and white petrified in Kittitas Co., WA (It retains the  
  "worm burrows" throughout it's surface. It shows original finder's label of provenance)  
  sparse flaking patterns along both edges as well as on    
  the convex base. A very fascinating and unique piece. Ex: Perino  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DACR761 An extremely rare dark brown highly polished "reversible" Recovered near 2,750.00 
  hourglass shaped stone Paint Mortar. It has a concave Portland, OR  
  bowl section on each end for use in grinding/processing 2    
  different paint colors by grinding up ores and plant matter     
  which was then mixed with animal fat to create the desired    
  paint for a number of applications, such as when creating    
  pictographs. It has a few ancient usage nicks to the rims,    
  but is otherwise in the same condition as it was used    
  hundreds of years ago. A rare, museum quality piece.   dldato761

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JACR4 A very crude and fairly thick semi-translucent white agate Quilomene Bar Recovered on the Columbia 25.00
  Knife form having no real outstanding damage. The crudeness of this River near the town of  
  ancient piece is partially owing to the difficulty in working the material Condon in Gilliam Co., OR  
  chosen coupled with the obvious lack of experience on the knapper's    
  part. (And I can just hear him speaking to me from the happy hunting    
  ground, saying "gimme a break... I was only 9 when I made that one!") Ex: Vernon Immel Collection  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DACR704 A very nice deep mottled purplish-brown Cascade Recovered from 125.00
  Shouldered Knife form, thoroughly flaked on both Umatilla, OR  
  faces and problem-free. Just a nice attractive piece Lang COA

  Mule Ear blade which is quite asymmetrical in Oregon  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DACR716 A somewhat small (for type) mottled pink, tan and Found on the 45.00
  gray chert Columbia Mule Ear knife form. It's missing  Columbia River  
  it's tip, and is just a so-so piece, in my humble opinion, in Oregon  
  but I was never crazy about Mule Ears to begin with.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DACR700 A mottled gray chert Plateau Pentagonal Knife blade Found on the 25.00
  which is all but spent from ancient resharpenings Columbia River  
    in Oregon

    in Washington  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFCR65 A mottled gray and brown agate Rabbit Island Dart Recovered between 12.00
  point created by a barely intermediate knapper. It  Vantage and Priest Rapids  
  has a single diagonal ledge running from the right side on the Columbia River  
  of the base in photo 4 to just above the right barb. in Washington  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DICR1 A very slender, delicate purple-gray-brown Columbia   Recovered in 160.00
  River Pencil Drill made on a flake. Side A is well worked Yakima Co., WA  
  while side B retains 30% of the original flake's surface in    
  a vertical line running up the center. It has the slightest    
  spider bite to the tip but is really a nice little gem. These  Ex: Carlson  
  are somewhat scarce, because of their delicate make-up, Ex: Roy Capps  
  not many survived the torrents of the Columbia River. Jackson COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFCR40 A reasonably large (for type) very light gray chert  Recovered on the Columbia River  100.00
  Quilomene Bar dart point made by an intermediate near Vantage, WA during the 1960's 75.00
  knapper. It has a nick to the tip of one barb and a    
  slight nick to the tip. Still quite an attractive piece    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFCR42 A mottled white and gray agate- Recovered on the Columbia River  18.00
  chert Merrybell Arrowhead well near Vantage, WA during the 1960's  
  flaked on both faces    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFCR49 A fairly worked down mottled brown, gray and  Recovered on the Columbia River  25.00
  red petrified wood Columbia Mule Ear knife blade. near Vantage, WA during the 1960's  
  It's well flaked on both faces in a material which    
  fought the knapping efforts at every turn. It has a    
  slightly flat section (15%) on side B, to the right of    
  the centerline from the original host stone's rind.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
MHCR1353 An interesting burgundy chert Columbia Plateau Recovered in 15.00
  arrowhead which lost one tang long ago, and Washington Co., OR  
  which didn't take it out of commission. It's well  by Les Packer  
  flaked on both faces by a very advanced knapper.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFCR39 A nice light gray, tan and burgundy chert Unclassified  Unfortunately undocumented, 75.00
  Triangular dart point having a purplish hue, mostly on side although it came as part of a 50.00
  B and having a single narrow flute to side A. It appears larger Columbia River case  
  to have lost the base/stem in ancient times and the edge    
  of the base was re-worked to put it back into service    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFCR33 A medium-sized semi-translucent white, light gray, light Recovered near the 45.00
  brown and red agate Atlatl Valley Triangular knife Okanogan River, WA 7/26 ON-HOLD bg
  form, well flaked on side B with micro flaking to one     
  edge. Side A has a flat section remaining from the    
  original hoststone covering the entire right cutting edge     
  of side B, shown in photo 5. It also has an ancient nick    
  to the base (photo 7) caused by an overly aggressive    
  pressure flaking attempt, but is still an attractive piece    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFCR38 A white and light gray agate Rabbit Island arrowhead Found near 15.00
  well flaked on both faces to a median ridge and Priest Rapids, WA  
  having a slight, 10% flat in the center of side B just    
  above the base. It has a nibble from the tip
