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 20.00
  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 50.00
  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

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

Item: Type: Rose Springs Stemmed Provenance: Price
CR256 A fairly thin purple chert Rose Springs Stemmed Arrowhead Recovered from the 15.00
  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

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Dart Provenance: Price
CR262 A blue-gray and burgundy-brown semi-translucent agate Rabbit Recovered from the 20.00
  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

Type: Rose Springs Side Notched

Provenance: Price

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Dart Provenance: Price
CR264 A nice tan and cream colored chert Rabbit Island Dart point which is Recovered from the 15.00
  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 12.00
  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 15.00

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 15.00
  Arrowhead which shows multiple manufacturing flaws created Columbia River in WA  
  by a novice knapper. Priced accordingly during the 1890's

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 14.00
  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

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

  diagonal band running through it's centerline on side B. (photo 3)    

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
