Item: Type: Klickitat Provenance: Price
BHCR47 A very thin and well made semi-translucent red and yellow agate Klickitat Arrowhead. It's Recovered from the Columbia River near 150.00
thoroughly flaked on side A and has an interesting "dip" in the center of side A extending The Dalles, OR by Vance Van Den
from the stem to just above the hafting area which was intended to act as a pressure-fit Driessche during the 1960's to 1970's
hafting stop. Side B is fairly well flaked but has a diagonal flat spot on the right side, left
from the initial trimming stages of manufacture. The point of the diamond base was
anciently damaged and is missing. It also has a spider bite to the tip of one barb (left side in
photo 4) Still, Klickitat points are scarce, and doubly so in this exotic material

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR48 An ultra-thin extremely well made light gray chert Columbia Plateau Arrowhead Recovered from the Columbia 125.00
which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a master knapper. It has flea bites to River in Washington (NFI)
the very tips of both barbs but is otherwise "all there" and a choice piece.

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
BHCR49 A fairly thin red, pink and brown jasper Rabbit Island Arrowhead which is well flaked on both Recovered from the 135.00
faces by an advanced knapper. The very tip of the base is flat as is the very tip of one tang, Columbia River in Oregon
remnants of the host stones outer layer. This piece is "all there" as it was anciently made and
used, and is a very aesthetically pleasing point Ex: Daryl Baker

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR50 A most interesting, colorful purple, white and red chert Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which is Recovered from the 120.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by an (upper) intermediate knapper. The stem has some chipping Columbia River in Oregon (NFI)
to it's very end, but other than that this one is "all there" as it was anciently made and used

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
BHCR51 A paper-thin, highly attractive pink and red agate Rabbit Island Arrowhead Recovered on the Columbia 125.00
which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a very advanced knapper. It has a River in Washington prior to
very very small ancient diagonal nick to one corner of the stem, but is otherwise 1920 by Dr. Byron Marshall and
"all there". An exceptional point! his wife near Vernita, WA

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
BHCR52 At first sight, this one appears to be a plain Jane piece, but held to a light source it reveals Recovered on the Columbia 115.00
the beauty of the clear and brown agate host material. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces, River in Washington prior to
but not in any particularly impressive pattern, by a (barely) intermediate knapper. It's 1920 by Dr. Byron Marshall and
strongest point is that it's "all there", which is a miracle in and of itself for points coming his wife near Vernita, WA
from the Columbia River, where most were tossed around and damaged Ex: Townsend

Item: Type: Rose Springs Provenance: Price
BHCR53 A nice medium-sized semi-translucent obsidian Rose Springs Arrowhead, well flaked on Recovered from 35.00

Item: Type: Rose Springs Provenance: Price
BHCR54 An ultra paper-thin fully translucent obsidian Rose Springs Arrowhead which is quite long Found by Creighton Perry 85.00
for the type and expertly made. Flaking patterns are thorough on both faces, made by a Horton during the 1960's to
very advanced knapper. (The thinness alone suggests a master knapper, but the flaking 1970's at Klamath Lake in
patterns lack the refinement of a true master knapper) Sadly this little gem anciently lost Harney Co., OR
the tip of one barb, but it's still a very interesting study in advanced knapping capabilities

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
BHCR61 A very nice, well made purple chert Rabbit Island Arrowhead which is Found by Les Packer on the 65.00

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
BHCR62 A fairly thin translucent rootbeer agate Rabbit Island Arrowhead which is thoroughly Found by Ralph Groom between Salem 40.00
flaked on both faces by a very experienced knapper. It has slight ancient nicks to the and Albany, OR during the 1960's
very tip of both barbs and has a tick bite from the tip, but is still a very attractive item

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
BHCR64 A somewhat sturdy, semi-translucent orange agate Rose Springs Arrowhead Found by Daryl Baker on the lower 75.00
which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by an intermediate knapper. This one is Columbia River in Washington
"all there" as it was anciently made and used, and is quite an attractive piece

Item: Type: Wallula Gap Provenance: Price
BHCR65 A fairly large (for type) burgundy and red chert Wallula Gap Arrowhead which is Recovered from 100.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by an experienced knapper, basically to the median Sauvies Island, OR
ridge. It has an ancient nick to the tip of one barb (right barb in photo 2) and an ancient
spider bite to the tip, both of which are pretty unnoticeable. An attractive piece
Era: Developmental to Historic Phase - 200 to 1000 years old
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Snake River Dart Point Provenance: Price
BHCR66 A nice, well formed and broad brown chert Snake River Arrowhead which is Found on the Snake River 75.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by an upper-intermediate knapper. The corner at American Falls, ID
notches on this beauty are quite deep, and perhaps I sold the ancient knapper
too short, as this was obviously his own "special talent". Unfortunately, the very
tip is gone, damaged in ancient times, as is the very tip of one barb (right barb in
photo 2) but this is still one very attractive and well made ancient artifact

Item: Type: Eastgate Provenance: Price
BHCR67 A very thin opaque black obsidian Eastgate Arrowhead which is thoroughly Recovered from the Columbia 40.00
flaked on both faces by a very advanced knapper. The flaking patterns on this River in Oregon (NFI)
one are simply outstanding! It has an unfortunate ancient clip to the tip of one
tang and the very tip is "irregular", probably by slight ancient damage.

Item: Type: Quilomene Bar Provenance: Price
BHCR68 An absolutely GORGEOUS, very broad and well made mottled purple and brown chert Found by Daryl Baker in the mid 1950's to 1960's 125.00
Quilomene Bar Dart point. (Michel's SOP calls this a Hells Canyon Dart, while the Stermer on the lower Columbia River in Oregon
COA lists it as being a Quilomene Bar... sorry Rod... but I have to agree with Stermer)
Flaking patterns are very thorough and impressive on both faces. It has an ancient lateral
shear to the bottom of one tang (right side in photo 2) but is otherwise "all there". Rod Michel SOP (copy)

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR69 A very small and delicate purple chert Columbia Plateau Birdpoint Arrowhead which shows quite a bit of Found by Raymond Vietzien on the 50.00
tannic staining from it's stay in the river. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces by a near-master knapper. Columbia River in Washington during
The tip has a slight angle to it, but from microscopic examination, this one appears to be "all there" the early 1950's

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR70 A very small and delicate light gray and off-white diagonally banded chert Columbia Plateau Birdpoint Arrowhead Found by Don Goodhue in 65.00

appears to be "all there", as it was anciently made and used. Just a Great little gem of a point

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR73 A very small, thin and delicate brick red chert Columbia Plateau Birdpoint Arrowhead Recovered from the Columbia 45.00
which is well flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper and which has the neatest, River in Oregon (NFI)
intricate edge serrations. The tip to one barb (left side in photo 2) is flat... doesn't look like a
nick under the microscope, but I could be wrong. Still an attractive little jewel of a point Ex: Daryl Baker

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR74 A very small, paper-thin and delicate brown jasper Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which Recovered from 60.00

one of it's split-stems and a tick bite to the very tip. Still an awesome little piece

Item: Type: Cascade Shouldered Knife Provenance: Price
BHCR75 A highly attractive dark brown chert Cascade Shouldered Knife Blade having black Found by Ralph Groom on the Columbia River 225.00
speckles throughout. It was made on a large flake and retains a 25% flat spot on between Priest Rapids and Wenatchee, WA
side B just above the horizontal centerline (photo 4) Side A is thoroughly and sometime between the 1950's to 1970's
expertly flaked with extremely minute secondary pressure flaking along it's edges.

Item: Type: Eastgate Provenance: Price
BHCR76 A very colorful mottled pink, burgundy and tan chert Eastgate Arrowhead which was made on a flake and retains Found by Lee Miner at the 75.00
15% of the original flake's flat surface on side B, extending from the base to just above the hafting line. Side A is fairly Wakemap Mound site on the
well flaked by an almost intermediate knapper, but this side retains a flat section which begins at the bottom of the Columbia River in Washington
base and runs to just above the hafting line. This "flat section" increases in thickness as it travels upwards, and looks to
be a most ingenious technique for establishing a nice, "wedged" hafting to the arrowshaft. I gave this one a thorough
microscopic examination, and the only "damage" I can see is what appears to be a lateral shearing to the end of one
tang (right side in photo 2) which "might" have been caused by the knapper himself. Still quite a unique piece

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR77 A very small, paper-thin and delicate red chert Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which is well flaked Found by Lee Miner at the 50.00

Item: Type: Eastgate Provenance: Price
BHCR78 A VERY large (at least the largest one I've ever seen of this type) mottled red and light Recovered from the Columbia 250.00
brown chert Eastgate Dart Point, made on a HUGE flake and retaining 80% of the River in Kittitas Co., WA (NFI)
original flake's flat surface on side B, where it is only minimally flaked around the edges.
Side A is more thoroughly flaked, although not in any particularly impressive pattern by a
barely intermediate knapper. This one's main claim to fame is it's color and it's size

Item: Type: Wallula Gap Provenance: Price
BHCR79 A fairly sturdy mottled red w/ black banding petrified wood Wallula Gap Arrowhead. Found by Lee Miner on the 150.00

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
BHCR80 A nice medium sized semi-translucent diagonally banded pink agate Columbia Found by Kelly Anderson on the 95.00
Plateau Arrowhead. Side A is well flaked by an intermediate knapper, while side Klickitat River in Washington
B is only flaked around it's edges with the center (approx. 40% of the surface
area) being flat. The barbs are asymmetrical, but this is just the way it was made

BHCR84 A very classy vertically banded semi-translucent petrified wood Plateau Pentagonal Knife blade which Found by Les Packer at the 200.00
is mostly flaked only around it's cutting edges with the center sections retaining much of the outer Wakemap Mound site on the
cortex roughness typical with petrified wood artifacts. The very tip has a lateral nick as does one Columbia River in Washington

Item: Type: Classic Eastgate Provenance: Price
BHCR88 A fairly attractive "Classic" Eastgate Arrowhead which is quite thin and well flaked on Recovered from the Columbia River 45.00
both faces, although not in any particularly advanced pattern. It's a bit asymmetrical near Vantage, WA during the 1960's

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 40.00
  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.

  stem" appearance, and a substantial fire-pop to side B, just above

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 30.00
  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.

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 35.00
  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
