couple of ancient nicks to the bottom edge of one basal tang. (right side in photo 2) Still a desirable
arrowhead which would have easily served it's purpose for bringing down larger game animals.

Item: Type: Elko Provenance: Price
JCFW147 A nice, medium-sized fully translucent obsidian Elko dart point which was Recovered from 85.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by a determined intermediate knapper. Despite the Churchill Co., NV
knapper's best efforts, side A has a section below the horizontal centerline which
resisted flaking attempts, leaving multiple shallow "steps" on this face. The basal
edge is a bit ragged and asymmetrical from ancient damage. Priced accordingly

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Blade Provenance: Price
JCFW152 A nice medium-sized black basalt Cascade Knife Blade which is quite crude, created by a Recovered from Cow Lake, 75.00
novice knapper. Side A shows very crude flaking patterns by a very novice knapper with in Malheur Co., Oregon
multiple "ledges" while side B is essentially "un-worked", showing only slight secondary pressure
flaking patterns to one edge. Still a good example of a most ancient tool and priced accordingly

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Blade Provenance: Price
JCFW153 A fairly large (for type) black basalt Cascade Knife Blade which was almost reduced Recovered from 75.00
down to a "drill-form" through ancient re-sharpenings. The flaking patterns are quite Washoe Co., NV
crude, because the host basalt material really doesn't "flake" well during the knapping
process. The very tip was anciently nicked off, and it has nicking to one edge at the point
where the hafting line descends towards the base. (right side in photo 2) Quite a crude
artifact, but the "crudeness" is it's "charm" and the fact that this one was an "artifact in
transition" is also an interesting study in the ancients' way of life. Bargain priced!

Item: Type: Parman Provenance: Price
JCFW154 A fairly long and HUGE (for type) quite flat black basalt Parman which shows Recovered from SOLD
thorough paleo flaking patterns on both faces, although the patterns are somewhat Washoe Co., NV 7/27
subdued, partially owing to the host material and partially owing to what appears
to be river polish. It lost one barb in ancient times and shows slight roughness to
one edge (right edge near the tip in photo 2) either caused by being bounced
around in a creek or river, or from intentional usage wear when it might have
"doubled" as a knife blade. A most interesting specimen for this particular type.

Item: Type: Northern Side-notched "Pendant" Provenance: Price
JCFW155 A slender, somewhat under-sized (for type) semi-translucent obsidian Northern Side-notched "Pendant" which Recovered from 75.00
is thoroughly flaked on side A to a median ridge but having lesser flaking patterns on side B. Originally made on Western Nevada
a curved flake, this specimen shows an extremely "bowed" form. (See photo 3) With the "heavy" bow-shape, it
doesn't make sense to me that this piece could have possibly been functional as an arrowhead. Common sense
dictates that "IF" it were used as an arrowhead projectile point, due to it's "bowed form" it would have snapped
at it's mid-section prior to any penetration of the intended target... thus, I think that this one was actually a
"pendant", worn possibly by an ancient warrior as a "good luck" charm, or possibly by an ancient flint knapper
as an advertisement for his trade. It certainly displays superior craftsmanship worthy of "advertising"

Item: Type: Elko Eared Provenance: Price
JCFW156 A fairly nice opaque black obsidian Elko Eared Arrowhead which is well made by Recovered from SOLD
an intermediate knapper and which shows very good symmetry. It's fairly thin and Western Nevada 7/13
shows good flaking patterns to both faces, although it has a shallow ledge on side B
which terminates with a "nipple", best seen on the right side of photo 3, just above
the horizontal centerline. It has a couple of slight ancient nicks to one edge (left edge

JCFW157 A fairly slender, well made semi-translucent obsidian Elko Split Stem Recovered from SOLD
Arrowhead which has faint diagonal banding. Both faces show thorough flaking Western Nevada 7/13
patterns by an experienced knapper. It's "all there" as it was anciently made and
it has only 1 single flaw, which is a slight semi-circular cut from one edge (right
edge in photo 4 just above the horizontal centerline) caused by an overly
aggressive pressure flaking attempt. Still a very nice piece for the money
