Item: Type: Elko Corner Notched Provenance: Price
JAFW76 A nice medium-sized semi-translucent vertically banded duo-flow obsidian Elko Corner Notched Dart Recovered from 75.00
Point which is very well made and thoroughly flaked on both faces by a very advanced knapper. The tip is Harney County, Oregon  
rounded off, probably from an ancient nick, and the very tips of both barbs appear to have slight ancient
nicking. The bottom edge of the base, although somewhat irregular, appears to have been made with the
single "dip" to the edge, possibly by an overly aggressive pressure flaking attempt by the knapper. It also
shows quite minute edge serrations, to what purpose, I haven't a clue, but under microscopic examination,
one edge's serrations (left side in photo 2) show wear marks typical of an item which doubled in use as a
saw blade. Overall, quite an attractive item

SLFW16

OK... I gotta say it... "Which Way Is Up?", I can't honestly tell. At first I thought

that this might have been a dual-purpose Drill and Knife form, but upon closer

examination, this very well could have been a full-form Cascade Bi-pointed blade

which sustained damage to one end and was anciently worked down to leave a

narrow stem for pressure fitting into a bone or wooden handle. The fact that the

 

 

  "drill end" shows different patination (and I examined this area closely, just to

  Quite a meaty and interesting artifact, although created by a less-experienced    

 

knapper. Lastly, it displays significant desert polish to side A.

bit on the rough side, which was probably intentional in order to create a sharp cutting
edge during an era when the secondary pressure flaking technique was unknown
