Item: Type: Jalama Side-Notched Arrowhead Provenance: Price
FW47 A fairly small and quite crude frosty light gray monterey chert Jalama Side- Recovered from the Terrace site, level 2 50.00
notched arrowhead. (Monterey chert artifacts are typically crude owing to the in Santa Cruz County, California 25.00
difficulty with knapping this layered chert material, which is specific to the state
of California and arrowheads made from this material are very rare)

Item: Type: Gatecliff Provenance: Price
FW48 A very sturdy and quite rare (for area) burgundy and green Franciscan chert Gatecliff Recovered from the Tuolome River 85.00
dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces in a mostly random flaking pattern. near Sacramento, California 50.00
The tip was anciently nicked-off (photos 6 & 7) but still a scarce piece for the area of
origin, and Franciscan chert is native to California, not to be found in any other state.

Item: Type: Pair of Early Archaic "Fluted" Bases "sawed" for Hydration Testing Provenance: Price
FW49 A (the larger base has recordings of: NFSJR 3.0 M, which sadly I cannot decipher) Recovered from Bass Lake 40.00
Most likely from the Humboldt family (Sadly, the results of the Hydration dating in Madera County, California 35.00

Item: Type: Gunther Barbed Provenance: Price
FW55 An incredibly paper-thin semi-translucent green Franciscan chert Gunther Barbed Recovered from 250.00
Arrowhead (Shasta style) which has basically "flat" faces with very intricate secondary Shasta County, California 175.00
pressure flaking to its edges, giving it shallow serrated edges. The tip of one barb had the
"appearance" of ancient damage (the shorter tang on the right side in photo 2) but under

Item: Type: Diablo Canyon Side-Notched Provenance: Price
FW60 A fairly long, vertically banded blue-gray and burgundy chert Diablo Canyon Recovered from 30.00
Side-Notched Knife form which appears to have been anciently re-based. Northern California (NFI)
Flaking patterns are greatly subdued owing to the quartz-like characteristics of
the host material. Sort of a "plain Jane" piece in my book, priced accordingly.

Item: Type: Elko Corner Notched Provenance: Price

Item: Type: G10 Northern Side Notched Provenance: Price
RFFW36 YEOW! A VERY thin and superbly made opaque black obsidian Northern Side Notched Recovered from Oregon, 850.00
Arrowhead which is thoroughly and INTRICATELY flaked on both faces by a Master most likely in Lake County
knapper. This one is more than "just all there" with intricate serrated edgework. Davis grades
this one a G10 (perfect point) and I wholeheartedly agree. G10 points are VERY RARE!

Item: Type: G8 Northern Side Notched Provenance: Price
RFFW38 A pretty beefy, medium sized opaque black obsidian Northern Side Notched Dart point/Knife Recovered from Oregon, 850.00
blade showing the "classic form" for this beautiful type. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces by a most likely in Lake County
very advanced knapper who appears to have been "showing off" his skills. I can't totally account
for the G8 grade, except that it appears to have a "clip" from the tip of one basal tang (left side in
photo 4 and 6). Still quite a superb artifact in great condition considering it's substantial antiquity.

Item: Type: Archaic Lanceolate Provenance: Price
RFFW4 An outstanding opaque black obsidian Archaic Lanceolate blade which is thoroughly Recovered from 250.00
flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper. I'm a little bit surprised that it doesn't have Sherman County, Oregon
basal grinding, but this is typical of later Archaic period pieces. From a microscopic
examination, this one appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and used. Ex: Richard Henry

Item: Type: Diablo Canyon Side Notched Knife Form Provenance: Price
SDFW1 An outstanding semi-translucent speckled Monterey chert Diablo Canyon Recovered from 750.00
Side Notched Knife Form which is well flaked on both faces by an Monterey County, CA 350.00
intermediate knapper. It's a good-sized piece made from a most unusual

Item: Type: Bi-pointed Cascade Dagger/Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW57 A slender and thick semi-translucent, somewhat opalescent obsidian bi-pointed Cascade Recovered from Catlow Valley 125.00
Dagger/Knife Blade which is fairly well flaked on both faces by a novice knapper. It retains 2 near French Glenn, Oregon  
percussion flake scars on side B, but all other areas are thoroughly flaked by a novice knapper.
It has very slight ancient nicking to both points. Still a most ancient piece, priced to sell

Item: Type: Bi-pointed Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW58 An extremely crude black basalt bi-pointed Cascade Knife blade which is thoroughly Recovered from 75.00
worked on both faces by an almost intermediate knapper working with a VERY Lake County, Oregon  
inferior host material. It has numerous ledges on both faces where the flaking attempts
terminated. It also shows substantial desert polish and has an ancient nick to the tip.
(photos 5 & 7) Interesting for it's crudeness alone as an ancient stone-age tool.

Item: Type: Nightfire Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW59 A fairly thin (for it's size) and very worked-down black basalt Nightfire Knife Blade which is Recovered from 200.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by an intermediate knapper and which shows good desert Lake County, Oregon  
polish to both faces. The very tip has an ancient spider bite and the bottom of the stem (photos
6 & 8) is "snapped", quite possibly by the snap-base method of knapping manufacture. One
edge (right side in photo 1) shows how ancient re-sharpening modified it's form

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW61 A very attractive glossy black obsidian Cascade Knife Blade which is quite sturdy and a Recovered from the 200.00
little bit on the thick side, created by an intermediate knapper it shows thorough flaking Columbia River in Oregon  
patterns to both faces. Side B is just a tad more rugged than side A, having a couple of
knapping terminating ledges. Side B also has a thin frosty alkali deposit layer from this
ancient beauty setting on the edges of a dried-up lake bed Overall, a nice ancient specimen

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW62 A nice, somewhat thick blue-gray dacite Cascade Knife Blade which is well Recovered from 40.00
flaked on both faces in a random pattern. It has a lateral shear traveling for 1/2" Lake County, Oregon  
from the tip down one edge (right side in photo 1, close up in photos 4 & 6) and
the base is flat, probably as it was made. (photos 5 & 7)

Item: Type: Rose Springs Stemmed Provenance: Price
JAFW66 Now this one's a little sweetheart of a point, a translucent horizontally banded black and Recovered from 30.00
clear obsidian Rose Springs Stemmed Arrowhead which is thoroughly flaked on both faces Lake County, Oregon  
by an intermediate knapper. The form is asymmetrical and it has an ancient nick to the tip,
but the highly unusual banding of the host material still make this one quite a special point
Era: Developmental to Classic Phase - 600 to 1600 years old Ex: Vernon Immell
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Archaic Stemmed Drill Provenance: Price
JAFW69 A very sturdy blue-gray dacite Archaic Stemmed drill which is fairly well flaked Recovered from 65.00
on both faces with more detailed flaking patterns on the working shank. It has a Harney County, Oregon  
nice pressure flute on side A and 2 pressure flutes on side B to facilitate a sturdy
binding to the rotating shaft. This looks to be a heavy duty, work horse of a drill
which appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and used.
Era: Early to Late Archaic Period - 2,650 to 8,000 years old Ex: Paul Davidson

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
JAFW70 A very thin translucent obsidian Columbia Plateau Arrowhead which is well Recovered from the 24.00
flaked on both faces with a needle tip to boot. It has an ancient nick to the base Columbia River in Oregon  
as well as to the tip of one barb. Still not a bad looker for the money
Era: Classic to Historic Phase - 200 to 500 years old Ex: William Ruether
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: Merrybell Provenance: Price
JAFW72 A black river polished obsidian Merrybell Arrowhead which is very well flaked on both Recovered from 40.00
faces by an upper-intermediate knapper and which has a diagonal hafting stop ledge on Lake County, Oregon  
side B (photo 4) The edge of the basal bulb is irregular from ancient chipping and the
tips of the barbs are also anciently nicked. I think that the most interesting feature of this
piece is the difference in patination from side a to side B. Quite an ancient piece

Item: Type: Cascade Shouldered Dart Point Provenance: Price
JAFW73 A nice semi-translucent obsidian Cascade Shouldered Dart point which is Recovered from 75.00
thoroughly if not intricately flaked on both faces by an advanced knapper. Lake County, Oregon  
It has an ancient flea bite to the tip and a slight ancient nick to one corner
of the base, but is still a most attractive artifact

Item: Type: Archaic Stemmed Drill Provenance: Price
JAFW75 Now this one's pretty neat. A semi-translucent obsidian Archaic Stemmed Drill Recovered from 35.00
which shows minimal working to the basal area, but quite intricate flaking Harney County, Oregon  
patterns to the working shaft. The very tip has a very slight lateral nick, but other
than that, this one appears to be intact, as it was anciently made and used

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
