  base Dart point/Knife form. It's very well and thoroughly flaked on Lake Co., OR

A Note On Stockton Points

In this release we have another short run of Stockton points. Stockton points are rare, and are, for the most part isolated to a narrow "band" extending eastward from Contra Costa County to the Stockton area, and slightly southward into San Joaquin County in Northwestern California, and these are seldom offered for sale anywhere!

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
GBFW40 A VERY striking black obsidian Contra Recovered from an old 3500.00
  Costa dart point in just prefect condition ! mound near Sacramento, CA 1500.00

  30% of the original flake's surface while    
  side A is thoroughly and expertly flaked.

DGFW32 A nice black obsidian heavily Northern California - Purchased 225.00
  serrated stemmed Stockton dart from an estate auction where the  
  point which has the bottom-most 5   documentation listing specific site  
  serrations on the right side in photo 2 information was lost; these came   
  non-professionally restored by epoxy from a HUGE Pre-World War II  
    Northern Californian collection   
    and judging by the way the  
    collection was packaged by the  
    finder, it is assumed that he went  
    off to war and never returned  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DGFW33 A fairly large and quite rare Christmas Tree Northern California - Purchased 225.00
  serrated Stockton saw/knife blade having from an estate auction where the  
  damage to 4 serrations on the right side in documentation listing specific site  
  photo 2 (two which are totally missing), a information was lost; these came   
  nick to one side of the base and a slight nick  from a HUGE Pre-World War II  
  to the tip (the Christmas Tree label is my own Northern Californian collection   
  creation, so you won't find this in the books,  and judging by the way the  
  folks) Flaking patterns aren't very spectacular collection was packaged by the  
  and the host stone appears to be of lesser finder, it is assumed that he went  
  quality, making it very difficult to flake off to war and never returned  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DGFW30 A very nice, affordable semi- Northern California - Purchased 150.00
  translucent gray obsidian mini  from an estate auction where the  
  serrated Stockton dart point having documentation listing specific site  
  a nick to one side of the base information was lost; these came   
    from a HUGE Pre-World War II  
    Northern Californian collection

    collection was packaged by the  
    finder, it is assumed that he went  
    off to war and never returned  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DGFW31 An interesting black obsidian corner Northern California - Purchased 125.00
  notched serrated Stockton dart point  from an estate auction where the  
  which has damage to one single serration documentation listing specific site

  left side in photo 2) The finder labeled it's from a HUGE Pre-World War II  
  discovery date as 4/12/34 Northern Californian collection   
    and judging by the way the  
    collection was packaged by the  
    finder, it is assumed that he went  
    off to war and never returned  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
GBFW22 A fairly long, for type, opaque   Recovered from the 225.00
  black obsidian Stockton Corner Hollister mound near 175.00
  notched arrowhead / saw having Verona, CA in 1935  
  somewhat battered and worn    
  serrations. Still quite a rare type    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFW38 A fairly nice, well patinated semi-translucent tri-flow obsidian Northern Side- Recovered from 50.00
  notched Arrowhead which is well flaked on both faces by an intermediate Lake Co., OR  
  knapper and shows good alkali and caliche deposits as a testimony to it's    
  age. It has a slight diagonal clip to the lower corner of one basal tang and a    
  slight spider bite to it's tip. Still a quite attractive and unusual piece    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
TCSFW2 An unusual very light gray and rose colored chert Undocumented, 30.00
  Sudden Series Arrowhead, well flaked on both most likely Arizona  
  faces by an experienced knapper.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
RPFW3 A fully trnslucent obsidian Rose Springs Corner Recovered near Willits, 200.00
  Notched Arrowhead, very well flaked on both Mendocino County, CA,  
  faces by a (near?) master knapper. With the    
  exception of a little bit of irregularity on on the    
  base, this one is as near perfect as they come. Ex: Perino  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFFW23 A semi-translucent obsidian Parman Dart point having thorough flaking Recovered from 55.00
  patterns on both faces with good basal grinding and mineralization. Lake Co., OR 45.00

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW56 A very well formed, vaguely diagonally banded semi-  Recovered in 175.00
  translucent smoky gray obsidian Cascade Saw/Blade Humboldt Co., NV  
  form. It's well flaked on both faces by a fairly advanced    
  knapper with a median ridge on each face. The bottom    
  of the stem is flat from the original striking platform and    
  it's "all there" as originally made. A very nice piece    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
FW24 A slightly under-sized gray-black Found in 45.00
  obsidian Excelsior blade fairly well Napa Co., CA  
  flaked on both faces, with a small     
  section of the original striking platform    
  on the base and a few shallow ledges    
  to the left of center on side A    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
SLFW3 A very attractive opaque black obsidian Offered by the finder 260.00
  serrated Fox Ear arrowhead, thoroughly who recovered this one  
  flaked on both faces and having nice in the Alvord Desert in  
  caliche and mineral deposits on side A Harney Co., OR  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW129 A fairly thin and slender brown jasper Gatecliff Pershing Co., NV 45.00
  dart point having tannic staining on it's lower    
  half. It lost one barb in ancient times, but is still    
  a respectable and well made piece    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW131 A medium-sized smoky gray patinated obsidian Churchill Co., NV 65.00
  Elko Split-stem Arrowhead. It has an ancient    
  clip to the corner of one stem but is otherwise    
  intact with very fine edge serrations.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW132 An asymmetrical (as anciently formed) black Churchill Co., NV 65.00
  obsidian Northern Side-notched Arrowhead    
  of the Fox-eared variety. Just a nice piece    
  with a very sharp needle tip    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW133 A most interesting, slightly undersized (for type) gray obsidian Humboldt  Pershing Co., NV 120.00
  Constricted Base dart point having very nice edge serrations. It's heavily    
  river polished and the thorough flaking patterns are somewhat subdued    
  from the river polish. It has a small flea bite to the very tip of one ear,    
  but is otherwise completely intact as made and anciently used.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW134 A medium-sized duo-flow obsidian Humboldt Constricted-base  Churchill Co., NV 130.00
  Knife form, well flaked on both faces and well used, but having a    
  diagonal dip in the center of side B (photo 4) either from a    
  percussion flake or from the original form of the host stone. One     
  ear was anciently lost. Still an interesting piece which has a vertical    
  band of clear obsidian comprising 25% of it's overall width    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW135 A fairly thin, extremely well flaked on both faces semi- Churchill Co., NV 85.00
  translucent duo-flow obsidian Elko Split-stem Arrowhead    
  having slight diagonal banding. The tip shows ancient re-    
  sharpening which is quite asymmetrical, but the caliche    
  deposits on the flaked area of the tip show that it was    
  anciently worked this way. An exceptional piece    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW139 A fairly thin, semi-translucent horizontal duo-flow obsidian Churchill Co., NV 35.00
  Humboldt Constricted base dart point which is missing the     
  base and has a clip to the tip. It's well flaked on both faces and    
  because of the ancient damage, has been priced accordingly    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW141 A fairly thick and quite crude mottled red and burgundy jasper Pershing Co., NV 35.00
  Humboldt Constricted base Knife form. It has heavy desert    
  polish and is quite an interesting study for it's crudeness alone    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW146 A semi-translucent rootbeer agate Paleo Crescent which also has Humboldt Co., NV 45.00
  white "cherty" sections from the cortex of the original host stone.    
  Flaking patterns are mediocre, and one working end is totally    
  chopped up, I'm almost embarrassed to list this one, but since it's    
  a Paleo piece, it squeaked through and is priced accordingly    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFFW18 An interesting black obsidian Quarry Blank Modoc Co., CA 25.00
  from the Archaic period. It has the typical quarry    
  blank flaking patterns with heavy alkali    
  encrustation, most likely left from hundreds of      
  years of sitting in a dried-up lakebed. It appears to    
  have been used as a knife blade in it's current state.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFFW19 A triangular opaque black obsidian Archaic Quarry Modoc Co., CA 20.00
  Blank which has nice pressure flaking to the edges    
  indicating that it was utilized as a knife blade in the interim    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DFFW20 A pretty nice and well aged Early Archaic obsidian Cascade Knife Blade Modoc Co., CA 85.00
  which was made on a HUGE flake. It has a few slight ledges on side A, but   65.00
  is overall very well made by an advanced knapper who worked the sections    
  he needed at the time. The knapper definitely left his advanced "signature"    
  with the intricate edgework on both faces. The base is a little irregular and it    
  has a few recent edge nicks from improper storage. Still a very worthy and    
  old artifact which would make a great centerpiece in a Far West collection.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
SLFW5 A nice Northern Side-notched Fox Ear Found by the seller in 215.00
  obsidian arrowhead, fairly thin with Owhyee Co., ID  
  thorough flaking patterns on both faces     
  and a spider bite to the tip. Additionally    
  it has nice frosty patina on side B
