Indian arrowheads and other ancient relics from
the Far Western regions which includes the Great Basin

Item: Type: Cascade Butchering Knife Blade Provenance: Price
JAFW41 A fairly thick, sturdy and well formed obsidian Cascade butchering knife Offered by the original 375.00
  form. It's well flaked on both faces with a good combination of direct and finder who recovered  
  indirect percussion flaking patterns coupled with sparse secondary pressure this monster in  
  flaking to the cutting edges. It has a vertical flat section up the centerline of Lake Co., OR  
  side B, left from the outer cortex of the original host stone (photo 4). It has    
  slight roughness to the very end of the base, probably resulting from ancient    
  hafting/usage (photos 5 & 6). Overall, quite an impressive piece which    
  displays well and which shows the early traits of Paleo/Archaic manufacture.    

Item: Type: Pinto Basin Saw Provenance: Price
JAFW44 A very unusual, fairly short (for use) semi-translucent obsidian Pinto Basin Saw Recovered from 125.00
  blade form. It's very thoroughly flaked on both faces by a quite advanced Lake Co., OR  
  knapper, and has nicely serrated edgework for use as a saw. The body retains    
  curvature from the original host stone flake's form (photo 3) and this shows the    
  advanced level of the ancient knapper's skill, as many other pieces made on a    
  curved flake normally don't show the thorough flaking patterns to the concave-    
  curved face which this one has. It has a small spider bite to the tip of one basal    
  tang (right tang in photo 7), but is otherwise a superior example of this type. Stermer COA  

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Blade Provenance: Price
JAFW45 A nice medium-sized Bi-pointed obsidian Cascade Knife form. It shows a good form for a Offered by the original 250.00
  typical "work horse" of a blade, created by a very advanced knapper who knew how to do finder who recovered  
  "only the necessary" to accomplish his purpose. It retains smooth flat areas left from the this beauty in  
  percussion flaking stage in the center of side B (photo 4) and which undoubtedly aided  Lake Co., OR  
  grasping when used as a handheld knife. All cutting edges show advanced secondary pressure    
  flaking patterns as a testimony to this one's repeated use in ancient times. It has a small, 1/8"    
  long lateral nick to a single edge originating from the tip and it also has a "finger rest" vertical    
  dip on side B near the tip (photo 5). A good, solid example of a handheld knife form.    

Item: Type: Pinto Basin Saw Provenance: Price
JAFW48 A fairly thick, sturdy obsidian hafted Pinto Basin Saw blade which has  Recovered from 30.00
  nicely serrated edgework. It shows ancient nicking to one barb as well as Lake Co., OR  
  to the very tips of the basal tangs, but is not in bad condition. Obviously    
  quite a workhorse of a piece which was well used in ancient times.

DAFW705 A drastically worked-down burgundy and green Franciscan Undocumented, but Franciscan 40.00
  chert Wahmuza Knife blade. It's sturdy and thoroughly chert is a California specific  
  flaked on both faces although without any spectacular lithic, so I'd place this one as  
  flaking pattern. Just a well-used work-horse of a blade, coming from NE California  
  which, judging from the width of the base, must have been    
  HUGE in it's prime, and having more than one color in a    
  single artifact made from Franciscan chert is a bit unusual    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
