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

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW117 A fairly thin, well worked black basalt Wendover dart Found in 110.00
  point/blade well flaked on both sides, at least as well Washoe Co., NV  
  as basalt can be flaked.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFW3 An ultra paper-thin dark gray dacite Elko Corner Notched Arrowhead, Recovered in 135.00
  thoroughly flaked on side A with a couple of small steps on knapping-resistant Lake Co., OR  
  areas. Side B retains a 45% flat section in the center, just above the notches    
  and stem (photo 6) from the host stone's outer layer but the outer edges are    
  well knapped. Dacite is not an easy material to work with, so this one has the    
  signature of a very advanced, if not master knapper and despite it's somewhat    
  asymmetrical appearance, this one is "all there" as it was first made and used. Ex: Davidson  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFW7 A heavily alkali encrusted black obsidian Humboldt Constricted Base Dart   Recovered in 125.00
  point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces, although the flaking patterns are Lake Co., OR 2/7 ON-HOLD dl
  somewhat "hidden" by the alkali build-up. It has 4 recent flea-bite sized surface    
  nicks to a single edge near the base (left side of photo 4), but is otherwise     
  completely intact, as it was anciently made and used. Personally I think that the    
  alkali mineralization adds quite a bit of character to this ancient piece. Stermer COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFW8 A semi-translucent obsidian Paleo/Early Archaic Silver Lake Hafted Knife form Recovered in SOLD 3/12
  created on a large flake and retaining some curvature from the original flake's Lake Co., OR  
  form. Side A is thoroughly flaked in a mostly random pattern fashion while side    
  B retains about 60% of the original flake's flat surface and is only pressure    
  flaked on the tip, around both cutting edges and on the base. The basal area     
  has good Paleo grinding and typical obsidian stress lines are still very evident on    
  side B's flat section. This was quite a work horse of a blade, and it's somewhat    
  "fragile" in make-up which makes me wonder how it could have possibly    
  survived the many thousands of years intact. Silver Lake types are fairly scarce. Stermer COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFW9 A decent black obsidian Archaic Fountain Bar single notched Knife form which    Recovered in 24.00
  shows flaking patterns mostly to the edges on side B with more surface flaking Lake Co., OR  
  appearing on side A with the exception of an area which retains the rough    
  reddish outer cortex of the host stone. (near the base in photo 4) The tip is    
  slightly nicked up from ancient usage and it anciently lost the tip of the only barb    
  it had. Made by a lazy intermediate knapper who utilized the stone's flatness left    
  from the initial percussion stage around the basal and hafting area of side B to    
  his advantage when binding this one to it's handle. A fairly scarce item. Ex: Davidson  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW119 A mottled gray and off-white chert Humboldt Constricted  Churchill Co., NV 85.00
  Base dart point well flaked on both faces by an intermediate    
  knapper, and having a vertical "dip" in the center of side B,    
  just above the hafting area left over from a percussion flake    
  in the initial knapping phases    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW120 A nice medium-sized opaque black obsidian Northern Side-notched Churchill Co., NV 40.00
  arrowhead of the Fox Eared variety. It's well flaked on both faces with nice    
  basal thinning but is asymmetrical from ancient damage/salvage. It has a     
  lateral nick to the tip (photos 7 & 9) and a very small lateral fracture to the tip    
  of one barb (left side in photo 2) which follows the entire length of the upper    
  side of the hafting notch. Still not a bad looking piece which displays well    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW121 A nice semi-translucent obsidian Elko Corner- Pershing Co., NV 45.00
  notched arrowhead, well flaked on both faces by    
  an intermediate knapper and having a couple of    
  small steps on side B just above the hafting area.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW123 A pretty nice semi-translucent slightly diagonally banded Churchill Co., NV 75.00
  obsidian Humboldt Basal Notched blade form. It's pretty    
  much "all there" as it was anciently used, although it has a    
  couple of retouch flakes to one cutting edge which gave a     
  concave section to one cutting edge. (left edge in photo 2)    
  Flaking patterns are thorough by an advanced knapper    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW127 A very slender, well worked and well made opaque black Pershing Co., NV 65.00
  obsidian Humboldt Constricted Base dart point which     
  anciently lost the tip of one ear. Flaking patterns are thorough    
  and well done on both faces by an experienced knapper    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
BYFW11 A nice pair of opaque black obsidian Offered by the original finder 25.00

  Parman dart point, made on a large flake and retaining Churchill Co. NV  
  50% of the original flake's flat surface on side B. Side A     
  is thoroughly flaked. It shows traces of having been used    
  as a knife blade and retains a small flat section from the    
  original striking platform on the bottom of the base.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW97 A fairly thin opaque obsidian Northern Side Notched Found in 20.00
  Arrowhead having an ancient clip to one side of the base.  Churchill Co., NV

  Side Notched arrowhead, crudely flaked with heavy Pershing Co., NV 2/16
  desert polish to it's surfaces    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price

  Humboldt Triangular Knife blade form, crudely Pershing Co., NV  
  flaked on both faces and showing river polish    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW113 Now this goofy little point has a lot of character. A semi- Found in 40.00
  translucent, fairly thin, vaguely diagonally banded obsidian Churchill Co., NV  
  Rose Springs Side Notched dart point thoroughly flaked     
  on both faces, although side B is "flat". It has a flea bite to

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW115 A fairly meaty mousy gray obsidian Rose Springs Found in 35.00

  Arrowhead from the Classic through who found this one on his  
  Historic phases, between 200 and 700 ranch in Harney Co., OR  
  years old. Flaking is thorough to both (details to buyer)  
  faces, although it does have slight    
  ancient nicks to the barbs, tip and both    
  corners of the base. Priced accordingly    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DAFW665 An attractive horizontally banded Fort Rock, OR 30.00
  obsidian hafted oval knife blade/scraper.

  brown agate Atlatl Valley    
  Triangular dart point    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW58 A very sexy, nicely desert polished opaque black obsidian  Recovered in 250.00
  Humboldt Constricted Base dart point. It has nice parallel oblique Pershing Co., NV  
  flaking patterns to a median ridge on side A and side B is equally       
  well flaked by a very advanced knapper. It has what appears to    
  be a nick to one edge at the centerline (left side in photo 2) but    
  under microscopic examination it was determined to simply be a    
  slight dig caused by an overly aggressive pressure flaking attempt.    
  It's "all there" as it was made and is a very attractive piece    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
BDFW1 A fairly nice mottled gray and off- Found in 30.00
  white chert Cottonwood Leaf, most Navajo Co., AZ

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JCFW67 A most unusual, fairly broad (for type) black obsidian Recovered in 175.00
  Humboldt Constricted Base dart point made on a large flake. Washoe Co., NV  
  Side A is thoroughly and expertly flaked while less attention

  was probably the result of working down Napa Co., CA

  Constricted Base dart point fairly well flaked on both faces Churchill Co., NV

  well used black obsidian Lerma knife    
  blade. It has a slight ancient nick to one    
  edge, just above the centerline, but is    
  otherwise intact. The "new form" this     
  blade has taken from the obvious ancient    
  re-sharpenings is most fascinating, this    
  was somebody's treasured tool for sure    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
SLFW2 A fairly long black obsidian Wahmuza Offered by the finder who 350.00
  blade having nice oblique transverse  recovered this one in

    during the 1960's  
Click on the Photo set above for an enlarged photo
 
Item: Type: RARE Green Obsidian Triangular Knife blade Provenance: Price
DFFW31 Due to the scarcity of "Green Obsidian" artifacts, I have a VERY sneaky Recovered from 250.00
  suspicion that the ancients who knew about the "green obsidian quarry" SE Oregon  
  kept it quite secret, even to the point of not trading this host material with during the 1960's  
  other tribes, as was normally the custom, at least this is my opinion from    
  what I've seen over many years of experience, and the very few times    
  we've handled Green Obsidian artifacts, which I can count on one hand.     
  This one is well made, and well used judging from the usage wear marks to    
  it's cutting edges and just an outstanding shade of true green. Stermer COA
