Item: Type: Samantha Dart Point Provenance: Price
ELGP1 YIKES!... Now here's a point to get excited about. It's the absolute best petrified wood point Found in 650.00
that we've ever seen, bar none, and we're honored to be able to offer this one to the collecting Sue County, Nebraska
community. It's an almost paper thin diagonally banded translucent petrified wood Samantha
Dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by an obvious Master Knapper. It's flawless
and easily a G10+ point. Furthermore, petrified wood is an extremely hard and most difficult
host material to knap, so, combined with the skills of a master knapper, the creator must also
have had extreme luck in finding a co-operative host stone from this gorgeous material. A detailed
microscopic examination verifies that this one is as perfect and as fresh as the day it was made. Ex: Bob Roth
Era: Late Archaic Period - 1,500 to 2,200 years old (although the Jackson Ex: Albert Bellgardt
  COA lists the period as "Developmental", the over-lapping ages still agree) Jackson COA

Desert Side-Notched Arrowhead which has perfect symmetry. It's thoroughly the Klamath Marsh in Klamath County, Oregon

the duo-flow obsidian give this piece a strong resemblance to moss agate.

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

Item: Type: Northern Side Notched Provenance: Price
DFGP4 A HIGHLY unusual, multi-colored pink, blue, white, beige and burgundy Silicified wood

Found during the early 1900's

500.00
Northern Side Notched Arrowhead which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a more in Minidoka Co., ID 450.00
than just experienced knapper. At first I thought that it had slight lateral nicks to the
corners of the base as well as to the tip of one barb above the notch (right side in photo
4) but under microscopic examination, these appear to simply be part of the knapper's
technique. Needless to say, I have to label this one as VERY RARE, because
somewhere around 98% of ALL Northern Side Notched points were made from
obsidian, and personally I've never seen this type in such a colorful and attractive material

thoroughly flaked on both faces by one of the best master knappers we've ever near the Snake River
seen. It has 2 small indentations along one edge (left side in photo 4) caused by
the initial manufacturing of this beauty. Truly a gem of a point which appears to
be "all there" and as fresh as the day it was made.

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
CHGP1 A (mostly) paper-thin mottled brown, red and gray petrified wood Unclassified Corner- Found in 250.00
notched Arrowhead created by a master knapper. Petrified wood is one of the most difficult Polk Co., TX
materials to knap, not only because of the hardness of the host material, but also because of (Offered by the
the unpredictability of the layered sections with petrified wood. The creator of this beauty original finder)
managed to thoroughly flake both faces, with especially intricate and detailed patterns
around the edges, leaving shallow serrated edgework. The base was anciently snapped,
most likely as part of the normal manufacturing process and it's single flaw is a "dip" in the
center of the face on side B, caused by a rougher layer in the host stone, and leaving a
noticeable horizontal "step" at the centerline of this piece. (indicated by the red arrow in the 
4th photo above.) Still one of the best petrified wood pieces we've ever seen! It dates to the
late Archaic-Woodland eras between 2,000 and 3,500 years old, by artifact association
from the same site. (It resembles the Catahoula type, but is from a much earlier time period)

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAGP4 An outstanding, paper-thin reddish-mahogany obsidian Eastgate  Recovered from 125.00
Arrowhead thoroughly flaked on both faces with the exception of Lake Co., OR

very minute edge serrations and the bottom edge of the base is
"irregular", but it's "all there" as it was made.

Rose Springs Stemmed dart point fairly well flaked on Churchill Co., NV
both faces to a median ridge by a novice knapper. It
has a "hooked" appearance to it's tip, which I thought
was a nick, but upon microscopic examination, it
appears that this is just the way it was made

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
DAGP677 A semi-tranlucent multi-colored (red, orange Recovered in 50.00
