Item: Type: Tube Pipe Provenance: Price
JCIP1 A very nice and very rare speckled green-black polished steatite Tubular Pipe which is in great Recovered from 500.00
condition with one exception. It has a fracture line running diagonally downwards from the top Humboldt Co., NV
lip of the pipe for a distance of 5/8". This fracture line is "through and through" (visible on the
inside of the pipe as well as the outside surface) but doesn't appear to have actually separated
from the pipe, as evidenced by undisturbed mineralization in the "cracks" valley. (See the
enlarged photos which detail this minor flaw) Still a great and rare item coming from Nevada.
  Era: Developmental Phase - 700 to 1,600 years old

Item: Type: Reed Pipe Provenance: Price
JCIP2 A highly unusual reddish volcanic rock Reed Pipe which is in perfect condition, despite it's Recovered from 150.00
crude appearance, having been manufactured from a highly porous igneous host material. It Pershing Co., NV
has anciently ground incised lines running all around its circumference and a most unusual
incised "ridged pattern" to both ends. It's crude in its appearance, but that's really it's "charm"
as an ancient relic. I've never seen another which even remotely resembles this piece.

RPIP1 A VERY striking, and very rare dark brown and greenish-gray hematite Southwest Recovered near 1500.00

otherwise in exquisite condition. I've seen these from California, but this is the first
one we've ever handled from the southwestern regions. Quite a piece of artwork

Item: Type: High Plains Elbow Pipe (Sioux/Crow) Provenance: Price
MAIP1 A very well formed and quite scarce black soapstone High Plains Elbow Undocumented, 425.00

some slight ancient usage chipping/wear around the mouth piece and bowl
areas. It has a small vertical hole near the base of the bowl where it joins
the stem of the mouthpiece from a mis-drilled hole. (Dang shame after all
the effort which probably went into making this one up to that point!)
