Item: Type: Jeff Provenance: Price
RPPA31 A nice medium sized mottled gray chert Paleo Jeff Point which shows typical rustic Paleo flaking to Recovered in Kentucky (NFI) 300.00
both faces. It's fairly thin and well made with a surface "shear" to one corner of the base. (right side
in photo 3 as well as in photos 6, 7 and 8) An interesting and very ancient piece, priced to sell

Item: Type: Clovis Provenance: Price
RPPA32 A fairly large, for type, mottled gray and brown chert Clovis Knife form which has Found near Paris, Tennessee 875.00
thorough percussion flaking to both faces coupled with extensive secondary pressure
flaking patterns to it's cutting edges. Additionally it has a spokeshave worked into
one edge at the blade's mid-point, making it a dual purpose tool. It has basal grinding
and shallow pressure fluting on both sides. One corner of the base shows ancient
nicking, but basically this one is "all there" as it was anciently made and used.

Item: Type: Plainview Provenance: Price
RPPA33 A most interesting brick red quartzite Plainview Dart point which is fairly well flaked on Recovered from 350.00
both faces, although the flaking patterns are greatly subdued, owing to the nature of the Red River County, Texas
host material as well as to substantial weathering over the ages. The basal areas are
thoroughly ground and this one appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and used.

Item: Type: Agate Basin Provenance: Price
RPPA34 A highly attractive and very well made blue chert Agate Basin point which is thoroughly Recovered from 350.00
flaked on both faces to a median ridge by a very accomplished ancient knapper. It has Kerr Lake, Oklahoma
a small ancient diagonal nick to the tip and slight usage wear marks to it's edges, but is

Item: Type: Belen Dart Point Provenance: Price
RPPA35 A very attractive, quite small and well made butterscotch chert Belen Dart Point Found by Ray Rixey near 450.00
which is well formed and throughly flaked on both faces. It has good paleo Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
grinding to all of it's basal edges and is essentially "all there" as it was anciently
made. Just a nice little piece of Paleo history

Item: Type: Early Ovoid Knife Provenance: Price
RPPA36 An interesting and obviously well used light gray flint Early Ovoid Knife Blade Recovered from 275.00
which is well flaked on both faces, mostly by the ancient direct percussion method Mason County, Texas
with secondary pressure flaking to resharpen and "rough up" the edges to give them
better cutting properties. Quite a scarce piece, seldom seen for sale anywhere

Item: Type: Agate Basin Provenance: Price
RPPA37 A very slender, long and very well made mottled light gray and tan chert Agate Basin Recovered from 500.00
Blade which is thoroughly and expertly flaked on both faces with oblique transverse St. Clair County, Illinois
flaking patterns. Obviously created by a master knapper, it has only 2 flaws; one is a
very small "pit" on side B near the tip (right side in photo 4) and the other is that it
has a small corner section of the base restored by Greg Perino. (red marked sections
in photos 5, 6 and 7) Still quite an exceptional piece which is reasonably priced.

Item: Type: Agate Basin Blade Provenance: Price
RPPA38 A very rustic, quite broad and sturdy mottled brown jasper Agate Basin Knife Recovered from Keystone Lake 175.00
Blade which is embedded with many minuscule crystalline sections. It's thoroughly in Osage County, Oklahoma
flaked on both faces, although the flaking patterns are quite crude and "old school",
from the Paleo period. It shows ancient usage wear around its tip and has an
ancient nick to one corner of the base. This one is a prime example of the sort of
knife blade carried and used by the very first inhabitants of North America.

Item: Type: Hi-Lo Dart Point Provenance: Price
RPPA39 A very interesting brown and bluish-white chert Hi-Lo Dart point. It shows Recovered from 400.00
somewhat crude flaking patterns to both faces with additional pressure-flaked Pittsburg County, Oklahoma
edgework. It has a serious impact fracture to the tip, which was partially re-
worked to keep this one in service. An interesting example of a rare point type

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RPPA40 A most interesting green and brown chert Midland Dart point which was re- Recovered from 350.00
cycled from a larger point type. It has pressure fluting from the base of side B Cass County, Texas
and a circular depression in the very center of side B, left over from a percussion
flake to the original point's surface. The side edges show slight grinding near the
base. A slightly cruder form of this normally well-developed type.

Item: Type: Agate Basin Dart Provenance: Price
PA1143 An attractive (cute, even) mottled pink, burgundy and light blue-gray chert Found by Stacy Sievers on the 75.00
Agate Basin Dart point which appears to be in it's final useful life span before Skunk River in Lowell, Iowa 50.00
reaching the point of exhaustion from ancient re-sharpenings. This is one of
the smallest examples we've ever seen for this point type. It's well flaked on
both faces, although in an amateurish way on side B. Still a desirable piece.

Item: Type: Plains Clovis Provenance: Price
MBPA20 Here we have one of the absolute finest and most colorful Clovis points we've ever had the Recovered from 23,500.00
privilege to handle. It's an outstanding semi-translucent diagonally banded white and sky-blue Southern Wyoming 17,500.00
petrified wood fluted Clovis Dart point which is thoroughly flaked on both faces, to a median ridge
on side A, while side B is more on the "flat side", but still having good, thorough flaking patterns and
excellent secondary pressure flaking edgework. The very tip has a minute ancient "nibble" and the
blade edges show signs of ancient re-sharpening while this was still hafted. It has 3 pressure flaked
flutes on side A, which terminate in a solid hafting stop. Side B also has 3 shorter pressure flaked
flutes ending with a very shallow hafting stop and the basal edge was additionally pressure flaked to
obscure the origin of the flutes originating points. The basal area is lightly ground. This is the first
time this one has been publicly offered for sale and is a real Gem among the Paleo Clovis family.

Item: Type: Paleo Knife Provenance: Price
PA1135 A LARGE deep mottled blue and light brown Coshocton chert Paleo knife blade having Recovered from 350.00
a ground base and having a nice display of various flaking patterns from percussion to Scioto County, Ohio 275.00
pressure flaking. From all indications, this one was most likely a pre-form, possibly for a
LARGE Clovis point, which was utilized as a knife blade in the interim.

Item: Type: Clovis Knife Provenance: Price
RFPA6 A somewhat "ragged" green and tan flint Clovis Knife Blade which is well Recovered from 400.00

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RFPA7 A stubby dark gray fossiliferous chert Midland Dart point which is pretty well "spent". Recovered from SOLD
It shows great paleo transverse flaking patterns on both faces and still retains it's paleo Lincoln County, Nebraska 1/14
basal grinding. The tip shows an impact "break" which was most likely the "final straw"
  which determined this most ancient artifact's retirement as a useful weapon.

Item: Type: Agate Basin Provenance: Price
DIPA2 A truly outstanding and very colorful diagonally banded mottled light gray and tan Recovered from 600.00
Coshocton chert Agate Basin. Flaking patterns are thorough on both faces in the old Bloomingrove Township in
Paleo style. The base has a diagonal flat section (photo 6) which is actually the original Richland County, Ohio
cortex from the first platform strike. This is one of the best and certainly the most
colorful Agate Basin we've every handled and Agate Basin points are rare in Ohio.

Item: Type: Browns Valley Knife Form Provenance: Price
RFPA2 An absolutely GORGEOUS and very beefy mottled brown and tan jasper Browns Valley Recovered from 850.00
Knife blade having a yellowish-off white patina extending from the base and covering 80% Cheyenne County, Kansas
of the surface on side A. (photo 1) It's flaked on both surfaces in the old Paleo tradition and
appears to have what would normally be termed an "impact fracture" from one face at the
tip (see photo 5), but with the (my) assumption that this was a knife, and not a flying dart
point, this was most likely chipped during normal usage. Just an outstanding Paleo point!

Item: Type: Browns Valley Knife Form Provenance: Price
RFPA3 A medium gray chert Paleo Browns Valley Knife blade which is well flaked on both faces in Recovered from the East Fork on the 250.00
the old Paleo style. It appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and used, although White River near Portersville, Indiana
the tip of one auricle is flat, as it retains the outer flat surface of the original host stone.

Item: Type: Paleo Hafted Hide Scraper Provenance: Price
RFPA4 A very large (for type) semi-translucent light brown agate hafted Paleo hide scraper which is Recovered on the Dismal River 250.00

Item: Type: Agate Basin Provenance: Price
RFPA8 A highly attractive dark reddish-brown jasper Agate Basin blade which is well Recovered from the Snake River 650.00
flaked on both faces in the old Paleo style. The surface itself is unusually "clean" in Cherry County, Nebraska
of ground debris, which leads me to believe that this one must have lived under
the sand for thousands of years. It shows very slight ancient usage marks to the
very tip and has good basal grinding as well. Quite a superior specimen.

Item: Type: Agate Basin Provenance: Price
RPPA27 A somewhat thick and sturdy mottled dark gray and black chert Agate Basin Dart Point which is Recovered from Hoyt Bottom 250.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces, although the HEAVY river polish has subdued the flaking patterns, below Eufaula Dam, OK
especially on side B. It has heavy duty basal grinding and the tip was rounded off from ancient usage,
even before it's extended bath and subsequent river polishing. An interesting and VERY old piece

Item: Type: Paleo Butterfly Crescent Provenance: Price
DFPA8 A somewhat rustic (from ancient use) dark blue-gray and brown chert Paleo Butterfly Found in Prineville, Crook Co., 110.00
Crescent which is thoroughly flaked on both faces. It has a more recent nick to one corner Oregon during the 1920's
(bottom corner in photo 6) and a substantial amount of usage wear, especially to it's top edge
(right side in photo 2) which only serve to add to this most ancient artifact's "character". Think
about it, this little stone tool was actually extensively used more than 10,000 years ago!

Item: Type: Alberta Provenance: Price
DFPA10 A VERY meaty opaque black obsidian Alberta Knife form which is thoroughly flaked Found in Prineville, Crook Co., 250.00
on both faces by a very experienced knapper. It's a beauty, but sadly the bottom of the Oregon during the 1920's 225.00
base was sheared off in ancient times. Still a great example of this somewhat rare type
