Paleo Page 3 Page 1  Page 2  
This page contains ancient Native American Indian arrowheads and other artifacts from the Paleo time era.
(9,000 years ago to 14,000 years ago) This was the VERY FIRST period during which the Native
American Indians populated "the new world". To reserve any arrowhead on this page, simply note the
arrowheads ID number and send an email to Terry Baxter: tbaxter999@gmail.com

Item: Type: Clovis Provenance: Price
MCPA2 A well made mottled sky blue and light gray Fort Payne chert Clovis Dart Recovered near 900.00
  point which is still a gorgeous piece, despite the ancient tip damage. The  Huntsville, AL Reduced!
  tip has a diagonal "cut" which was "possibly" caused by an impact fracture,   550.00
  although the tip damage looks more like it was chipped in ancient times     
  and then re-worked with pressure flaking to one face, possibly to be used    
  as a slitting knife tool, before it was anciently repaired. (which it never    
  was, Perino's COA shows the ancient pressure flaking to this    
  broken/refurbished area.) It's very well flaked on both faces and has an    
  excellent fair-sized flute to each face. It has great basal grinding and is still     
  a great looking most ancient piece with no flaws other than the tip section,    
  which might not be flawed at all, from the ancient's standpoint, having been Breckinridge COA  
  reworked for use. Perino COA  

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RHPA57 A nice and meaty medium-tan flint Paleo Midland Dart point / knife form  Recovered in 500.00
  which is thoroughly flaked in the Paleo style of horizontal percussion to a SE Missouri  
  median ridge on both faces. It has a small section which was anciently    
  damaged along one cutting edge, and I won't insult your intelligence by    
  trying to pass this off as a "spoke shave" as others do, this damaged area    
  although not recent, appears to have happened in an age slightly more    
  recent than the artifact's original creation. It has a small very ancient nick    
  to the tip of one corner of the base and it has nice basal thinning and good    
  basal grinding. Just an overall attractive Paleo piece with "character".    

Item: Type: Folsom Provenance: Price
RHPA58 A fairly thin mottled blue flint Folsom Dart point which shows traits of   Recovered near SOLD 9/3
  multiple ancient re-sharpenings by pressure flaking to the edges which Ft. Smith, AR  
  have crossed over the fluting ridgelines, causing the fluting areas to be    
  somewhat less defined. It lost one auricle in ancient times, but is    
  otherwise intact, as it was used long ago and is still a very rare item. Rogers COA  

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RHPA59 A very nice, fairly small (for type) semi-translucent chalcedony Midland Dart  Provenance was SOLD 9/3
  point showing flaking patterns to a median ridge on side A, while side B is flatter undocumented but this  
  in cross-section with horizontal flaking patterns. It does have micro-edgework, was judged to be a   
  as is typical for Midland points, although the micro-edgework is somewhat  Texas/New Mexico type  
  subdued, owing to the nature of the host stone. It has good paleo basal grinding by Jackson  
  which travels up each edge past the horizontal centerline and the very tip of one    
  auricle was anciently lost. Still a good looking and rare Paleo piece. Jackson COA  

Item: Type: Clovis Provenance: Price
RHPA60 A nice, broad creamy white with blue-gray spots chert Clovis Dart point  Recovered in 200.00
  showing a single short percussion flute on side A and two longer, but shallow Decator Co., GA  
  percussion flutes on side B. I can't begin to guess the original host stone    
  material nor color, although I suspect that it was quite a bit darker than what    
  is now apparent, and I personally think that the entire outer white surface is    
  the result of thousands of years of patina build-up. It has light basal grinding    
  and lost one auricle in ancient times. The flaking patterns aren't anything to    
  write home about, although they were evidently enough to get the job done,    
  and are definitely Paleo by trait. Overall, not a bad Paleo piece.    

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RHPA61 A fairly small semi-translucent honey colored agate Midland Dart Provenance undocumented other than most 300.00
  point. The entire surface appears to have been heavily desert likely from the San Luis Valley area in  
  polished which, in addition to the nature of the host stone, subdued Texas deduced from finder's hunting areas  
  the flaking patterns to a fair degree. It has good basal grinding with    
  a somewhat irregular concave base and the auricles appear to be    
  intact as anciently made and used. An attractive little dart point. Bob Knowlton Paper  

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RHPA62 A very nice, fairly thin chocolate brown jasper Paleo Midland Dart Recovered in Texas SOLD 9/3
  point which has excellent Paleo horizontal transverse percussion    
  flaking on both faces. It has good and typical Midland paleo grinding    
  which travels up both edges about 2/3rds of the way from the base.    
  The base is well formed with basal thinning pressure flaking on both    
  faces. The only negative trait this most ancient piece has is the ancient    
  damage to the tip, which is not all that bad. (photos 6 & 8) Rogers COA  

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RPPA4 A very attractive mottled light gray dover (?) Found in Missouri (NFI) 2000.00
  chert Midland Dart point (classified as Midland   1800.00
  by Greg Perino) which is well worked on both   10/20 ON-HOLD sv
  faces with good Paleo grinding. Essentially a    
  problem-free example of this ancient type. Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RPPA6 A very thin and slender "fish-tailed" (er, one at least) mottled Recovered in Paris, 425.00
  brown chert Midland Dart point, well flaked on both faces Lamar Co., TX 375.00
  with good paleo basal grinding. Obviously it's missing one    
  entire ear from the base which was anciently lost. Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: Stanfield Knife Provenance: Price
RPPA7 A very good-sized creamy white burington chert Recovered near Sedalia, MO 2000.00
  Paleo Stanfield Knife form which is very sturdy   1800.00
  and well flaked on both faces. With the    
  exception of a small single-flake recent nick to    
  one edge just above the base (left side in photo    
  6) this one's as perfect as the day it was made. Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: Clovis Knife Provenance: Price
RPPA8 A gorgeous mottled gray and tan bull's eye cobden chert Recovered in Illinois 2200.00
  Clovis Knife form, thoroughly flaked on both faces with   1900.00
  a single short flute on the base of side A. Side B shows    
  basal thinning. One ear of the base was anciently    
  sheared off, but other than that it's pretty much "all     
  there" as it was anciently used. Quite an attractive piece! Ex: Greg Perino Collection  

Item: Type: Paleo Ovoid Knife Provenance: Price
RPPA9 A fairly thin (for size) attractive mottled light gray Paleo   Found in Eufala, OK 1000.00
  Ovoid Knife blade, well flaked on both faces with a bit of a   800.00
  rough cutting edge from ancient usage near the tip. It retains    
  a powdery white section on the base from the original host    
  stone's outer cortex and has a substantial single step from     
  an overly aggressive flaking effort leading vertically from the Ex: Greg Perino Collection  
  base for a length of 1/2". A great paleo piece! Perino COA  

Item: Type: Paleo Knife Provenance: Price
RPPA11 A highly unusual mottled light gray and orange-tan Paleo Found near Winnsboro 400.00
  Backed Knife blade apparently made on a quite flat and Mt. Pleasant, TX  
  Edwards Plateau chert slab and anciently resharpened    
  until the cutting edges became too squared-off to be Ex: Partain, McClemore  
  useful. Thoroughly flaked on both faces by percussion and Perino Collections  
  flaking with much pressure flaking to the cutting edges. Perino COA  

Item: Type: Paleo Frederick Knife Provenance: Price
BRPA3 A SUPER NICE, RARE and quite thin but Dawson County, 4,500.00
  sturdy glossy off-white and sky-blue/light Nebraska  
  gray chert Paleo Frederick blade having on the Platte River  
  perfect symmetry, good usage wear marks    
  and excellent and intricate paleo flaking Perino COA  
  patterns. Has light basal grinding and is just a Rogers COA  

Perfect and very well made piece !

  (High resolution photos are available for the asking,    
  IF you're seriously interested in this piece)    

Item: Type: Clovis Provenance: Price
DOPA1 A very nice pinkish gray-brown chert Clovis having a single flute to side A and a slight hafting Midwestern area 1,100.00
  stop to side B, slightly offset to the right (see photo 4) flaking is fairly thorough on both sides,    
  although side A does have a slight "dip" near the tip (see photo 2) It has nice grinding to the    
  cutting edges at the base, but it has no grinding to the concave basal and this section appears    
  to have sustained ancient damage which was never re-worked, as it is a bit ragged and sharp.    
  Additionally, there is a subtle color change to the host stone covering the entire tip starting at    
  the upper 1/3rd of the surface (see photo 4, horizontal brown line) Rogers COA  

Item: Type: Midland Provenance: Price
RHPA51 A very unique and quite attractive, semi-translucent honey colored Provenance was vaguely SOLD 9/3
  and red silicified wood Midland dart point. It's well flaked on both specified as being either New  
  faces and is quite thin. It's highly desert polished and has very  Mexico or N.E. Arizona  
  unusual minute, parallel abrasion lines on both faces, but isolated to Ex: Don Pabst, Don Potter,  
  the area of the tip area alone. It has a single step near the upper  Don Meador   
  edge on side B, just above the horizontal centerline. (Photo 4) All Stermer COA  
  in all, quite a superior example of this desirable Paleo type Earthworks COA  

Item: Type: Meserve Provenance: Price
MBPA19 A most attractive fairly long mottled tan and yellow flint Paleo Found in NW Colorado 500.00
  Meserve having excellent flaking patterns on both faces and by Chester Howard  
  pressure flaked "flutes" from the base on both sides. It has nice    
  basal grinding and an unfortunate, slight lateral impact fracture    
  from the tip, running down a single edge for 3/8". It has a most    
  interesting lighter egg-shaped pattern on one face (photo 4)    
  which adds to it's attractiveness.    

Item: Type: Crescent Provenance: Price
JCPA9 An interesting semi-translucent horizontally banded Washoe Co., NV 135.00
  duo-flow obsidian Paleo Crescent which shows    
  traits of being anciently worked down into a hafted    
  side cutting blade, most likely salvaged when the    
  crescent form sustained damage to one end    

Item: Type: Hell Gap Provenance: Price
DIPA1 An absolutely gorgeous horizontally banded gray Recovered in 1,600.00
  and brown Reed Springs chert Hell Gap dart  Le Flore Co., OK 650.00
  point, thoroughly flaked on both faces to a median Ex: Jeff Joseph  
  ridge. It has great paleo grinding and is just an  Jackson COA  

outstanding artifact! G10 Paleo pieces are RARE!

Davis COA (G10!)  

Item: Type: Quad Provenance: Price
MBPA18 A nice light blue-gray Hornstone flint Quad, well Found in 250.00
  flaked on both faces but having edge nicks to a Weakley Co., TN  
  single edge on both faces. It has nice paleo basal    
  grinding and is not a bad piece for the age Jackson COA  

Item: Type: Paleo Crescent Provenance: Price

  B has a 25% flat spot in the middle of the blade    

Item: Type: Paleo Crescent Provenance: Price
PA119 A most unusual mottled reddish-brown vertically Recovered in 50.00
  banded petrified wood Paleo Crescent having NW Nevada 40.00
  flaking patterns which are a little rough, crude    
  and amateurish. It has an ancient lateral shear to    
  one working end, which appears to have been    
  anciently reworked (at least at the tip) to put it    
  back into action. The opposite working end has    
  a small lateral clip just below the working point    

Item: Type: Paleo Crescent Provenance: Price
JCPA1 A white and cream colored chert Paleo Recovered in SOLD
  Crescent well flaked on both faces in a Washoe Co., NV 9/26

DHPA5 A fairly small (for type) heavily Recovered in the 110.00
  river polished blue-gray chert Alvord Desert, OR 50.00
  "dipper style" Paleo Crescent    
  which shows traces of having    
  sustained a lateral shear to one    
  cutting edge from ancient usage    

Item: Type: Paleo Butterfly Crescent Provenance: Price
DHPA6 A blue-gray chert Paleo Butterfly Recovered in the SOLD
  Crescent having nice desert polish, Alvord Desert, OR  
  2 ancient fire pops (photo 6) and    
  lateral shears to both cutting edges    
  (photos 7 & 8) from ancient usage.    
  For all it's ancient flaws, it's still an    
  attractive piece which displays well    

Item: Type: Paleo Crescent Provenance: Price
DHPA11 A fairly nice mottled gray chert Paleo Recovered in the SOLD
  Butterfly Crescent having a slight shear to one Alvord Desert, OR  
  tip and an anciently salvaged opposing tip      
  which was rounded off in the salvage process.

TPPA33 A fairly thick (for type) blue-gray dacite  Lake Co., OR 85.00

Paleo Crescent. Flaking is somewhat sparse

Full history 9/26 ON-HOLD kb
  and both faces have a median ridge, side  to buyer  
  A's being more pronounced. One ear has an    
  ancient clip. The form is a nice variation    
  away from the normal Crescent forms, and,    
  this one would have made one heck of a    
  dangerous slashing weapon.   FrmrTPGB33

Item: Type: Paleo Crescent Provenance: Price
JDPA1 A medium sized pinkish-red agate Paleo Undocumented, 135.00
  Crescent which has been HEAVILY Great Basin region  
  patinated over with a desert bleached    
  white, gray and blue coating. It has nice     
  grinding and a few edge nicks which show    
  the true color of the original host stone.

  shows it's great antiquity with desert polish    

Item: Type: Hell Gap Provenance: Price
DWPA1 A very nice glossy tan and cream Found in SOLD 6/1
  colored burlington chert Hell Gap  Sac River drainage in  
  having thorough flaking patterns and Cedar Co., MO

DWPA3 An interesting, extremely thin Silicified Found in 1933 in SOLD 6/1
  sand Scottsbluff dart point having  Cherry Co, Nebraska  
  nice basal grinding and good, thorough    
  flaking patterns which are somewhat    
  subdued due to the nature of the    
  hoststone. Quite an exceptional piece    
  Please Note: The Jeb Taylor COA lists    
  this one as a silicified sand (Spanish    
  Diggings) Goshen/Plainview, but I've Ex: Stebbing  
  seen other Scottie's made from this  Ex: Brooks  
  material, so that's what I'm calling it, from Ex: Middaugh  
  my experience Taylor COA  

Item: Type: Agate Basin Provenance: Price
DWPA4 A fairly meaty, somewhat broad and Found in SOLD 6/1
  quite attractive orange chert Agate  Autauga Co.,
