Miami Valley Artifacts
2-1/2" Tall Pipestone Claw effigy pipe, Found in Madison Co. OH. in 1964 by Jack Hastings. Fantastic color and workmanship on this pipe. These are generally Ft. Ancient culture pipes and many have been found on sites along the Scioto River. $325 ON HOLD
Approx. 3" long hardstone Bust Birdstone. Found in Wabash Co. IN. Ex- Vastano Collection. I feel like this is an unfinished piece, due to a few things, there are no holes drilled, there is still pecking marks present and the base has not been flattened. With that said its still a very nice authentic example of a birdstone, which is getting to be harder to come by lately. The price reflects the fact that it is unfinished. $600 ON HOLD
4-1/8" Carter cave thebes point. Kentucky piece, Ex- Voit Collection. This piece is not made like any thebes I've ever seen, except one, which was supposedly a hopewell representation of a thebes point. The one that I saw was not flaked like a thebes and had no grinding on the base. This point is made that same way. Neat piece! $175
4-3/4" Banded Slate Glacial Kame Gorget, Found in Delaware Co. OH. Ex- Fraser. Beautiful gorget with great banding, Sure it has a few dings on it but they are for the most part ancient and polished over. Great piece of slate. $240
3-3/8" Upper Mercer Paleo blade, found in Wayne Co. OH. Ex- Snider. Neat steak knife like piece. $45 SOLD
4-1/4" Flint ridge paleo stanfield blade. Found in south west Ohio by Don Carson, Ex- Dan Gilliam. Great coloration to the flint on this piece, also has a nice median ridge. $180 SOLD
Agate Midland and Blade combo. The midland measures 1-3/16" and the blade is 3-7/8". They were found within inches of each other on private land by Tony Wagner in Laguna NM. in 2007. I got these from the finder, he had the midland papered by Davis (grade 9) because he wanted to know the type. Also found with these and I'll include it with the group was a section of a milnsand point (not pictured). An excellent opportunity to get some great folsom related tools. $600 for the three pieces.
5-1/8" Flint Ridge Button Base Dovetail. Found in Bartholomew Co. IN. in April 1982, Ex- Collinder Collection. I can't even say when the last time was that I've seen an authentic flint ridge dove this size offered for sale. Yes it has some edge dings but it try to find one without them. Great color on the patination and you can see some nice cream color spots showing through, Parallel flaked and a nice median ridge on one side. Great piece of ancient art. $975
