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

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
