6" Wide Hardstone Gorget, Found in Wyandot Co. OH. near Wharton by William Secrist on 8-1-1901. Very large, no brainer gorget. I believe it is made of some sort of fine grain Schist. A very nice large gorget with great history. $425
Group of 7 Ohio Bifuricates, All are from the Walter Nelson or Jim Hawks Collections. All are better example of small fine points. $100 for the group.
2-5/8" Cobden Hornstone corner notch, Found in Indiana Ex- Walter Nelson. This piece is pretty neat because it is polished. Polished flint is a rarity, I'm not sure what the use was for it, but it is cool and this one has the collector history to make it highly collectable. $250
4-3/4" Coshocton paleo blade, Found in Coshocton Co. OH. Ex- Hahn. This piece has been in my collection for a very long time, it has my catalog number on it of SMY0035. This is one crazy blade, first off the colors are insane! and the second part of it is the thinness, I have never had a blade this size that is this thin and the flaking is off the charts. Nice indented base and again the colors, look at the colors!! If you want to know what good coshocton looks like this is it. $1000 and I'm probably crazy for letting it go.
4-3/8" Burlington Mehlville Found in Hardin Co. Ill. in 1906 Ex- Walter Nelson. A huge handful of burlington chert with great collector history. Did I mention it's a handful!! $380
3-3/8" Coshocton Paleo blade, Found in Wayne Co. OH. Ex- Snider Collection. Very nice colors on this blade with blue, shades of gray and some neat cortex like material. Also sports a flute on one side. $60
5-1/4" Flint Ridge Hopewell Blade, Found in Wyandot Co. OH. near Wharton by William Secrist on 5-22-1911. Very heavy patina on this piece, so much that the pics didn't show the color well. A huge piece of ridge!! $275
3-3/8" White flint Dalton, Found in Indiana Ex- Marion "Horsefly" Bush, Ex- Marvin Gilley. I'm not 100% on what to call the flint, but it is a nice glossy white. Finely made and very thin, a great example of a dalton. Lightly fluted on both faces, and ground nicely as well. The piece is pictured in Who's Who #2 in Bush's collection, it's not front and center but you can make it out in his frames in the display case. Comes with a Davis COA. My catalog number SMY0138 $800
2-7/8" Blue Coshocton Mackorkle, Found in in Wyandot Co. OH. near Wharton by William Secrist on 7-12-1912. Another great Mackorkle out of this collection, I really like the blue color to the flint on this piece. $150
4" High color Sonora Hopewell Snyders, Found in Kentucky Ex- Walter Nelson Collection.This is the first Sonora Snyders I have seen and it's a big one with outstanding colors too. I think the pics speak for them self and add in the great collector history on it makes this an investment grade piece. $550
