This is a beauty. I think it is a Thebes Corner Notch. It is thin, serrated, beveled on the left side and ground on the base. It has amazing patina throughout and a fine tip.
Here is a colorful group of thin flake knives or bladelets. The ancient Native Americans made them to be used for cutting. They are as sharp as a scalpel when they are made. This technology was used beginning in Paleo times. The longest is 2-1/4″ in length.
Here is a very nice and well used small mortar and pestle. It is hard to see the indentations on both sides of the mortar in the photos. The centers are about 1/4″ lower on the working areas. There is a nice polish from use in the middle of both sides and the outer edges still show the pecking from being shaped. This is a great and unusually small example. It was possibly made to be portable. The pestle was found a couple years later in the same field. That doesn’t necessarily mean they were ever a pair but they do seem to fit each others contour. The pestle has a nutting divot on it’s working side and has pecking from rough shaping still present. It also has a nice smoothing on the bottom from use. They display very well together.
The material on this beauty is unbelievable. I’ve not seen it before . It is very colorful and banded almost like petrified wood. This point was part of a group of artifacts purchased at a museum auction near Xenia Ohio in the early 1970’s.
This 150+ year old metal is a museum quality Civil War Relic. It is from the 76th Infantry Regiment of the Illinois Volunteer Union Army based out of Kankakee, Illinois. The 76th was mustered Aug. 22nd 1862 and had a long history in the Civil War including fighting under General Grant at several locations such as the seige of Vicksburg. It also fought under General Sherman at Jackson Mississippi where it lost 102 men, 16 of which were left on the field. The 76th fought in the last major battle of the war at Fort Blakely Alabama where it helped capture an intire Confererate garrison and suffered heavy lossed. Unfortunately that battle was fought hours after Lee had already surrendered The regiment then traveled to Chicago where it was disbanded on August 6,1865. Over 250 men were killed in battle and by disease it their 3 year tenure. I am sure this is worth much more than my asking price.

This is a very rare artifact. It as worn on the earlobe that was pierced to allow this to slide into place and held in place by the small grove. It is fashioned from a speckeled hardstone and is highly polished. The front side is rounded and very symmetrical. The back side has been flattened and is more oblong. Between the front and the back is a small grove on its entire circumference. This is a great example of Native American artwork and fashion.
Here is a really old Seaman’s Knife. It was made in Sheffeld England around the mid-1800’s. It has a carved horn handle with great patina and is in very good shape for it’s age.
This hook was purchased at a relic show in the early 70’s. It was part of a group of artifacts from an abandon fishing village recovered in the 1940’s. The village was near Hooper Bay Alaska Latitude 61:30 Longitude 166. It appears to be old and authentic with nice patina.
This is a beautifully made point using very high quality material. It is highly beveled thin with a nicely ground base. There is a small nick on one ear but the overall quality makes up for that.
This is an awesome Baily and Himes ball glove. This one is from the days of the baseball greats. The lack of a web and finger laces tell how old it is. It is in good condition with no rips or tears in the leather. It has normal use wear and the strap is in good shape. The leather remains soft and pliable but probably could use some oil. It even fits my big hand. This one is man cave material and worthy of top shelf display.
