15 Native American Hammerstones, Gamestones, Grinders and Pecking Stones
The pictures don’t do these justice. They were all found on sites that produced many other artifacts. They all show signs of use by Native Americans. They were used as hammerstones, nutting stones, grinding stones and game stones. There is a gamestone in the group that is worth the total price alone. It looks oblong in the photo but is perfectly round. All with shipping included.
Rare Early 17th Century European Fighting Axe
This was found in a field along the Wabash River between a French trading post and the Tippecanoe battlefield. That doesn’t mean that it had anything to do with either. I’m just sayin’. Anyway this is a very cool artifact. It is definitely very old. I now have new information from an expert. Apparently it is a battle-axe of a type originally from Eastern Europe (Hungarian or Polish) ca 1600.
Here is one beautiful Early Archaic point. It was purchased at a museum auction in Xenia, Ohio in the 1960’s. At first I thought it had a tip nick. But viewing it with a loop you can see several tiny chips taken off to repair a small impact fracture during the time of it’s use. There is an ear nick that is also as old as the point itself and possibly done during it’s making or resharpening. It has a ground base and is highly beveled on one side of each face.
