Large Newton Falls
This large point was purchased with a group of artifacts from a flea market in Washington Courthouse, Ohio in the mid 1970’s. The entire group was supposedly found by the sellers grandfather in the 1930’s. They all do appear old and authentic. This one appears to be made of Coshocton Chert.
Discoidal From Illinois– NFS -High Quality Reproduction
This beautifully made discoidal was purchased at auction in the late 60’s and has been in our collection since. A piece like this is not often offered for public sale. But it is not a personal find so I want to check it’s authenticity before selling.
Now the rest of the story…The opinion was that it was a historically made piece. I am glad I didn’t let it get out the door. I guess it could still make a good paperweight.
Giant 3/4 Grooved Axe – NFS Just a High Quality Fake
Weighing in at over 6 LBS this is a beauty. But it is not a personal find so I want to check it’s authenticity before selling. My father purchased it from a farmer in the 60’s who had been using it as a doorstop.
Now the rest of the story…Unfortunately, it has been determined that this is not ancient but of historic manufacture. I guess I will now use it as a doorstop.
Indiana Green Notched Points
These points came from a collection from Mooresville Indiana purchased in the late 1960’s. They are both made of the collectable ‘Indiana Green’ chert. Both points are beveled and one is heavily bifurcated and is probably an Osceola or Big Sandy Contracting Base point. The other one appears to have some ancient rework done to it’s base but it may have happened during the manufacturing process.
