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 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.
This is a very nice piece of Alaskan history. It was purchased as part of a collection in the mid 60’s. It appears to have some glue residue in the crack at the top to support it from cracking further. (See photos)
