All of the individually and inexpensively priced artifacts and artifact lots in this group of twelve (MAD1, MAD8, MAD56, MAD61, MAD65Y, MAD112, MAD133, MAD134F, MAD135H and MAD161) are from the early Rev. Maurice Dametz collection. A popular teacher at old Colorado College (now Colorado Christian University), his specialties were geology, anthropology, history, archaeology, and the Bible. Dametz found most of the artifacts in his collection in the mid-20th century, and usually mounted them on cardboard provenance sheets that were annotated with pertinent information concerning date and location of find. Of particular interest in this group of twelve are the artifacts collected at the famed ancient quarry known as Spanish Diggings, Wyoming, and the large group of remnant Gulf Coast shell disk beads found in the Hygiene area of Colorado, some measuring up to an inch in diameter. The artifacts shown in collector frames on this page will come in the those frames, the artifacts not in frames come with a small display card, and all come with a biographical sketch about Dametz and his collection.
