|From the Dr. Allen Heflin collection, this group of twelve Pre-Columbian obsidian amulets, ornaments, protective fetishes and miscellaneous artifacts (AXH 221.20 and 27; 224.18; 183R6N12; 234R2N9, R3N2 & 9; R5N4; RR6N5 & 12; R8N4 & 10) include the following types: lip plug, pendant, discoidal, star, dog, bird (?), bat, and crescent. Found in the West Mexican states of Jalisco and Sayula, the Aztec site of Xico, the great city of Teotihuacan, and in the Valley of Mexico, they are in overall good condition and easily adapted for contemporary wear. Each piece comes Elmer-glued to a small cardboard backed card that can be removed with a quick soak (tale care in removing any glue from the back as the white paint marking the location and date found that was placed there by Heflin could be accidentally removed). Ask any question by referring first to the Trocadero Item Number on this page, and then to our Inventory Number shown in the given photograph. Each artifact comes with a biographical sketch about Heflin, a map of Mexico showing the location where the artifact was found, and our certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
