I purchased this bone bear carving many years ago from Michael Steele, Who's Who and publisher of Prehistoric Antiquities. It was found in PA. Michael purchased it from Len Weidner who authenticated and dated it. The patina is a gorgeous deep brown. It is 2 inches square. Have you ever seen another bone bear carving? This is an extremely rare and unique artifact. Along with my other two bone gorgets, I consider these to be the finest bone artifacts in existence from North America. Make a reasonable offer on all three and own the rarest and best bone. Please see my youtube video at http://www.youtube.com/embed/xlJjZsNPRtI.Due to a recent diagnosed major health problem, I have dropped the price of this piece and all my items by at least 50% to at or below the price I paid many years ago. Now is the time to pick up a great deal. My loss is your gain. The price was $3000.
