Here's the last of the five points we have on consignment from the Rhonda Beck collection (RXB16). Although an attached tag has the notation "Cobb's" (and the inked words "Pope Co ILL" on the side of the blade itself), I believe this is an un-notched pre-form of the Tennessee River type due to the absence of the Cobb's characteristically beveled edges. The Tennessee River is an Early Archaic point dating c.7000-4000BC. Measuring 7" in length and, again, a Beck point that is virtually without damage, the stone has been identified as tan "Haney Chert" by the noted authenticator Calvin Howard. This fine blade is presented in a Riker-style collector frame and comes with a map of Illinois hi-lighting the location of Pope County. Also included is Cal Howard's certificate of authenticity. This is the last point we will list from the Beck collection, but yet another point for the collector looking for only the finest to consider. To see all five from the Beck collection, type 'RXB' in any of our search links. Select or ask any question concerning this item by referring to either the Trocadero Item Number on this page, or the inventory number RXB.16. NOTE: if you would like to view a large number of our various listings, and at the same time limit your browsing, try our popular ‘TWELVE different items on a single page format’ by simply spelling out the word TWELVE in the search box. That will quickly bring up all of our listings that have up to twelve different items on a page, each individually priced! And if you want to further refine the group, add one or two additional modifiers at the same time such as ‘Indian, Precolumbian, Stone, Pot, Gold, etc.’ Any item that has been sold will be so noted on its photograph.
