Okay, so this is not the best Scottsbluff you will find, but the price is not $5000 either. Here is a chance to fill a space in your paleo/archaic collection that is made from extremely rare translucent Novaculite. This is what I did when my knife river flint Scottsbluff was stolen. It was found in Cleveland County, Arkansas by Marcus Hayes. It is 1 3/4 " X 7/8" and has been heavily used and resharpened . There is good patination and mineralization. It comes with a Baker COA rating it a 7.5...

Overstreet states the Agee points are "the finest, most exquisite arrow point made in the United States". They are both 1 7/8". They are both made from translucent novaculite. They were found near the area of the Crenshaw Site. The name of the finder goes to the purchaser. I purchased both on 8-2-92 from Ray Stanford. Agee points of this quality are never seen on the open market. They are extremely rare and hoarded.

This is one of the most fascinating and unique artifacts I have ever seen. The axe is 5 1/2" from top to bottom and the handle is 7". The handle has been broken off in antiquity at the end which is a plus for me because you can see the internal cross section of the wood. The haft is completely fossilized (84% calcium carbonate). The calcification of the wood is such that a species analysis could not be successfully performed on it, but it was determined that it was probably conifer...

This incredible Clovis point, found on the Little Missouri River in Nevada County, Arkansas, is made from highly translucent novaculite of which only a few are known to exist. It has, according to Greg Perino, undergone some kind of heat-treating. He didn't believe that Paleo man heat-treated, so his explanation was that it must have been in a forest fire or heated in meat. I lost his COA, so I had it authenticated at a forensic laboratory which cost $500. The COA is included...

I purchased these four Hayes points from Tom Davis in the 1990's. They are from the Mississippian period and were found in SW Arkansas. Tom was selling them for Ken Partain and they are pictured in Prehistoric Antiquities of which I have the original publication. Tom sent me 79 Hayes points. I cherry picked the top four. All Hayes points are extremely rare and most on the market are fake according to one of top area authenticators. The crystal point is micro-chipped and is the finest workmanship...

This opal point was found in 1955 at the foot of Hart Mountain, Crump Lake area, Oregon, by Bob Rock, in the presence of the late Carroll Howe which I confirmed with a telephone call to Carroll. Carroll wrote four books on northwest material. There is an opal outcropping about 30 miles away that matches this ty...

This unique 3-pronged bone tool is probably a comb, but could be some type of fish or crawdad spear or even a fork. It was found at a Ft. Ancient site in Washington County, Kentucky on private property. One prong was broken off in antiquity and glued back on. This is the most unusual bone piece I have ever seen. It was obviously carved with stone tools. It is nicely polished with great patination. It dates to the Mississipian Period around 1000AD.
