Thin, well made with awesome flaking and bulls eye pattern in the Hornstone. 8:06
68 2 Human Faces/Heads, Arapaho, Oklahoma. These were found years ago by Jerry Hobbs in Arapaho, Oklahoma in pole digging till piles. The larger head is 2 1/8" long and depicts what is most likely the look of a dead person in the desert after a few days (protruding tongue and shrunken cheeks). The other one is 1 5/8" and is less descript, but you can make out the facial features well. Very interesting. I showed these to Tom Davis and he thinks they may be early settler or slave related. Impossible to say for sure, but really interesting pieces. Smaller one is stone, but the larger one might be a clay. 8:07

111 10X to 40X Stereoscopic Microscope. An absolute must have for any artifact collector. If you are not examining your rock purchases under the scope you are risking too much. 20X is the standard power used by most people as any more than that and it gets difficult to tell just what you are seeing. Stereoscopic is very important for getting a good 3D image so you can see what is happening in hinge fractures and distinguish sanding lines from material stratifications. Just a few hours a week on one of these and your knowledge about surface characteristics will take a giant leap forward. This one retailed for $395 when I bought it over 5 years ago. Lenses are not scratched and it is in good shape. Has the dust cover as well. Backlit bulb is burned out, top bulb is fine. Easily replaceable, but I never use the backlit bulb anyways. 8:50
112 Box of hundreds of points from Adams Co., PA. These come out of the John Geiselman Collection auctioned off in Williamsport a year or 2 ago. Collected in the 1940's. Lots of materials and types. Some good whole points in there, has to hundreds, but I have not counted them. Great for familiarizing yourself with Pennsylvania points and materials. 8:51
113 Tennessee Flint Celts/Hoes, Nuttingstone, Pestle and Points. All found by Brian Skelton in TN some years ago. In the center there is a preform of a Discoidal and an abrading stone with groves in it. The largest Flint Celt/Hoe is 7" long. There is a Paleo flake Knife next to it measuring 5 1/2" long. Interesting assemblage from one finder. 8:52
114 Load of Points from Texas. Part of a family collection I purchased a few years ago. Some good points in the pile and interesting materials including Rootbeer Flint, Edwards and Petrified Wood. 8:53
115 Nice Group of 66 points, Texas. Has Paleo to Woodland represented. The white Clovis is a broken piece measuring 1 13/16" long. The white and pink stemmed knife is made of what I would can Pink Pedernales Chert and 2 7/8" long. There are Angosturas, Darls, a Pedernales, Langtry and a bevy of other types. Nice materials and some good pieces as well. One of the bottom pieces is made of Pertified Palm Wood, a very highly sought after material to collect. 8:54
116 High Plains Pestle, Wyoming. 4 3/8" tall. Good depression in the bottom from use, much like you see in the Nuttingstones. The wear along the bottom edges is all ancient as far as I can tell. 8:55
