it's listed as being chert on the COA) Arenosa Dart point having blue speckled inclusions and notches added anciently Southwestern Texas 50.00
near the tip. (Which leads me to believe that this was some warrior/hunter's "lucky point" which he turned into a
pendant, although this usage is not listed on the COA) Flaking patterns are mostly percussion on the faces with very fine
secondary pressure flaking patterns to the edges. The stem was anciently sheared off. Quite a unique piece, actually

thoroughly flaked on both faces in mostly a random pattern with finer pressure re-touch flaking 150.00
to it's edges. A very good-sized and attractive piece which appears to be "all there" as it was
anciently made and used. This one would make a good centerpiece to any collection.

Item: Type: Unclassified Archaic Dart point Provenance: Price
LSAR133 A fairly small translucent moonstone, brown and black agate unclassified Archaic Dart point Recovered from 45.00
which shows good, early period flaking patterns. It has some pitting, especially on side B Otero Co., NM 20.00
where an agate vein ran diagonally just above the center-line. Personally I think that this was
a "re-cycled" tip of a much larger dart point which was damaged during ancient times.

Item: Type: Dickson Provenance: Price
LSAR134 A pretty neat, VERY flat blue-gray flint Dickson Stemmed Knife form turned Dart point. This piece has a lot of Recovered from Texas 85.00
character, made by a VERY advanced (if not "stingy") knapper who knew how to get the most mileage out of (no further details recorded) 50.00
scarce knappable host material through ancient re-sharpenings. This one is truly a study in ancient knapping
technology and shows the Archaic period's practice of beveled re-sharpenings without altering the symmetrical form
of this nice piece. It has no flaws, and is essentially "all there" as it was anciently used, worked-down and re-used.
