TPFT409 A fairly large and broad (for type) black obsidian uni-faced Archaic Stemmed Scraper. Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 30.00
It has HEAVY caliche encrustation on side A, most likely as a result of setting in a County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
dried-up lake bed for eons. By contrast, the flat (uni-faced) side is completely "clean". and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex

TPFT410 A very thick and sturdy mottled brown jasper Archaic Cascade Knife Blade Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 45.00
which is mostly uni-faced and most likely doubled as a Scraper as well. It has County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
white lime encrustation along the non-working edge, which very well might have and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
been an inclusion which weathered away. An interesting artifact for sure

TPFT411 A fairly thick fossiliferous dark gray and mottled tan chert Circular Scraper. Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 20.00

patterns on side B, which is not the normal form for a "Humpie" (which is normally uni-faced) and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
Just a nice ancient tool which appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and used

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT414 A most interesting almost uni-faced glossy black obsidian Cascade Knife Blade Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 65.00

the edges of side B. The surface shows a substantial amount of river polish. and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT415 A very hefty black dacite Cascade Knife which was made on a large flake, and Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 85.00
which retains 90% of the original flake's flat surface on side B, where only the edges County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
show secondary pressure flaking. Side A is thoroughly worked and it's interesting to and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
note that the ancient knapper took advantage of the basic flake's curved form to
create a finger-rest on side A, just below it's horizontal centerline. (see the 6-1/2" to
7" area in photo 1) The surfaces show moderate river polish as well

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT416 A nice medium-sized glossy black obsidian Cascade Knife Blade which is Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 65.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by a very accomplished ancient knapper. This County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
piece shows substantial river polish to both faces, which slightly subdued the and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
flaking patterns, but didn't entirely eliminate them. It shows more recent multiple
chipping to it's edges, most of which probably occurred while this one was
floating down a river or creek somewhere. A nice piece, fairly priced

Item: Type: Set of 3 Cascade Knife Blades Provenance: Price
TPFT417 A nice set of 3 obsidian Archaic Cascade Knife Blades which are all Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 75.00

Item: Type: Hafted Scrapers Provenance: Price
TPFT418 A nice pair of black obsidian Hafted Scrapers from the Cascade-era of the Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 20.00

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT419 A very crudely formed medium-sized Cascade Knife Blade created by a Novice Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 25.00
knapper. Although it shows flaking patterns to both faces, it very well may be an County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
un-finished tool, used as a blade in the interim. Reasonably priced for such an and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
ancient tool of substantial size
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 4,000 to 8,000 years old

Item: Type: Scraper/Knife Combination Tool Provenance: Price
TPFT420 A very meaty black obsidian combination Scraper-Knife blade which is well flaked on Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 35.00
both faces, mostly by the direct percussion method. It has an ancient gouge to one edge County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
(right side in photo 2) which appears to have simply been a weaker section of the stone and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
which weathered away over time. The base retains a flat section from the original host
stone's outer rind. (photo 7) Very reasonably priced for such an ancient tool
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 4,000 to 8,000 years old

Item: Type: Cascade Era Preform-Scraper-Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT421 Now this one is really quite an enigma to classify, it appears to be a combination Knife-Shaft Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 65.00
scraping tool which might just be a preform which was utilized in it's transitory state. What is County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
so puzzling about this artifact is the fact that it is fairly well flaked on both faces with a and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
combination of percussion flaking and quite intricate secondary pressure flaking, especially to
it's cutting edges. It also has what appears to be the beginning stages of rudimentary side
notches and the bottom of the base has been left essentially untouched by the ancient knapper.
The tip has been worked into a concave (shaft?) scraping tool. Quite a puzzle.

Item: Type: Cascade Preform Provenance: Price
TPFT422 A black obsidian Cascade Preform which is very roughly worked into it's first Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 30.00

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT423 A good sized, very sturdy opaque black obsidian Cascade Knife Blade which is Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 50.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces, but which has heavy duty river polish which County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
subdues the flaking patterns somewhat. It shows pitting near the base on side B and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
(left side in photo 3 and close-up in photo 6) and shows slight ancient nicking to
the edges. It has a lateral shear along one edge which starts at the tip and travels
down one edge for 3/8" (shown in photo 5, right side in photo 1)
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 4,000 to 8,000 years old

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT424 A nice semi-translucent diagonally banded obsidian Cascade Knife Blade which is Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 40.00
well flaked on side A, with side B having a 20% vertical flat section in it's center from County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
the outer cortex of the original flake it was made from. It shows a fair degree of river and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
polish to it's surfaces and has quite a few edge nicks, most likely caused by drifting
down a river or creek for hundreds of years. Still not a bad piece for the money
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 4,000 to 8,000 years old

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
TPFT425 A good-sized semi-translucent diagonally banded obsidian Cascade Knife Blade which is Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 45.00
thoroughly and intricately flaked on both faces, but which shows substantial river polish which County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
in turn slightly subdues the flaking patterns. It was created on a long flake and still retains a and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
slight curvature from the original flake's form. It has numerous edge nicks which are mostly
polished over from it's rolling around in a river or creek for hundreds of years. The tip is
basically flat, and this appears to be just the way it was originally made. Reasonably priced
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 4,000 to 8,000 years old

Item: Type: Hafted Scraper Provenance: Price
TPFT426 A fairly large (for type) opaque black obsidian Hafted Scraper Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 20.00
which is almost uni-faced (only worked on side A) and which has County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
a most unusual "blunted" working end. Affordably priced and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex

Item: Type: Hafted Scraper Provenance: Price
TPFT427 A fairly large (for type) opaque dark gray obsidian Hafted Scraper which is Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 30.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces with a slight amount of river polish. Because of County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
the detailed flaking patterns, I believe that this piece was "re-cycled" from a and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
larger stemmed lance point, which was most likely damaged in ancient use.

TPFT428 An Archaic Cascade Flake Knife blade made from semi-translucent black obsidian. It Found by the seller near the city of Paisley in Lake 30.00
was formed from a long flake and retains many flat sections from the original flake's County, Oregon within 10 miles of the well documented
surface, with secondary pressure flaking appearing mostly along it's cutting edges. Either a and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex
"fast and dirty" creation, or made by a novice knapper, I can't tell which is the case

while the longer blade was made on a flake and is also well worked on both faces, but it and excavated Paisley 5-mile cave complex

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JCFT42 A somewhat thick, sturdy and slightly crude black and brown chert Cascade Knife Blade which shows Recovered from 75.00
minimal flaking patterns to both faces, mostly made by the direct percussion technique. It has an ancient Pershing Co., NV 50.00
edge "shear" to one side which runs from the bottom of the base upwards for a length of 3/4" and is
most likely just the way this one was made. If I had to pass judgment on this knife blade, I would say
that it was a "fast & dirty" job created in a hurried fashion out of necessity. This blade was a "hand-
held" knife, having a good "thumb rest" opposing the cutting edge. (center-right side in photo 4)
  Era: Early Archaic Period - 4,000 to 8,000 years old
