Item: Type: Petrified Wood Corner-notched Scraper Provenance: Price
CHFT21 Now this one's a real enigma  (puzzle). For starters, it's ULTRA thin Offered by the original 45.00
  and my first impression was that it was made from a "salvaged" finder(s) who recovered  
  broken knife blade, but upon closer examination, I believe that this this one from their own  
  one was created from day 1 to be used as a scraper. An interesting property in Polk Co., TX  
  piece which retains a greater portion of the outer cortex layers of the     
  petrified wood host material, with good, detailed secondary pressure    
  flaking to it's working edges. Quite a unique piece in a rare material.

Item: Type: Crude Covington Knife Form Provenance: Price
CHFT22 A fairly rustic, very thick knife blade, which, judging by the hand Offered by the original 30.00
  grips worked into the surface, doubled as a scraper. Flaking- finder(s) who recovered  
  wise, this one's about as crude and rough as they come, from the this one from their own  
  Archaic period it dates between 3,000 to 4,000 years old. property in Polk Co., TX

Item: Type: Petrified Wood Winged Drill Provenance: Price
CHFT25 A very attractive and quite scarce mottled tan and brown petrified wood  Offered by the original 65.00
  Drill in excellent condition. Typing this one is most difficult, but at the very finder(s) who recovered  
  least, I would date it to the Archaic to Woodland period, somewhere this one from their own  
  between 1,000 and 3,000 years old. Quite a unique and desirable item. property in Polk Co., TX

  evidenced by the very obvious hafting line shown in photos 1 and    
  4. The surfaces on both side A and side B are mostly flat in the    
  center from the form of the original host stone. Slightly crude, but    
  still an excellent study in ancient tool manufacture and use.   dlfw

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
VAFT4 A quite interesting and crude Archaic Cascade brown jasper Offered by original 35.00

  vertical flat section on side B (photos 3 & 5) left over from the original Crook Co., OR  
  host stone's cortex. Basalt is near impossible to work very well, but

  the rustic side, but is still a valid truly well used ancient artifact.   dlfw

  2500 and 7000 years old. It's very well flaked on both faces mostly by    
  wide indirect percussion. It has minor usage wear to the edges but is
