A message from the family of Terry Lee Baxter:

It is with great sadness that we share of Terry's
unexpected passing on August 19, 2016.

As much as we would love to continue Terry's work
with Western Artifacts, we regretfully will not be
able to provide the same level of service that he
had to offer. 

Terry was highly respected in his field and spent
a considerable amount of time and effort building
this site and its reputation. We would love to see
his work carry on if possible. If there is any
interest from someone in the industry to take
over Terry's business, feel free to message 
Terry's daughter, Shena Luna at

We are happy to be able to continue offering
Terry's book for purchase,
How To Find Indian Arrowheads
and Other Ancient Artifacts and Relics.
Click on the book cover below for
ordering information.

Terry was an amazing individual who 
graciously shared his knowledge.
He was also a loving & devoted husband,
a caring & supportive father,
and the proudest & most fun grandpa
a kid could ask for.
He will be greatly missed by many.

Thank you to everyone
who has been in contact,
for your patience, understanding
and sympathy.

After a full year and a half in the works, I finally completed my book on How to Find Indian Arrowheads and other Ancient Artifacts and Relics...  Click on the book's cover below for information on how to order:


Perino out-of-print BOOK OFFERING... Greg Perino's books titled "Selected Preforms, Points and Knives of the North American Indians"... these hardbound books are EXTREMELY thorough and have professional, detailed drawings of all point types across the United States with VERY detailed information about each type, it's original discovery and how they were assigned their "type names" not to mention many detailed drawings of point types in their "evolutionary stages", such as their preform stages. These are for the serious typology artifact students, and a GREAT collectors' item as they are out-of-print volumes and most difficult to find for sale anywhere! PLEASE NOTE: NOT ALL point types are covered in each publication, each publication covers a specific range of point types, from A to Z, but again, not ALL point types are listed in each volume. (These tended to skip around a bit, as research was being conducted to complete the types contained in each volume.)
To view "A Tribute To Greg Perino" please visit the site below:

All of these are Out-Of-Print, and we only have a limited supply of each, so please order early to insure that you get the copy you want. (These would make a GREAT Christmas present if you have a serious arrowhead collector in your family!)
To Order a volume of this book, simply click on the appropriate email link below, and send the email... you don't have to write anything in the body of the email and you will be contacted by email, to complete the order:
Selected Preforms, Volume 3 - $150 (Postage included)
Selected Preforms, Volume 2 (Unsigned) - $250 (Postage included) Please note, the supply of these is running VERY short! (less than 10 left)
Selected Preforms, Volume 2 (Signed copy) - $275 (Postage included) Please note, the supply of these is running VERY short! (less than 10 left)
PLEASE NOTE: ALL of the Volume 2 books were stored in the author's garage for more than 10 years, and all of these have some
very slight, spotty "age discoloration" to the outer edges of some of the pages... despite this minor shortcoming, we still guarantee
complete customer satisfaction.
Book 2 starts with the arrowhead Abbey type and ends with the Zella type. there are a total of 302 points illustrated and described. some of these are Andice, backed knives, Dawson, First view, Goshen, Howard county, Massard, Nebo hill, Paisano, Raccoon, Stockton, Turin, Ulu, and Washita northern variety.
Book 3 starts with the Acatta arrowhead type and ends with the Zora type, with a total of 256 point types covered. Some of those included are Armijo, bear arrow, belen, cobbs triangular, dane sharkstooth, frederick, folsom unfluted, glendo, jeff, kirk, oxbow, pedernales, pinwah, pulaski, st marion, steiner, tulare lake, and trujilo.


Recently we were privileged to be able to offer the famous Chenoweth / Gaffney Collections on our Caches &
Collections webpage. These famous collections are well documented in the publication "Bodega Bay Anthology
Archaeological assemblage", shown above. To order your own copy of the Bodega Bay Anthology publication
for $25, simply click on the link below and send the email... it's all auto-magic, and you will be contacted by
email with the details for receiving this professional publication:
