885-2010) Leaf Blade made of a beautiful red, brown, and black mahogany obsidian.  It measures approx 3 7/16" in length and is extremely thin with a tabular to lenticular cross section, was reportedly found in Oregon presumably on private land, x Jim Bennett and comes with a Rogers COA. Evaluated by Western Typology whom issued a kill letter as a modern reproduction, so we have 2/3 mainstream authenticators whom believe its ancient, 1 modern. FWIW, my initial assessment was that it was authentic as it looked well patinated and mineralized, now I am unsure so my enjoyment of owning this relic went out the window. I sold this item previously and it generated some controversy amongst the peanut gallery so I fully refunded the buyer's money and have shared this experience and the relic within my own close circle of friends. The consensus is mixed, some believe strongly that it is ancient, others are not sure, while a few believe that all mahogany obsidian relics are modern. What people don't realize is that every authenticator has their strengths and weaknesses and clients should consider artifact authentication as an imperfect science. Human nature sometimes introduces bias, political rivalry and subjective opinions. Collectors must look at the entire body of work of each expert and think about authentication as a batting average similar to baseball. Some authenticators are just criminals whom intentionally paper reproductions and use straw sellers to generate extreme profit. Others are collectors first and providing the collecting community a fee-based service and probably are correct 99.5% of the time in their evaluations. Unfortunately as in the case of this relic, a few within that 1% doubt area. From my perspective, I respect each of these men professionally, however as a business owner this item has become dead inventory and I am selling it as a tax write off.

D) Fake Freemont Knife made of white chert that I purchased from Jeff N Deann whom refused to offer a return. I was foolish enough to let the blurry pic by this dealer with apparent patination suck me into a $107 mistake.
E) This is an ancient authentic Cascade Leaf made of opaque mouse obsidian that was part of the John Cockrell collection and was found in Lake Co, Oregon, however it has modern rechipping along the blade edge.
F) Reproduction Basetang Knife made of Edwards Plateau flint soaked in an alkali solution to artificially age it. I purchased this from Randy Hamilton whom consigned this piece on a website dealing in far west artifacts supposedly skipped the country and refused to honor a return policy. I sold this piece to Floyd Easterwood whom sent it to Dwain Rogers whom killed it. I refunded Floyd his money and gave him a Calf Creek point for the hassle and as a gesture in good faith.
G) Humboldt Basenotch made of maroon color Franciscan jasper. This one was supposedly found on the Rouge River in Oregon by the Father of Mike Boren, x Jim Greenwood. The problem that I have with this item is that it has waxy residue on it used to attach mineral deposits.
H) Blackrock Concave Base reproduction whom had this as a ringer in a group of authentic Oregon relics made of obsidian, a $125 burn.
I) Artificially aged reproduction Cascade Leaf made of glassy basalt. I have seen this type of patination on basalt from the Fraser River so believed it to be a very old point. It had wonderful provenance and was found in Washington State, blah blah, x Matthew Hayden, but Dwain Rogers evaluated it as modern.
J ) Windust Dart Point made of black opaque Glass Buttes obsidian, x John Cockrell, Lake Co, Oregon. It is definitely ancient authentic, but has modern rechipping near the tip as evaluated by Dwain Rogers.
K) Stemmed Texas point made of Edwards Plateau Flint but has modern rechipping. Seller was honorable and refunded my money and allowed me to keep the point as a study item.
L) Leaf Blade made of a gorgeous moss agate supposedly found in Montana, x Brad Davis but I struggle to definitely say it is ancient authentic because it doesn't have much in the way of mineral deposits and appears fresh in spots. It could very well be good, but is indeterminate.
M) Reproduction Scottsbluff made of semi transparent gem obsidian supposedly found in Oregon. Has absolutely no patination whatsoever despite seller claims of ancient authenticity as a 'grandpa' find.
N1-2) Reproduction Dart Points made of gem obsidian that I purchased from Kieran Davis of ddfossils on 11/11/2006. The look like Pre Columbian Toltec pieces but have been evaluated and found to be modern reproductions by Stermer.
O) Reproduction Alberta dart point made by a crooked artifaker named Walter Cross. He claimed it was found in Wyoming which as it turns out he purchased it from a flintknapper out of Oregon then attempted to age the piece before reselling it. Much of the generic papered  fake junk floating around these days technically resemble the work of the same network of knappers and straw man sellers in my humble opinion. Cross refused to refund my $186.50 SOLD, Thank You!! 12-22-2016
 

 

2920-2016) Set of 20 Rechipped, Reproduction and Questionable Flintknapping Art Items. The longest item measures approx 1 1/2" in length. This is a mix of Great Basin, Desert Southwest, African Neolithic and amateur knapping items.

2919-2016) Set of 23 Egyptian Ground Stone and Ceramic Items that may be ancient authentic but because I am not certain, am offering them as reproductions. The longest specimen measures approx 1 7/8" in length. These items are made of various materials ranging from Alabaster, stone, and glazed ceramic. I purchased them from a very high end antique dealer in Dallas, Texas in August 2012. They were reportedly part of a huge estate that the family consigned for sale. These vary widely in appearance and have a heavy mineral deposits which appear to give appearance of great age. I have researched this type of relic and have learned that reproductions are abundant on the marketplace and given my experience studying ancient authentic and modern relics, it isn't enough for me to make a call. My instincts suggest that they were made as reproductions to sell to tourists. However for the life of me I cannot help but to wonder why someone would go to such great lengths to make then artificially patinate then mineral them. This all being said, they make an interesting display and generate conversation. SOLD, Thank You!! 12-22-2016
 

 

 

1331-2012) Coquille or Stockton-Related Multi Notched Dart Point or Knife made of Franciscan Jasper.

456-2010) Modernly Rechipped Windust Fishtail Dart Point / Lanceolate. Was reportedly found in the Blackrock Desert region of Nevada presumably on private land. This is an ancient authentic artifact.

Update: 9/1/2011 Per special request of the previous owner I have removed all references of their name from this rock. According to Dwain Rogers this item has a modernly rechipped tip, therefore only has educational value. I will forward his analysis along with all relevant information to buyer. The modern rechipping was never disclosed to me by the seller. SOLD, Thank You!! 12-22-2016

 

 

 

1151-2012) Cascade Dagger Reproduction Artifake that I purchased from an eBay seller. From the pics this item looked right as rain and has a patinated luster seen on basalt items that have been in contact with alternating salt and fresh water over thousands of years. The fact of the matter is that this is made of a quartzite material that was artificially aged in an alkali solution. The seller claimed this was a family heirloom - in my opinion this seller invented this story. Measures approx 6" in length, interesting study piece. Paid $149 SOLD, Thank You!! 12-22-2016
 

 

 

2918-2016) Set of 48 Rechipped, Reproduction and Questionable Flintknapping Art Items. The longest item measures approx 3 1/2" in length.
A) Bulverde Knife made of Edwards Plateau Flint that has no problems at all with ancient authenticity as it is well patinated and mineralized and was found by TJ Jennings. I included it hear as a nice example of an honest Texas point to contrast against the bulk of the problematic pieces in the listing.
B) Lookingbill or Mallory related side notch made of a gorgeous jasp-agate that I paid $30 at the Temple Show in 2013, unfortunately it has modern rechipping. It was sold to the previous owner by a mainstream dealer running their own auction service.
C) Stemmed dart made of carnelian agate supposedly found in Peru. It is a modern reproduction imho.
D) Wray point made of a veined jasper supposedly found in Colorado, however has modern base notching on what may be an ancient authentic tip
E)
Modern reproduction Rose Springs made of semi transparent obsidian supposedly found in Oregon.
F)
Another stemmed 'Colorado' point made of veined jasper, it is just too fresh looking for me.
G) Miniature Folsom made of Alibates supposedly found in Kansas, x Caleb Scales. Has an appearance of aging but has red flags that cause me to pause, so will categorize as indeterminate.
H) Hoxie Dart Point made of a beautiful lemon and white color agate. Was found in Central Texas. Has abundant metallic residue and is a modern reproduction.
I) Duncan Dart Point made of Elizabethan Petrified Wood as a Colorado find. Has some modern rechipping.
J) Rose Springs Stemmed found on the Columbia River made of a candy cane red and white color opalized petrified wood. May be ancient authentic but lack of mineral deposits around the stem are a concern.
K1) Scallorn or Ensor made of a white color waxy chert. It is likely ancient authentic but has one of the poorest restoration attempts that I have ever seen on part of the stem and blade edge.
K2)
Huffaker arrowpoint made of chert found near the Bear River in Arizona. Could very well be ancient authentic, but doesn't have much patination and light mineral deposits, indeterminate.
L1-13) All of these were part of the Fred Eiserman collection and mare made of chalcedony or agate. They were reportedly found in the Desert SW, however they appear to be Northern Mexico type of points. Some are good as gold, but most have modern rechipping.
M) Pre Columbian Eccentric made of banded obsidian. In my opinion this is an ancient authentic relic, however Stermer believes one distal end may have modern rechipping.
P1-18) Group of Far Western type of dart and arrowpoints made of various regional lithic materials. I purchased these in 2012 from a seller whom definitely had ancient authentic points. Unfortunately the collection he was selling had a bunch of reproductions mixed in. Some of these may be good, but most are modern. That Northern Fox Ear would be a $1-2000+ point if it would pass certify by a mainstream authenticator, but imho is modern. Don't take my word for it though because I have killed many fake points only too see them paper, so gltu.
N1) Chinese Archaic Jade papered by Chicochai out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Honestly this looks old as dirt, but I have major doubts about it because I understand that Chinese artifakers have perfected artificial aging and mineralizing of jade.
N2) Chinese Archaic Jade papered by Chicochai out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Honestly this looks old as dirt, but I have major doubts about it because I understand that Chinese artifakers have perfected artificial aging and mineralizing of jade.
O) This is a $168 purchase that I made believe that it was an effigy Pre Columbian atlatl weight. It has heavy mineral deposits and apparent rubbing polish, however the incised carving is fresh. It may be authentic but someone attempted to enhance it be abrading and the lines which has resulted in too much modern adulteration for me to enjoy owning it. SOLD, Thank You!! 12-22-2016
