At the Dr. Skaggs auction a long-time friend sat beside me and kept muttering "What are you buying THAT for?"...but then I watched him buy some "eccentric" flint pieces I thought were fakes, wondering the same...he saw a piece of a flint color "not from around here"--I saw an authentic point of a good flint. Whatever your opinion of the flint, this is a VERY nice Stilwell, made of a heat treated flint--if not Burlington, then it's something in the same lithic family of cherts; 3&1/8" by 1&7/16"--5/16"--3/8" at the thickest where you see the inclusion along the upper blade edge.I seem to remember the provenance of this Stilwell as Jersey County, Illinois, along the Illinois River Valley. Because of the inclusion the blade isn't as 'symmetrical' as some, but the fine gloss of the flint and the strong patination more than make up for it. The only real damage was Early Archaic salvaged on one barb, and slight wear on the basal corner below it. I'd rather describe any damage than have someone buy the piece and notice ancient wear when they unpack it. Typical of Stilwell points, basal grinding seems to be light (but present). Every detail is lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, and checks or M.O.s welcomed--Roy A.
