Shipping included on this very well made Edwards County, Illinois, Celt--part of the now closed Norman Reid "Indian Hill Museum". The balance of this Celt is excellent, a very well made with highly smoothed bit-area polish. All of the surface was pecked and polished, but the surface (other than behind the bit) has a sandpaper-like feel. The rougher surface may have made a tighter grip when inserted into a wooden handle--can't imagine it would slip much. There are a couple of plow scratches beside the written provenance--minor, but they're there. Note an interesting feature, the bottom (top?) edge of the Celt has a deliberately flat surface Generally both top and bottom are rounded--not this time. Speculation, maybe, but was that done to drive wedges under the sinew, hold the stone head more tight? That's my best guess. Nice piece, lifetime guaranteed real. Checks are ALWAYS welcomed, cash or M.O.s, but paypal is not taken-Roy A.
