Item: HS188   *NEW*     TOM DAVIS COA -  G-10
Description: Un-Finished Gneiss Banner Stone - This is an Extremely nice example of the manufacturing process of these Banner Stones.  It is made of Gneiss, which is a metamorphic rock, and is almost completely shaped.  The Pre-historic man had started drilling from one end using the "reed drilling" method which was done with a fire-hardened piece of Cane cut of just above the knuckle of one segment.  In many cases this hollow segment of Cane would have been filled with sand which fed out and created an abrasive to help in cutting through the stone.  The bottom of the drilled hole on this Banner Stone has the distinctive "nipple" which is a result of the "Reed Drilling" process.  (see photos).  This fine Banner Stone was found in Northern Kentucky along the Ohio River by Chris Crecilius.  It comes with a Tom Davis COA grading it a G-10.  From our personal collection.  Monty & Jewdy Pennington

Item: SB110
Description: Green Banded Slate Pick Banner Stone - Here is a Green Banded Slate Pick Bannerstone with an Ohio Valley Provenance.  It comes with two COA's.  One from Jackson Galleries dated 2/10/2006 and another from John Berner dated 8/15/2002.  John Berner states that this is indeed an "authentic, very symmetrical example from the mid Archaic period that has had "historical" cleaning"!  What this means is that most of the ancient patination has been removed by rough abrasive cleaning in modern/historic times.  Thus..... I am selling it on that basis.  I have taken PLENTY of good photos so you can judge the condition for yourself, plus there are photos of the two COA's.  Without..... this "historical" cleaning this would have been a very high dollar Banner.  Lee Tuggle purchased Bannerstone from Gary Mumaw at the Columbus, Indiana Show several years back.  Ex- Lee Tuggle, Ex- Gary Haulman, Ex- Phil Mize
