Item: FP629    *NEW*  THE BEST OF THE BEST    INVESTMENT GRADE
Description: St. Louis Style Clovis - We at Penbrandt Prehistoric Artifacts are both pleased and excited to be selected to offer for your pleasure the DeBorde Clovis.  One of THE most Exceptional pieces of flint to surface in the last 35 years.  It was found by my good friend Jack Deborde as a surface find in February of 1990 in Bourbon County, KY in a rough plowed field that had been turned under in November of 1989.  It is my opinion from a surface examination under a scope that this exceptionally huge Paleo is made from a highly patinated piece of Sonora Chert.  Other opinions over the years have called it Coshocton or Fort Payne but I believe Sonora is correct.  It measures 4 7/8 inches long and 2 inches wide.  It is very thin and extremely well made.  It is fluted approximately 2/3rds of it's length on both sides (see photos).  There is a burin fracture on one blade edge slightly back from the tip that is as ancient as the blade.  (see photos)  Some of this style of Clovis are believed to have been used in the harvesting of thatch from substances found on the blades.  Make no mistake, this is a premier artifact that deserves a truly appreciative collector!  It was first published in the "Prehistoric American", Vol. XXXVII, Number 2, in 2003 on pg 14.  It was next pictured in the "Central States Archaeological Journal", Vol 55, No.1, in January of 2008.  It was again published in "Ancient Indian Artifacts", Volume 1, by Jim Bennett in 2008 on pg's 196 & 197.  Finally, it was also pictured in "Extraordinary Fluted Points of the Tennessee Valley Region" by Ellis E. Whitt in 2010 on pg 44.  This exceptional offering will be shown at limited engagements only.  If you have not examined this exceptional piece before, arrangements can be made for you to do so.  Serious inquires only.
