HUGE SUSQUEHANNA BROADSPEAR SOLD
Offering a Giant example of the very desirable Transitional Period SUSQUEHANNA BROADSPEAR. This is a classic swept - wing example, made from a nice mottled blue/grey Rhyolite, and measuring just a 16th of an inch shy of 4 3/4" x 2 3/8". Uniformly wafer thin, with no stacking or high spots. This came out of an old collection, and unfortunately, someone ground the last 1/4" of the tip. I have seen this fairly often in old collections,as the collector wouldnt want a point like this to have a chipped up tip, so they would grind the damaged tip into a "point". The good news is, it is patinated the same as the rest of the point, with no change in color, which would make it much more obvious. The other upside is, that if the tip were perect it would easily be a $800+ piece. Would look great as the centerpiece of a frame of Susquehanna Broadpoints. In almost 40 years of collecting have only seen about a dozen Susquehannas in this huge size. Additional photos available upon request via email. Ex. Gene Barbieri collection, found Lancaster Co. Pa.
