An absolutely killer Knife River Clovis.
The artifact comes from the famous Dr. Don Dickson collection of Lewiston,
Illinois. Dr. Dickson was one of the original owner's of Dickson
Mound's museum in rural Lewiston. The Clovis is heavily patinated and
has the white and cream colored frosting that Knife River exhibits with age.
The artifact does not come with any provenance. Unfortunately Dr.
Dickson did not keep detailed records for a large part of his collection.
At any rate, if you are a Knife River or Clovis collector here is your
chance to own a wonderful piece for a reasonable price. The Clovis
comes with a John Berner COA dated 3/27/97.
