Moore Collection Dade / Polk County Missouri (SOLD)
The Moore Collection was collected over two generations by the Moore father and his two sons. Most or all of the artifacts were found in Dade and Polk counties of 'Missouri on Turnback Creek, the Sac River or around Stockton Lake area. There are about two dozen pieces that were found in Maryland whne the Moores lived on the East Coast for a short time. They are easily indentifiable as they are either darky Rhyolite or a grained white quartz. There is one exceptional piece in this group. The rest of the collection from Missouri spans the Early Archaic to the Missippian cultures. There are some exception points in this collection. My favorites being the Adena, Aftons ans an Angostora (possibly Agate Basin). The points are glued to boards and ready for display or they can be removed with soapy water. Below are the main images showing the whole collection and by board. This collection will be sold as a group and not available to sell choice pieces. There are approximately 685 pieces in the collection. So they are priced at less than $4 per artifact. There is one Stone axe that their father made a handle for.
