One of the rarest types to find! 2 3/16" Strong Barbed Auriculate point. Minor restoration of less than 1/16" to the end of one barb; the restoration was done by reputable artist Steve Allely. The point was found in 1963 by Bob and Virginia Howard near the Decker Site, in Columbia County, Oregon. This point is pictured in "Wappato Indians of the Lower Columbia River Valley" 1972 by Roy Franklin Jones, Page 171. Also pictured in OAS "Screenings", Sept. 1963. Also see Overstreet Vol. XIII, pg 1288, for reference to rarity and value. This point type was named in honor of the famous amateur archaeologist Emory Strong, author of "Stone Age on the Columbia River". Perhaps a once in a lifetime chance to own a large example of this extremely rare style.
