Bob Melrose Collection

Originally from Grayville, IN he lived in OKC most of his life. He had a cafe where he displayed alot of his collection on the walls. He purchased many artifacts from his friend Jimmy Durham.

6"? Mineral Springs blade from the type site, the edges were anciently rechipped.

6 1/2" knife, reported to be from Illinois. Got a nice stain to it.

Anyone recognize the numbering? The handwriting sure looks like Jimmy Durham. I know the paper tag is from Bob Melrose. Normally Bob would have noted on his tag, EX-JHD I don't know what the LO is for. The numbers near the tip are HR-85 and under the location info is 3NP2 over 181. 3 is the number for Arkansas and the county it is from is Poinsett I find no county with the abbreviation NP. If anyone has more information please let me know.

6 1/8" Dalton from Whitehall, AK, Poinsett Co., L'Anguille River missing an ear, tip broken and glued.
