I came so close to selling my best personal find many years ago. Even let the guy take the frame with it and many of my best points with him. Back then, the site those artifacts came from was still producing and I thought the ride would never end. Fortunately, I changed my mind before he paid me and got everything back. The site was declared off-limits not long after and I doubt that I'll ever come across another like it ever again. It was the place that got me started collecting Indian artifacts and over 30 years later, nothing has come close since.

Sand chip that banner stone is wonderful I’d trade all my bottles for that. Don’t believe we have them in Kansas

A little bit. Of all the folks that knew of that site, I'd bet all the stuff found wasn't 1% of what was out there. The rest was destroyed for all practical purposes by earthmoving equipment. A crying shame. Here's some of the things that I found.
