This set of four very small Indian made arrowheads is in good original condition. The four Native American bird points are artifacts that I have owned for about 35 years. It came from Lottie Shipley's personal collection of rocks, minerals and interesting things that I purchased from her after she had closed down her shop in Gem Village. Please look at the photos closely, these are very small points, be aware of that before bidding. The tiny point on the left measures 5/8" high & 1/2" at its widest. It measures 2mm. at its thickest. Next point measures 5/8" high & 5/8" wide. It measures 2mm. at its thickest. The next point measures 3/4" high 5/8" wide and 4mm. at its thickest. The tiny point on the right measures 9/16" high & 1/2" wide. It measures 3mm. at its thickest. I will not attempt to identify the type or the location where they were found as Lottie was an enthusiastic rockhound who traveled a lot. Lottie Shipley (1906-1998) was the owner of Shipley's Mineral House in Gem Village, Colorado. Born in Oklahoma, Lottie & her first husband moved to Dolores, Colorado by 1930, where she became interested in minerals & Indian artifacts. During World War ll she worked as a prospector for the US government searching for deposits of strategic metals. After exhibiting at the 2nd annual Gem Village Rock Show in Colorado in 1946, she divorced her first husband & married Elias Eugene Shipley who owned Shipley's Mineral House in Gem Village. Gem Village was a little community of craftsman about 15 miles east of Durango on Hwy. 160. She joined the business which she continued to run after Shipley died in 1955. Shipley's became known as one of the largest & oldest rock shops in the Southwest. The shop handled mineral specimens, Lotties lapidary business & traditional sterling silver & turquoise Native American jewelry. Shipley's closed for business sometime around 1976. I will guarantee the authenticity of any of these artifacts based on Lottie's extensive knowledge of arrowheads & artifacts. Please look closely at the photographs to access the condition, grade, etc. before bidding. It's a great looking set of arrowheads for any serious Native American artifact collector. ***Be sure to check out my other arrowheads that I have listed.**** Condition: Used, Condition: These 4 tiny bird points are in good original condition from collection of Lottie Shipley.
