You are bidding on 1 LARGE percussion flaked handaxe, part of a collection given to me 37 years ago when I was in college. The collection belonged to an old gentleman, now dead, who shared with me that his "finds" had come from the Mojave Desert east of Barstow, CA when he was actively collecting in the 1930's. In 1976 I took the collection to the San Bernardino County Museum to authenticate the pieces. Ruth DeEtte Simpson, the County Archaeologist confirmed for me that these hand-axes were definitely Lake Manix Lithic Industry artifacts of the Mojave Desert. She went on to say that they appeared to be identical to surface finds on desert pavements in the area of the Calico Hills Archaeological Site near yermo, in which Dr Louis Leakey was Project Director. Dr Leakey shared with "Dee" that the artifacts found in the Mojave looked just like those found in East Africa. Dee Simpson went on to say to me that these pieces were of an origin a minimum of 10,000 years in age. Most likely ranging upwards to 19,000 years in age. Unique scarce collectible!
