    Stacey, welcome to T'net. Good to know that others like the history of these too. A trade item that arrived on the west coast in the 1810s (estimates vary). At a time here when manufactured goods (refined metals, etc...) of ANY sort were a luxury. And became trade goods to the indians. At least up your way in Oregon, they are closely associated with that early contact period + indians.

    And since, as you know, there's no shortage of indian history buffs up your way, then these just took on a "bingo game" life of their own. Down here in CA they don't seem to have that "graves" or "indian" trade item connection. They are just simply found in any location that had been settled in the 1810s to 1830s era. But yes, also in rancherias that were distinctly & solely inhabited by the mission era indians.

    I've got a few I can sell. I'll pop you a PM.
