Some more of the relics recently obtained a small collection from the finders grandson. The finder Byron Woodford Baxter died in 1957. His grandson had little information on the other that his grandfather who lived, and died in Grant County Indiana, was into collecting Indian relics.

I thought this celt had some interesting "spots" which may have been odd, but under magnification the spots are deep in the stone and the surface is very smooth

The celt is a very dense hardstone

The light spot on the Celt looks like where the wooden handle was hafted, dark area’s are probably where pitch was applied....most celts don’t show that feature, cool..
