    Well. It looks like I can't post the pics from photobucket anymore without paying for it. And I can't figure out how to use the photo loader on here with my phone

    Curt- I never saw a signature on it but the piece had been doctored up and I did not clean it when I tested it. Beautiful material for sure and worth every bit of several hundred $ as modern. When I saw it selling for that kind of money I just wanted to scream out don't buy it but there is no way of communicating with buyers both before and after the sale is made. Really hope that somehow they or someone they know stumbles across this information in order to get their money back. Mr. B----- should be tarred and feathered! People like him ruin it for everyone - it's no wonder people think that most authenticators are crooks. That piece did not slip through the cracks - it was pushed!

    Would an authentic Ross blade be made of Tecovas jasper?

    That COA should never had happened it's total corruption- not an oversight.

    I thought that was likely one of yours, Curtis. Yeah, that kind of thing is disturbing for several reasons.

    Not likely. The Hopewell knappers gathered some exotic material including obsidian from Yellowstone, but I've never seen any of their work made with Texas materials.

    Mine was only signed with ink so it was probably acetoned off or something. I used to scribe my points but I always lose my scribes and on many materials they can be hard to use. Plus they can be covered up with false patina or buffed out too. Now I sign my work with ink to stand out for collectability more than fraud prevention.
