Grayish olive green with dusky yellow green veins with areas of rust and cloudy white
17.43.91.22.40.318796000-1000 BCE
This Curved Pick bannerstone is finely carved and highly polished with one tip broken with no patina along the surface of the break suggesting that the break might have occurred in the 19th c. when the stone was found. There is also a curved gash along the surface of one side similar to the gash on AMNH 13/105; both gashes may have been inadvertently caused by metal agricultural tools. Madison Co Va A. G. Grinnan is written on the stone.

New Fairfield County, Connecticut. Donated by B.B. Kellogg on November 13th, 1872.
n/a
Light olive gray with greenish black banding
18.75.21.32.30.286.76000-1000 BCE
This stone was finely carved and polished to compliment the concentric natural banding of the slate stone. There is a 0.1 ridge carved at the spine on one side similar to AMNH DN/128. The stone has some abraded areas and was broken at the spine either because the stone is weakest at the thin surface of the spine or because it was intentionally broken at the spine as is common with bannerstones during the Archaic period. The two pieces of the stone were glued back together with a pitch-like substance, presumably in the 19th century. Both of the finely carved thin tips of the stone are broken; one side has been repaired. B.B. Kellogg and Conn. are written on the stone. 11528 is incised next to the perforation. Published in Knoblock (1939) Pl. 230, no. 4.

11.54.91.11.60.2107.16000-1000 BCE
This Single Notched Butterfly bannerstone is carved out of a stone that has different banding patterns and color on each side, a challenge for the Archaic sculptor to center his composition on these two sides. The surfaces are polished, though uneven in contour. Woodman Michigan is written on the stone.

This is a cast of a now lost bannerstone that was originally excavated along with seven other bannerstones by A. E. Douglass in 1871. Published in “A Find of Ceremonial Axes in a Florida Mound,” The American Antiquarian (1882): 100-109; and in Bruce John Piatek, “The Tomoka Mound Complex in Northeastern Florida,” Southeastern Archaeology Winter (1994) 109-118. All eight bannerstones were loaned to the NMNH on December 4th 1881 and retuned to Douglass on March 13th, 1882. Only three of the eight casts were entered into the NMNH collection. Florida is written on the cast that is chipped in a few places revealing the plaster beneath the painted surface. Argillite is written in the manuscript to identify the original now lost stone.

This is a cast of a now lost bannerstone originally excavated along with seven other bannerstones by A. E. Douglass in 1871.

Florida is written on the cast that is chipped in a few places revealing the plaster beneath the painted surface. Diorite is written in the manuscript. This bannerstone is very similar to AMNH D/142. The diameter of the perforation of this stone is smaller and there is no dark brown band 1.6 cm from the edge, a detail the cast makers would most likely have included had this been a cast of D/142.

The Crescent bannerstone is masterfully carved with highly polished surface with several chips and worn at the perforations. “Ploughed up in a field” is written in ascension manuscript notes. “Pagodite or agalmatolite” is written in the manuscript to identify the stone type. Upon closer analysis this appears to be serpentinite that is commonly found in Virginia. Va is written on the stone with ascension number incised below.

This Crescent bannerstone has signs of wear at the perforations and a prominent gash on one side similar to that on NMNH A7122. A slight indentation is craved and smoothed on one side of the stone centered on perforation. This is one of several bannerstones stolen from the NMNH collection sometime between 1972 and 1979 and then anomalously returned in the mail in 1995. Pagodite or Agalmatolite” is written in the ascension manuscript. Upon closer analysis this appears to be a Pyrophyllite rock.

Found near Napoleon, Henry County, Ohio. Purchased from Mrs. Annie E. Frazar for $2.00 on June 14th, 1895
n/a
Olive gray with dark greenish black banding
18.73.42.60.3237.46000-1000 BCE
The Pick bannerstone was broken diagonally across the perforation either because the stone is weakest at the perforation or because it was intentionally broken as is common with bannerstones during the Archaic period. The break is along the banding which might indicate that it was struck at the perforation and broke in a perfect oval along the banding. At some point after it was broken, possibly in the Archaic period, two holes were drilled to repair the stone with some kind of plug. Both pieces were additionally glued with adhesive presumably in the 19th century. Mrs. A. E. Frazar is written on the stone.

Olive gray with greenish black banding and reddish brown patina
18.38.71.11.60.3186.56000-1000 BCE
This is a finely carved and polished Knobbed Lunate bannerstone with very delicately articulated knobs measuring 3.2cm. One of the knobs is broken with remnants of adhesive presumably used in the 19th century to reattach the now missing piece. There is a depression, or smoothed over gash, at the center of the stone on one side. The banding of the slate is barely perceptible beneath an overall coating of reddish-brown patina especially heavy at and under the carved knobs. Published in Knoblock (1939) Pl. 227, no. 5. W. Va B.J. Wilson is written on the stone.
