This bannerstone is broken at perforation either because the stone is weakest at this point or because it was intentionally broken as is common with bannerstones at the time of their burial. As is common with the geniculate shape, the perforation is oval rather than circular. Carving and banding are elegantly aligned, with smooth polished surface. The perforation made was with a combination of drilling and scraping to achieve the oval shape.

This bannerstone has unusual flattened surfaces on either side of the spine. It is considerably smaller than most bannerstones and may be a miniature. Its small size may have lead to it being considered a fake. All details of its shape and method of carving, however, appear consistent with an archaic origin of exceptional quality.

This bannerstone is 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. There is also a hole 0.4cm to the side of the spine that indicates Archaic Period repurposing of the stone.

This bannerstone is 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. This piece is exceptionally delicate and small and may have been a miniature. The carving is carefully done to accentuate the natural banding from the spine out to the edge of the wing.

This is a monochromatic stone often chosen for the Shield shape. This particular stone is not a common Shield shape in that it is shorter and more squared rather than a tapered form. It does have the distinctive subtle barrel at the spine and very thin wings common to this type. New England is written on the stone.

This may be a preform or a stone that was begun but not yet finished. In contrast to most preforms it is more fully formed in shape and is pecked over the front and back with both of its edges polished. This degree of pecking and polish is uncharacteristic of preforms that are left less defined in shape and surface. There is a a 0.3cm perforation with an apparent nipple on one side.

Dauphin County, Pennsylvania is noted as the place of origin of this stone in the AMNH archive manuscript. Ohio, however, was written on the stone when labeled at the AMNH. This error may have occurred since the 5 previous and proceeding stones were from Ohio. Note 2/2: This bannerstone is 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. In addition, the broken edge of the spine has been polished and there are three triangular notches carved into the thin edge of the remaining wing that indicate some kind of archaic period reuse.

This bannerstone is 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. Scratches and the letters H H H are incised on either side of the perforation. These markings post-date the archaic origin of the carving.

There are incised marks along the entire surface of the stone. They are carved in groups of 7, 8, and 9 lines. Some bannerstones are marked with grooves along the edge, especially common on Reel shaped bannerstones. These markings appear to be archaic in origin and may have been incised when the stone was carved or added later for unknown purposes. The perforation is oval.

Light olive gray with greenish black banding

This bannerstone is 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. Both wings are exceedingly thin. With bannerstones broken at the spine, it is very rare to have both pieces in. The left wing is chipped at the edge. There are bits of wood and glue in the perforation left over from a recent attempt to reattach the two pieces together. The right wing is 7.6 and the left wing is 7.4.

Waukesha County, Wisconsin; Road’s Farm four miles north of Pewaukee, 1880. Donor A.E. Douglass, purchased from W.E. Woodword on October 31st, 1883 for $1.60.
Brownish gray with greenish black banding
11.410.71.22.30.1109.3-6000 to -1000
This bannerstone is broken at the spine on the lower portion of the right wing and broken 3.0 cm in from the spine on the upper portion of the right wing. These breaks are 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. The upper right wing fragment appears to be reworked and polished, as it is 0.3 cm lower than the left wing. This is an exceedingly fine-carved piece with thin wings and a pronounced high ridge at the spine on both faces.

This finely carved, exceedingly thin Butterfly shaped stone is not and could not be perforated, as other bannerstones were, due to the thinness of the carving across its entire surface. This raises questions about how its use or meaning may have differed from other bannerstones. The entire surface, front and back are incised with script.
