NINE SPEAR POINTS or ARROW POINTS made of IVORY

These are more rare than harpoon heads.  

These are generally used for catching land animals.  These are in UNUSED CONDITION, dug at an ancient Savoonga (St. Lawrence Island) village site.

SOLD AS A COMPLETE SET of NINE, not to be sold separately.

$2800.00  set is SOLD 1508 thru 1516

Current value: $4000-6000.  Due to the nature of how this set was collected from St. Lawrence Island (no white, no non-native persons were involved nor allowed to dig on the island), these are extremely rare.  I have had this set in my collection for 8 years now and have never seen anything like them since.
