Native American Oddities and Eccentrics

The artifacts on this page are not the everyday common items we find as collectors such as arrowheads, axes, celts, etc. They are relics that have specific uses other then the normal relics we commonly find. Some examples of these types of artifacts display use and wear that is hard to explain, (even by professional archaeologists). I find these items interesting and collect them whenever I can. Some of the items we are showing here are not necessarily rare, but they are very uncommon.

This Etley Eccentric came from West Central Missouri and is obviously broken. I believe this was an effigy type and would have had two more "legs".
