This incredibly well preserved set of Pre-Columbian wood ear plugs (LFG442), on which the geometrically decorated shell and dark greenstone elements are each held in place with an almost invisible touch of contemporary glue, is attributed to the Moche horizon of Peru, c.100-800AD. Not wearable today due to the fragile nature of the wood that has dried and shrunk through the many centuries of entombment, there are certainly few other such pairs that have survived this well...

What a sweet little lady! Measuring a mere 1 3/8” in height, this hand-modeled miniature female figurine (AXH1403R3N4) was found at the site of Cuautitlan by the late Dr. Allen Heflin.

Aside for the overall quality and frequent uniqueness of the artifacts and relics from the Dr. Allen Heflin collection, it’s difficult not to to rank its next most important feature as the extreme care practiced by Heflin in documenting the provenance of almost every one of his approximately 10,000 treasured items. Not all of them were large, or impressive, or complete, or of museum quality, and many were simply the fragments and parts from ritually broken offerings to ancient gods, or pieces ...

This 2 5/8” tall, simply decorated, spread eagle pendant (TF97.148) is from the Veraguas horizon of Panama dating c.500-1200AD. Identified as a harpy eagle, and usually associated with shamanic transformation, this striking wearable pendant was lost wax cast with gold that tests out at about 14K. In overall very good condition, one of the wings has some incipient cracking caused by light bending of the crystallized gold. There does not appear to be any danger of breakage unless a heavy weight ...

This 24” long double-stranded necklace (103.53HD) is assembled from mostly Precolumbian silver beads that had to have been found at a single site!

In addition to very small and intermediately sized hollow round beads, there are four ½” square hollow silver spacer beads. There are a dozen or so elongated and round greenstone beads (presumably turquoise) balanced alo...

Weighing a massive 73.4 grams, this 1 11/16” tall Precolumbian 22K gold bell (100.81HD) is attributed to the Veraguas horizon of Panama, c.500-1200AD. Still retaining its original loose clapper, the toucan-topped bell renders a pleasing though non-resonating tinkling sound. The twin birds represent a theme of dualism frequently noted in Precolumbian art. An unusually attractive example of the great skill exhibited in the art of the ancient gold smith, this beautiful piece, although without a b...

It’s not often that a Precolumbian gold piece can be dated with science...but this superb gold crocodile (TF98.70) lent itself to that approach. Sent to Stoetzer, Inc. of Miami for authentication (check out their site at stoetzerinc.com), this stunning beauty was quickly determined to contain its original clay core. A sample of that clay was extracted from the inside of the crocodile through a slightly widened hole in one of its legs and then submitted to the Kotalla laboratory in Germany for ...
