THREE VERY NICE OLD CALIFORNIA NET CLAY NET WEIGHTS--NR:
Here are three nice old clay net weights found in 1937 and 1938. One was found at Bennet-Natomas Land Co. in Sacramento County. Another one was found on Davis Ranch near Perkins and the last one was found on King Ranch in Yolo Co. 1"x 1" and one has a crack but it doesn't go all the way around nor is it very deep. All these beads and/or artifacts are from the same
collection and I do have docs on them all. S.A. Martine is the gentleman
that did the collecting with permission from the land owners back in
the 1930's-40's. The collection has been in storage since the 1950's and
all the items have been tagged and all of them are from within a 45
mile radius of Sacramento, California with the exception of a site at Point Conception in Santa Barbara County and several sites in the state of Nevada, again with permission on private property.
Mr. Martine was well known at the time and was recognized as having the most comprehensive collection of Sacramento Valley artifacts ever amassed and worked closely with Sacramento City College and the University of California. He kept a comprehensive dig log and tagged his finds with site location and date recovered.
The collection was put into storage in the 1950's and has recently been released for sale by the family and we are fortunate enough to be able to offer this wonderful collection of beads, stone and bone tools and some of the nicest Stockton type points and blades we have ever seen.
