    I don't even know where to start . Hats off to
    flint. These are the most amazing photos .Hoss
    you need to go public with this thread and let the world see these . You could make a hard cover
    book and it would sell like crazy ... just saying
    I personally don't know any collector that would not want this for a coffee table / reference book . This would give any off the books out there a run for the money . Wow .... wow
    I know what I am doing over coffee tomorrow . Thanks to all the real pieces each of you collected .

          Hey Jason, I just got back from my road trip. Yes they are very nice ancient beads. They are biconically drilled with the drill holes meeting in the center. I have 40.
