We buy, sell, trade and authenticate affordable authentic ancient Indian arrowheads, Native Indian artifacts, tools and projectile points from all four prehistoric time periods.
We are an independant and professional authentication service and specialize in the evaluation of prehistoric ancient relics from the Paleo Period, Archaic period, Woodland Period, and Mississippian Period from all over the U.S. and Canada going back 14000 years. We also offer relics for sale in our inventory such as Clovis, Cumberland, Folsom, Dovetail, Lostlake, Benton, Beaverlake, Lances, Copena, Drills, Kirk, Adena, and Hopewell just to name a few. We have ancient tools, symbols, game stones, and other artifacts such as Birdstones, Bannerstones, Axes, Picks, Gorgets, and many more ancient relics.

We sell and ship internationally and all buyers are welcome. All arrowheads, artifacts, and relics on this site ARE OWNED BY OUR CLIENTS and not by J & DEE ARTIFACTS. We are simply the middleman between the buyer and seller. We guarantee customer satisfaction with a 14 day money back return policy. All Artifacts sold are believed to be authentic to the best of our knowledge and experience to date.
NOTE: Please read the policies on refunds and authentication fees before buying, or sending artifacts to be evaluated and examined.
NOTE: Like all authenticators we have had people to replicate our coa's with different pictures and information in trying to sell a reproduction piece. As an additional service we offer verification of every certificate issued by referring to our archive. If you are in doubt call us with the certificate number and date and we can verify the certificate's authenticity.
One additional note: I feel it is important enough to add this to the home page. When sending an artifact or artifacts to us to be examined and evaluated, please do not send any Certificates with the relics, if they have any. Just number and write down the provenance/history of the relic/relics such as; county and state where found, who found it (If Known), who's ex-collection it came from, and so on. We do not want to know or care who has papered the artifact/artifacts in the past, we judge the relic based on our criteria and the artifacts own merits. That is why we give an honest opinion based on our knowledge and experience and not influenced by other authenticators' opinions nor do we indulge their politics.

This section contains Indian artifacts and arrowheads, relics, tools such as Clovis points, Folsom, Cumberland, Dalton, and other related artifacts specific to the Paleo time era, which was the first period in time that the native American Indians inhabited the new world(The North American Continent). These are the oldest artifacts to be found in the United States that date back to 14000 B.C.
This section contains artifacts and arrowheads such as Dovetail, Kirk, Benton, Pin tree and other related artifacts specific to the Archaic time period which lasted for over 7000 years. One major characteristic of the Archaic Period was the introduction of "notching" to the arrowheads and since the period covers such a broad time span, more different "types" of arrowheads can be attributed to this era than any other
This section contains relics such as Hopewell, Adena, Platform Pipes, Tube Pipes, Intrusive Mound and other related artifacts specific to the Woodland Period are collectively grouped for the whole North American Continent. This time period is attributed to the start of the hunters and gatherers
This section contains other related artifacts and relics such as Shell Gorgets, Claw Pendants, Pipes and related artifacts most widely known as Fort Ancient and Hardin Village. This time period is also known as the last of the prehistoric periods

?? WHY CHOOSE J & DEE ARTIFACTS ??
A LITTLE FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Years ago, at the age of 9, I found my first arrowhead. This awakened a passion in me and a curiosity about those mysterious ancient Indians that once thrived in a wild place during ancient times. To hold in my hand a relic that a primitive hunter had made thousands of years ago filled me with a sense of wonder. Today there are those that would tarnish that time honored tradition of collecting authentic relics with reproductions they have made out of greed. It is not enough to sell their reproductions as "Indian Art" that they are but to taint the authentic collections for a dishonest profit. I was awakened to this as a young man by Mr. Gregory Perino that started the authentication business to combat the fakes being offered as authentic. The knowledge I picked up from this good man defines the criteria I use today in evaluating a relic whether it be a boatstone, knife, spear point, birdstone, gorget, or whatever the relic may be.
My evaluations are based on the physical appearance of the relic, chemical testing of the mineral deposits, microscopic study of the relics surface, cutting edges, and base. I look for patination, ground sheen, surface, use wear, and tell-tale signs of element exposure. I also look for evidence of modern tool use, fake mineral deposits that have been artificially applied, and the napping techniques known to have been used by that particular culture or time period. It has taken years of research, and continued studies to have and maintain my skills.
Aside from continuously upgrading my skills I avoid the "authenticator politics" where the competitors in this field are always looking for ways of criticizing one anothers evaluations, forming themselves into loose groups/cartels, or working unscrupulous auction houses. I am an independent authenticator, like many others out there, and offer an honest and educated opinion based on a scientific approach developed over time by the top minds in the business.
I encourage everyone to get a stereoscope, learn to identify mineral deposits and to distinguish real from artificial, and build a library. I will help anyone willing to call me and learn about these things. Once you have developed these skills then you can separate the good authenticators from those in it for the money.
IN HONOR OF THE DAKOTA 38
Because of my being part Blackfoot and Cherokee in my heritage I am putting this video as a tribute to the Dakota 38 on my website. PLEASE take time to view this video as it carries a powerful message for everyone.
This film was created in line with Native healing practices. In honoring this ceremony, Smooth Feather Productions are screening and distributing "Dakota 38" as a gift rather than for sale. This film was inspired by one individual's dream and is not promoting any organization or affiliated with any political or religious groups. It was simply created to encourage healing and reconciliation.
