Description

Up for auction is part 3 of the Walt Podpora Collection of Milford, New Jersey. Walt’s artifact collection includes an impressive assortment of Pennsylvania and New Jersey artifacts as well as the rest of the northeast. Walt’s collection also had an emphasis on the midwest and central states. He is most known for his massive assortment of high-end axes and stone stools from across the country. Walt built an “axe house” to house his thousands of stone tools including axes, celts, adzes, pestles, mortars, soapstone vessels, spades, discoidals and more. In addition to stone tools, Walt’s collection includes some of the finest northeastern arrowheads, blades, bannerstones, pendants, gorgets and other stone implements. Included in this sale is his largest and favorite axe- a southern barbed style measuring 18.5", high end paleo, bannerstones, pendants, gorgets, projectile points, the famous Larry Fry Perkiomen (likely one of the best known examples in private hands) and much more.
