This second sale of the Lar Hothem Collection has a nice variety of Ohio and Illinois flint, stone, bone and slate artifacts. Lar Hothem, noted author and collector passed away two years ago, and now his collection is going back out to the collecting community. Lar's collection includes the collections he purchased from Dutcher, Hogue and Norbert Bingman. Every item in this sale is from the Hothem collection - no other consignments are included. There are NO reserves on any of these lots, all items will sell to the highest bidder.
Many of the items in this sale are pictured in the books written by Lar Hothem. Some are noted, others are not.
There will be a limited edition book released after the last Hothem auction in January 2009 called " The Lar Hothem Collection & Sale" that will include photos and final sale prices of every item in all three of the Hothem auctions.
