Collins, Springfield, Ohio. Collection is offered by Garry Mumaw, Versailles, Ohio. Part II of this auction is scheduled for May 14, 2011. Clem and George (grandfather & father) dug on numerous sites, during David's childhood, in Clark County and south central Ohio Counties - Greene, Adams, Clinton, Warren and Scioto. Also, they bought several relic collections for David. The first being Mr. Walter Kelly's collection and Mr. Arthur Altrick collection. Many fine flint, slate, and stone relics came in this collection. The Mr. Arthur Altick collection was purchased in the early 1940’s. Altick had been the curator of the Clark Co. Historical Society and he did several digs on important Clark County sites. Manring Mound (Hopewell high status ceremonial items) and the Campbell Mound Group (Hopewell burial items) explorations yielded very rare ceremonial objects that went into David Collin’s collection before he had graduated from High School in 1950.
