SIX AUTHENTIC POINTS, HAFTED SCRAPER FROM THE OLD L.L. COOKE COLLECTION RECENTLY PICKED UP PART OF AN OLD COLLECTION ONCE BELONGING TO THE LATE L.L. COOKE OF CHICAGO. COOKE OWNED A CORRESPONDENCE SCHOOL FOR ELECTRICIANS STARTING BACK IN THE 1920'S, AND AT ONE TIME IT WAS THE LARGEST OF ITS TYPE IN THE WORLD. COOKE WAS AN AVID ARTIFACT COLLECTOR IN THE EARLY DAYS, AND HE WAS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FOUNDING MEMBERS OF THE ILLINOIS ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY. WHEN HE PASSED, A GOOD PORTION OF HIS COLLECTION WAS LEFT TO HIS LONG-TIME DRIVER. WHEN THE DRIVER PASSED AWAY IN 1956, HIS COLLECTION WAS SOLD TO THE LATE PETER KESSEL OF LINCOLNWOOD, ILL. KESSEL SOLD SOME OF THE COLLECTION TO THE MITCHELL MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN IN EVANSTON, ILL. AND OTHER PORTIONS TO VARIOUS COLLECTORS BACK IN THE 50'S AND 60'S. THE GROUP I ACQUIRED CAME FROM ONE OF THESE COLLECTORS WHO IS NOW 89 YEARS OLD. MOST OF THE ARTIFACTS ARE FROM ILLINOIS AND THE MIDWEST WITH A HANDFUL FROM SOUTHERN AND WESTERN STATES. THIS LISTING IS FOR SIX POINTS MEASURING FROM 1 3/16" UP TO A 2 1/2" HARDIN PLUS A COLORFUL HAFTED SCRAPER. SOME HAVE NICKS BUT THEY ARE IN GOOD CONDITION OVERALL. THEY ARE GUARANTEED TO BE GENUINE. . STARTS AT 5.99
