A Colonial American halberd head from the late Jim Dresslar Collection, relic hunter and owner of the American Frontier Museum in Bargersville, Indiana. Mr. Dresslar had an outstanding collection of relics dating from the pre-historic period up to and including Wounded Knee. His collection contained a large and comprehensive display of, amongst other items, Trade Silver, Powder Horns, Indian Guns, Kentucky Rifles, Stone artifacts, Accoutrements, Frontier Knives, etc. He died in 2011, creating a void in our collecting community yet providing a vast number of relics to be passed down to present, and future collectors. This is a real piece of early American history, once displayed in Jim’s museum, and would display nicely, in anyone’s collection. A great antique hand forged relic pole arm.
It is pictured in John Baldwin’s book Indian War Clubs on the American Frontier, on page 47.
