Description

Antique hand forged, 1700’s era, Northeastern American tomahawk head. This was probably used by an early settler, and/or American Indian during its period of use. It is decorated with several filed in lines, on both sides. It is 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. A real piece of history that would display nicely, in anyone’s collection.
