SUPERB Large Burgundy PA Jasper Perkiomen Point Arrowhead NJ MD NY DE VA OH WV

The late, great Larry Fry, dubbed these rare small base Perkiomens, "button base" Perks. They are rare, as I have only seen a handful in 30+ years of collecting. Their defining feature is a base that is small, relative to the overall size of the blade. I remember one of Larry favorite Perkiomens was a 6" brown Jasper one with a tiny "button base" found on a farm along the Susquehanna in Washington boro, where Larrys farm was. I believe it sold for about $5k when his collection went to auction after his death. This Perk is made of a pretty burgundy colored Jasper with some greyish hues. Beautiful Perk, but it does have an ancient gash out of the edge of one of the shoulders. Would easily be a $200+ Perk, if it didnt have that. Measures 2" x 1 1/4". Ex. Ed Stecewicz collection. SE Pa or NJ find.
