Product Description

IMAGINATION
IMAGINATION: I see the Buffalo grazing on the once green fertile prairie. I see the native Indian surveying the vast herd. I see the many type of spears used to kill only what the Indian needed for food, clothing and shelter. I see the past denied me except what my mind will allow me to see. What do you see? You may see only A NICE SPEAR FOUND BY JEFF SCOTT AND ANTIQUE COINS (BUFFALO NICKLES AND INDIANHEAD PENNY) You may be right, if so, chalk this display up to my vivid imagination! You will decide if you will ever see this type display again. It is a lot of hard work.

FACT: When I was a young man I was a personal friend of the man who took the picture of the Indian on the Buffalo nickel. This man's name was Hugo P. Cook. He was a personal friend of Chief Iron Tail. Hugo took the picture that was later commissioned by the government for the face of the Buffalo nickel. I have a lot of Hugo's personal memorabilia which I cherish as valuable artifacts. He was the man who took the only picture of the first Wright Brothers flight. He was there when aviation was born.

FACT: An old mountaineer in the Ozark Mountains during the winter of 2,000 sat around his pot belly wood stove and spent the winter reflecting on his past and admiration for the American Indian. He is a master whittler and from his memory he shaped the many spears he had found over his lifetime. He used the finest of wood from the local Cedar of the mountains, shaped, chipped and serrated it into works of art. To old to hunt in the winter but young enough to fish in the spring he finished his work at winter end. I bought all 526 hand carved spears he made that winter.

The display is 8.50" long and 6.50" wide. The story of IMAGINATION is added to the back of the display.
