RETURN TO PAGE 1  OR PAGE 2

    This pipe was found in the 1950's along with two other pipes in this article from the Coal Draw site in Wyoming. The surface of this pipe has a high polish. It's been handled enough to wear away some of the engraved lines. The lines appear to be tally marks in the form of short parallel lines and some of these lines are bisected with additional diagonal lines. A portion of this pipe was packed with red ochre, indicating that it's purpose may not have been for smoking. It also shows no signs of ever having been smoked. This pipe is made of a tan steatite with black inclusions and it measures 4 5/8 inches (11.7 cm) long and 2 7/16 inches (6.2 cm) in diameter.
