These rim and body sherds were collected from McPherson County near the Lindsborg area and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1904. They are all possibly from Great Bend aspect vessels, which would date from 1500 to 1800. The two rim sherds are decorated with diagonal tool impressions on the lips. The body sherd has a series of pinched nodes and evidence of two repair holes.
