These pipe stems were recovered from an archeological site in Morris County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. Those on the top row have a spur below the junction of pipe stem and bowl. Spurs were used to hold a hot pipe while smoking. The two pipe stems on the left of the bottom row have incised lines that were added after manufacture by the pipe's user. The site had multiple occupations from the Archaic period to the late 1800s and was one of three large Kansa sites along the Neosho River occupied during the mid-19th century.

Date: 1847-1874
