Thank you for the additional information.
I can provide estimates of sale for these excavated objects, though I presume since you are a lifelong artifact hunter you have good knowledge of market values.
I am not able to identify the use of the exact use artifacts. If that is information you are seeking - I can opt-out and open your question to all the experts again.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

I will opt-out and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.
I will not be able to respond back after opting-out.
I do hope you find the information that you seek.
