Admiralty Island, Alexander Archipelago, Alaska, United States, North America
1875 or 1876 ?
From card: "Renumbered. Illus. in USNM AR, 1888, Pl. VII, fig. 19, p. 260." Identified in publication as "Ear and Nose Ornaments. Of shark's teeth. Auk Indians, Admiralty Island, Alaska. Collected by James G. Swan."
Anthropology catalogue ledger book lists a collection date of 1876; i.e. this is probably part of the artifacts Swan collected in 1875/1876 for the Smithsonian the Centennial Exposition, possibly accession 4730? See E20848, which is possibly the same or related objects, since E72993 is identified as "renumbered"?
