I would get them ALL if I were him.

Not sure of the value but very very neat.

Well if it was fired, it will be black with white specks. The specks are mussel shell. Then you know it was for sure Indian made.

They also could have not made it to get "fired". Have you found other things around them, flint, pottery, ect.......
