You guys have some amazing collections, I found a broken axe head when I was a kid and I have found lots of pieces but never any perfect points. My cousin who farms near me has found lots of them over the years and looks for them all the time.

I had a university archeologist tell me that a lot of what we like to call bird points were misnomers. The smaller the diameter of the point the easier it pierced a deer or elk hide. Then the foreshaft would break off and the animals running would cause the point to shred lungs and vital organs as it see-sawed.

Yep, you guys have some very nice arrow heads, and all. Years ago there was a local man that owned a sporting goods store, he had a hundreds. Coin collection too. He was big into metal detecting. Civil War stuff too.

Years before he died he sold all of it, he knew that his daughter didn't have a clue what it was worth, so he left her the money. My goodness, that's been 30 years ago.

Bought my first metal detector off of him.

Thanks fellas. Found them both when I was trapping in our deer lease. When I actually hunt for them, nothing.

each culture is measure in the way they formed new projectile points
from the thrusting spears
to the side notching
to atlatl throwing spears
and down to the smaller sizes
then about 3000 bp they found and smelted copper out of the Great Lakes region and a whole new technology started replaced by;
even the copper pots got cut up from the trade with Europeans.

wait till you see some of the Small tools of the Artic inhabitants, we are talking micro fleshing tools, smaller than a thumb nail.

I've often thought that when Indians found old arrowheads they must have recycled them. I wonder how many have been lost a time or two.

I think it is an ice spud?? Any ideas?

I believe it's what they call a tongue pipe, but I ain't no expert at positive identification. I do know there are some Dalton, Schneider, Adena, Graham Cave, Scott's Bluff,and Sedaila points in there. Have several that I've found right around my house that two experts can't ID as to which tribe they can be attributed to.


Thanks
