I'm no expert. I buy a lot of points, and in my experiences, if it looks too good to be true, well you know the rest of the story. I hope you didn't pay too much for this piece. I never overpay without a COA, no matter who it is. Wish you the best on it, send it to Dwain Rogers, and get the final answer.
Dont be negative.....look on the bright side.....even IF it is a modern reproduction, it looks top quality and and is well worth what you said you paid for it. Keep it under your pillow until you dig up one yourself [ course the one you dig up might not be as perfect as what you've got!! ]
JEREMY, I AGREE WITH ALL WHO HAVE SAID IT IS MODERN, AND IT WILL COST YOU $20 + POSTAGE TO SEND IT TO DWAIN ROGERS TO FIND OUT FOR SURE. IF YOU DECIDE TO EVENTUALLY SELL IT, YOU CAN STILL FETCH A GOOD PRICE AS A REPRODUCTION.
Hey guys I just got my point back from Dwain today. He told me it is a modern point, and he knew the guy who made it. He did not mention a name, but said he was from Houston, and that this guy taught him how to knap back in 1986. So at least I know something about it now.
It's still a nice piece and even has some history behind it !! [ the purchase story and made by the man that TAUGHT the man. ] You might consider a frame of repos, Modern knappers knock themselves out to use the most exotic materials possible and they are gorgeous, check the venders at the shows.
