THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Well, you blew mine away Glenn. Anyone else?
Kracky DJ, Thats evry bit as bad as saying " select just one book that you can take into exile on a desert Isle for the rest of your life"
In the present case, I would have to choose the firing
I have to have at least three, not based on size, or
quality but personal finds history. They are;
1. My most significant first creek find seven years ago.
It's a nondescript square base. Delicate pink hue,
I [ we ] were so desperate to have a good "arrowhead"
I used that putty epoxy to form the missing half. My
putty was more deep purple!. . . GORGEOUS. More of
the memory, Michelle actually spotted it first, it was
"floating " in the current like a leaf. Good hearted soul said I could have this wonderfull tresure !
Item 2. My best paleo find. From "waterfall site"
Heavy rock moving and then it was behind roots of one
of those trees that grow tight into rock crevases,
just where ten thousand years of time would take it.
Item 3. The "big one". A totally unexpected find and
then one solid year of legal hassle to keep it. Met more people and got more publicity than I ever wanted.
Not all good memories but more than some of my other
. . . . . .
This time next year DJ, may you have the same
tough decicions to make
Yeah, I hope so! Hal, I didn't expect you to post, but I remembered Frank or somebody helped you with posting pics.
Here is my favorite point it is 4 1/4" long.
a Killer Clovis
Man, that's some clear material, Wayne.
Brad, you crack me up man.
Wayne, very nice!
Beautiful That looks almost good enough to be " the find of the day " . . .
May we know what county
Surfacing 0r digging
SH & Brad
This was a surface find, in gaines county last november.
Here is two of mine./Users/user/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Originals/2008/Roll 18/RSCN0585.JPG
Sorry all, im working on it. void(0);
Hay there Bill!!!
Thanks for trying to post! You can always use the
"Preview Post" at the bottem of the message to see IF you got it right BEFORE you use the POST !
Try it! If HAL can do it anyone can!
this made me think of something. you know those rating charts on some websites? The ones you can vote on and it will give you a pie, or bar graph that tells you who's in first, second, third? That would be kinda cool if we had a "FIND OF THE YEAR". Whoever thought they had a heck of a find could submit it and then everyone could vote on the "FIND OF THE YEAR" around Jan. 1. Just thinking...
Bill, dont let the s deter you,they ed at Alfred E. Newman too,
and look how well he did
See "I DIG YOUR DIGGER FORUM, SEPT 26 " [back point chatter ] for some clues
on that Photobucket biz
Trav, Great new idea but it might not run a full year,
Wayne just posted the winner for this year
I hear ya Hal. What a point! I'd love to find half a dozen of those.
Me and my wife are planning on being at Digfest 08 I will bring my Clovis.
This will be our first time to come can't waite to meet everyone, and enjoy some good digging, and good eating, see you there.
The NW corner of Gaines county , Where Wayne reports he found that beautiful Clovis point, is only a mear 95 miles from Clovis New Mexico [ where the first
point of that type was first found ]
The Alibates quarries are also in that part of the world
Wayne, that's one I'd like to see. Sure has brought up some interesting conversation, huh? I'm no detractor, either. I have no reason to not believe you. I have some contacts with 48 sections around Denver City. Probably wouldn't have a problem with us poking around their place. I just need to check. See you at digfest if I don't have to work.
I know a bunch of people around Denver City, do you mind me asking who they are i might know them, if you don't want to say who they are here you can email me at email@example.com.
Will be looking forward to meeting you if you are at dig fest.
You have some awesome points, Frio, Jetta,Bulverde,pedernalis,and montell, very nice.
That is a great Bulverde, no book examples with barbs that long, maybe the Bulverde family had a black sheep from the Marshal family visiting their camp
How many diggers named "Montell" can there be I seem to remember there was another guy named Montell
that posted an unbelievably classic FRIO! ! Cant be sure, I cant find it in the back chatter topics.
Classics like those belong in the next edition of the money book for future dreamers / scholars
Chris, that is a beautiful point, thanks for sharing with us.
that is KNOCKOUT That looks about gem stone material !
It also rivals [ or passes ] the example in the money book listed as " one of the best known "
DID YOU SEE THE PRICE
Impressive example Chris, I think it's better than the one in moneybook. You have a truely valuable specimen of the type. Thanks for sharing it!
it's hard to pick a favorite,so i'll say this one.it turns clear when wet.
thanks for the input guys. I'm assuming the money book you're referring to is Overstreet? That's the only point book at the local Hastings.
Roy, That is a gem quality find, A jewelry nut might mount it to make a ring [ just for special events like
wedding and divorce parties]
Just out of curiosity, next time your in your favorite disco, you might run it under a U/V
light, Maybe that material has some flourecing properties. . .[ A ring that glows in the dark ? ]
You too are in the high dollar birdpoint club. . .Your find looks to me exactly like it's from the same family as Chris' find shown above [ easier to see similarities if you stand on your head to get them going in the same direction ]
Chris, Yeah $$$ book = Overst
Prices are "flexible" dont quit your day job but its an excellect fast reference guide
nice cat. chris,i have a few more you need to see,i'll
post them later.
Chris, you picked a really tough weekend for show N tell requests Most real
diggers are still stuffing sausages with venison and trying to find the bottom
of the "Jim Beam" jug
. . . . . HOWEVER.. . . . . I am SO dee-LIGHTED with my new find, just Unearthed SEVEN HOURS AGO after a
couple of thou in black obscurity. . . . I will risk
having TWO favorite points on this topic
The point is a G-11 MARCOS, still completely covered with the original scale from life very deep in the
white caliche [ BELOW the tan ! ]
I'm showing next to Dwains " best of show " because mine is obviously much
shorter. . . . .BUT . . . . . base & barbs fit exactly over the book specimen. . .
Can you make out the $$$$$$$$ ?. . .
Sorry to exhume this ancient topic. . . . but. . . .the story continues
My above post of Sept 9th shows an EMPTY frame [ # 1 ]. I had to get the item out of the bank security box. . . . here it is..
As a bonus from this desperate time in history [ never found a full point ] I had epoxied wire frames
to indicate where the missiong portion should have been.
A routine farce the phossil guys use
Kinda going back a few days. But SH are you saying you are an old Fossil
