I'm up but not necessarily awake
Glad the experts made a determination on your find.
Sorry I was wrong but it was just a field appraisal !!
If you remember, I said it should be worth $2,000.-
Well the reference Larry refers to is $3,000.-
.......AND.....that was 2years ago price. . . . AND. . . . the book one is ONLY 4 1/4 inches ! ! ! ! !
You are a to Surfacers the world over
well i dunno i looked at overstreet and im confused how do you guys determine how much its worth?
The Overstreet guide lists the 1st $ figure as what a dealer would pay for it & the 2nd $ figure is what the dealer would sell it for.
Lee, what a awesome point, was glad to meet you at dig fest, hope you had as much fun as we did around the camp.
wayne i enjoyed meeting you to . where u the guy with the corner tang ? im bad remembering names lol
youre a stowe ? i have stowe's in my family
i taked to dwain rodgers and he saw the pic and says its def a ensor without a doubt
thank you for your input
Me and my wife and brother-in-law were the ones in the rv with the "fart machine".
You say that you have stowes in your family where are they from?
I don't remember being around your camper, Wayne. Haha!
A fart machine is a battery operated box that has fart sounds in it which is activated by remote control so you can put in in your back pocket and make fart sounds when ever you want to and that is what we were doing at the camp fire, my wife was the one that had it in her pocket and making like she was farting.
wayne my grandmother on my moms side was a stowe ..libby stowe her dad was either oscar or andrew stowe and her mom was cora stowe from san antonio ?? any realation ?
sounds complicated I just like the standard large can of beans with chopped onion topped off with several cans of beer.
Hey Lee , I'm gonna throw out the Early Stemmed card. Looks like ensor or fairland or .....Awesome point man!

I checked with my sister and she didn't know of any of our kindfolks that live around san antino so i guess that we are not related, take care now.
well darn we are not related oh well your one of my friends now and that makes us family :)
Thanks for being a friend, and family, take care now.
Maybe i will see you at one on the digs.
Lee, I think that this is an Ensor knife, and the notching characteristics will vary with the size of the blade to the makers benefit of secure hafting for a handle. Notching variations do occur on a number of barbed point types that were made as knives. As Dwain had pointed this out to me before, I think it becomes important to brainstorm the intended use of the artifact before assigning a final determination of the type. This one is not the largest I've seen, but it is high quality/ grade. Unfortunately, the Overstreet book is a fantasy on it's pricing range values. It is flagrantly refered to as the Overprice book by dealers and show vendors here in Texas. As a show vendor, reducing the books expressed values by 40 to 50% will put you in the ballpark reality of what most items actually sell for.
Thanks for showing your very nice find.
