While people are scrambling to look for their 4 inch Monty's to post, here's a smattering
of spent shells. Their all Monty's even though some are hard to make out.
Just the bases, tips [ not matching ] are in another
5 gal bucket.
Next pic is cause corner tangs are big in the news this morning. . . . . The find [ black object ] might be construed as a mini
C-tang. . .BUT it's actually a Monty with one edge completley reworked like a blade edge
M is probably one of the ones searching through the storeage buckets in the
garage for the best of show Monty.
Til then, here's a pic of her Monty find of 11 - 17
[ on the left in the field display case ]
In case a 4 incher is too deep in the bucket, maybe just a pic of the washed item
from my experience they are usually found not far below the surface but above the marshalls and associated points,i think they are late archaic pieces? i once dug up a 5 1/2 inch montell just 2 inches under the surface which at first i thought was to shallow to be a point and ended up taking a small chip off the edge , it was a beauty and has since been stolen from me. it was dug in gillipie county. i personally think the best concentration of quality yeilding sites are scattered along the balcones escarpment and the fringe lands above. oh how i wish i still lived in kerr county.
All beautiful to look at and so thin to have survived the rigors of , Use, time, and
If your squinting at that small broken,black blob above that I describe as a Montell. . .Corner tang
That is Really a KNIFE. . . .
By timely coincidence, GTwn just posted THE REAL
THING [ no squinting ]
