THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Dang that's small. What in the world were they hunting with those?
That's kinda what I was thinking RGS. I think Hal wants to win that gold medal at any costs.
That made me laugh. I think Hal's dime is a frisbee or something.
I was just trying to show people that might not have a really small point to show, that with a little
clay they can join the weenie club...
Ten cent FRISBEE, HAH Here's how it was done, , , , ,
Just a toadstool under the dime
By way of a makeup penance. . . . Here's another 50 cents worth.....
The experiment did prove effective, DJ was prompted to post that beautiful Perdiz [ shame the tip is broken ]
That would explain why your dime was so blurry Hal.
That's awesome. You had me fooled.
DJ, that is corectO.... It's a focus compromise at that macro setting. I did one with the range pegged just for the point and its CRYSTAL clear
BUT the dime looked like a Frisbee
I love learning new tricks and that micro-point shot was sweet Hal.Are there any tricks to helping the scanner focus more on the artifacts than the scale reference.I tried not using the towel background but the scans had lines all through out.
Oh yeah and what caliber was the projectile that perforated the aluminum plate background,looks awfully large.
Post such as these sure beat ones that don't even deserve mention.My grandmother always said if you don't have anything nice to say it's better to say nothing at all.
Mornin RH, I dont even own a scanner but Ive stood there many times watching expert Michelle
work the magic. Try paper backround [ white & black ]. It will take more learning but she makes the cropping look easy. I think there's a super button that can slightly enhance colors. Cut the first six inches off a $12. meaturing tape OR a $1.15
cloth milinary tape. You there M
Turnabout is fair play but it's surprising when it does happen to you, I never thought anyone would notice !!
I could say that the plate was a souvenier from January 52, Korea, while having a lucky Strike smoke break near the Frozen Chosen. A sniper bullet smacked my Zippo and lodged in a tank tread after
going through this piece of armour.
But it's really just a cardboard painted matt black that I punched a hole through to try a special effects for flint skyshots
Mo, thats a beautiful collection, always good to see the gem like intesity of obsidion. . .
To use your own words in your earlier posting
"what in the world were they shooting with those ? "
Your honesty in photography is very commendable but it's good to see you also have a good flare for the
bizarre "tom Foolery" Those Texas / California points
very clearly say; ; ; ; ; ;
" MADE IN THAILAND "
yeah, mine isn't near as pretty as those glassy toyahs. It's rude, crude and socially unacceptable, kinda like me.
Because I am broke and did not have thirty cents.
Attention DREW. . . I'm bring this ancient posting back in response to your "4th, SHELTER FINDS"
That smallest treasure on your finger tip certainly is worthy of an honorable mention.
Unfortunatly some of these pics have faded into the missing files !
some of my smallest!
Wow,i see that Hal.Those are some very points. i plan on going back this weekend and digging in that nice cool cave.
nice little side notched arrow point, 18mm long by 9mm wide, burlington chert, nice flaking on both sides, personal find June 09, in a plowed field near Springfield, MO.
We have a new contender !!
You all remember Paul who was hurled into the flintdom limelight as the Dad of Hunter who found the
very unique shell Gorget on an old screened THROW PILE !
Well Paul was kind enough to remember me and help me with the smallest Trophy.
Paul gave these to me at the Fred show....
They are from Colorado and thought to be Alibates flint
They are not just flakes, both sides are knapped
I could have got them both on the dime without any overhang, see there is space between them !
Thanks a lot Paul
I think those points were made in times of desperation Hal. Those are mouse or shrew killers. Wonder how big the bow was? Good showing there Paul.
Wanted to THANK YOU PAUL (And Hal for ) For the cutie little bird point!!!
Wonder what they used to get the rat hair from out of their teeth! These used for birds or rats or something smaller?? Grasshoppers maybe????
I wonder about those small points. Were they made for children? Were they a fetish or symbol or offering for a successful hunt? And how about the person who found it? They must have had very good eyesight.
An excellent home for the point! Thank you to Hal and Michelle.
Brought forward 10/17/11 for a very small point found by cgb
So tiny! How do people see those things???
