Nice Ohio find Russell, Even though broken, have you tried identifying the type ? Try, PROJECTILEPOINTS.NET
Also an Ohio based dealer might offer a close guess...
Go to ARROWHEADS.COM
After you "enter" the site, all those advertising squares are sellers of something, hit em all looking for Ohio.
I kinda thought the MCINTIRE had some flair to the base like yours.
John, Very nice [ but dirty ] obviously not asuface find. Even though it's great country, we dont hear much about The Marble Falls finds.
Every find anything "unique" made out of the abundant local granite and quartz ! We cetainly find them well down stream from you !
Terrell, a beauty, looks like 3 3/4 inches. Could that be the rare BRAZOS FISHTAIL base ?
glad you like the Marshall. I will post some photos later on of it cleaned up...it is in fantastic shape, a real centerpiece of my collection....
I found it digging on a midden I have been digging on for years (although that really means about once/year, since I live in Atlanta). I like the higher yield South Texas surface hunting a bit better, but the quality and size of the points I get in Marble Falls is hard to beat.
Dan J's neat nutter is interesting, raising this humble neglected kitchen appliance up a few notches.
It appears a hard stone rather than like many CentX linestone [or sand stone ] creations. Could that main, deep, properly centered hole have been from decades of use? And then since it was such a valued applience, a second hole started to extend the usefull life . . . . OR was MS Hiawatha creating a duel cracker to increase production ?
Current front page notables are two Montells found by Dale & Cliff. Translucent naturally and the bases are
pretty close to identical but its interesting how different the outline of the sides are.
One might think all similar points would be the same in all respects ! The staight sided one resharpend ??
seems logical but Montells are so thin I would not have thought they would not break in half with use .!
And a big Perd from Cacey [ could that be OUR Casey ?]
At least in the pic, that Perd has that amazing flaking pattern. . . . . . There is NO flaking pattern !
Except for that one big chunk out on the base, its like a molded plastic item.
A beautiful example of the prolific, humble "Perd "
Another front page update, all best of the best !
Hunter's "gorget" is worthy of a closer look. It appears to be more the "sew on patch" type design rather than just a hang around the neck style.
The pic looks to me like a shell material and if true, making the small holes was a real craftsperson acheivement ! Shell can be a tough "glossy" material to work with. Immagine how small the flint drill bit would have to have been ? And they are close together, cant overdue the drill pressure and risk fracturing out a piece.
Nice going Hunter, too bad the Emerald is missing from the big center hole.
