Nice WX dig day, soils damp but good. . .EXCEPT a low area right on the bed rock.
The same low that originally collected the flint bits also held the recent rain ground water.
That section was pure black axle grease !
Still a fun day. . . .
No flash of beautiful flint or that lovely "clink " of flint. . . Only the shape defines a find from
any other mud clump. . .
Nother insitu from breakfast, It's a true heartbreaker cause its empty. . .
overall pic of unwashed finds. . .
Little closer of the find of the day [ not Dorothy's slippers ! ]
Anybody know for sure what name to hang on this long slender point, Badger says no drill. [ note freshly washed display hand ! ]
Hey sh good to hear yall can dig again, it's a little muddy down here but it digs good. As for getting a frame I've just got my first, and I'll be ordering a second as soon as I find another six quarters haha. And as for your blade response kinney never crosses my mind though it may well be,we found it up top and one possibility is that it washed off the bluff, as it was found about six feet away. An instance of this happening was found 20 feet to the right I dug a plainview angostura and an early looking fluted triangular point only six inches deep and maybe a foot away fr each other that were the same proximity to the bluff as the big blade.
I'd like to consider it an Angostura just by shape. The finder would have to chime in re grinding.
It fits good with depth, it was in a large hole in the actual stone bedrock, cant get any deeper than that.
Sorry to bother anyone with that going back to look at other links but there are two finds that
have a direct bearing on this ID. . .
1. back to front page, on right column, click ONE EYE JACK W.THERMOM., AUG 2008.
No trouble IDing that 3 5/8 Ango.
2. Search in the old message postings for SAMS DIG ! GREAT FIND ! ANGOSTURA 7 7/17 ! last post date
Similar shape to point in question, just a bit longer !
You can probably get an idea how excited the poster was by checking the fractional number of his measurement !
