Howdy, I met a few of Ya'll at Digfest this year but unfortunantly I didnt have time to meet all of you.
I have been pickin up points, as I stumble on them, since I was a kid so I dont have many or as much knowledge as most of Ya'll do. I was siftin through some of the web sites that are linked here in Austin Diggers and saw a Langtry advertised for what seems like a great deal of money for what I always thought was an average point. Now what sparked my attention was the fact that the center piece of my meager collection is a G-10 Langtry that I found bout 3 years ago in the neighbors dirt drive way at my lake property. Mine is made of a light brown flint and is real nice. This was found in Rains county of East Texas @ Lake Fork. I know that the holder of a point can ask what ever they want for it and that doesnt mean that it is worth that but it is a good indicator of the true value, give or take 30 percent. Well 30 percent off the listed price of the above mentioned Langtry is still a lot of money. So what makes the Langtry so valuable? I will be leavin to go to the lake in a couple of hours so I wont be able to reply to any posts but I will git back soon as I can. I got to go look for some more Langtrys now!! My camers is of the flop so I will show pictures later if there is any interest.
I am from east Texas and been digging for many moons.I have seen some odd points found in east Texas but no Lantrys.With that said get a picture of it because I bet its not a Langtry but more of a Gary type piont.Without a picture its all a guess..Lets hope its not a Gary point becuse their is not much value in a Gary point.It seems no one likes gary points unless its super fine..If is a Lantry point I would say it very rare to be found in east Texas.I got some nice caddo pottery and arrowheads that came off around Lake Fork.
