THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
So anyone ever found a Cumberland in Texas? Has anyone found a similar point?
Here's me trying to get out of the ID business and I may actually ( possibly ) have ID'd a very elusive
See brought up posting " POINT IDENTIFICATION ASSISTANCE " BY DIGBROS... Read SILVER'S input.
Another Brazos "fishtail " ?? Hope so, thats a rarebe
All very impressive finds.
Just noticed...that one point has almost the EXACT base as Idahoe keeps posting every 3 months as a Mystery point. ( to see, type in " MYSTERY POINT " in Search block above )
very nice!!! your handle is very appropriate.that big blade is awsome.
Thanks, the big Darl unstemmed blade made my day. It's too bad I nicked the little Bazos Fish Tale or whatever it is. Very weird looking point.
that stange looking point looks very close to the victoria point in my 8th edition,one of which is a dead ringer.early archaic, what do you think?
8th edition? You have a pic to display? Thanks.
I moved my pic and now there gone AUGHHHH!
Now that's a toss-up. The Uvalde's that I've seen have more of a shoulder then the Victoria. Basal grinding probably would be the clue.
Mine had no basal grounding. I'll try and repost a pic.
This looks like it should be a Paleo type point.
Kind of a dumb question but what's it made of. I see the inclusions and it almost looks like petrified wood. Mabbe my eyesight is getting back in my old age. If a Victoria, then it'd put it in the early Archaic time frame.
That's one cool point, never seen one of those before.
I don't think's it's Palmwood. Just specks in the flint. Found near LaGrange Texas. If it was from East Texas I might think it was Palmwood. I haven't found any petrified wood points in this area. Of course I haven't hound any points like this at all. First one I've seen like this..
I posted my palm wood point here about a week ago. There's some palm down here in my area. The better of the petrified palm flakes that I've found look just like flint. Still, that's a neat point whatever category if falls into.
It may be Palm. I'm no expert about anything. It was found below a Darl layer. Not finding much. Just a pocket of points here and there. Gets boring then you find some then it goes dry again. Not much in the way of flakes. I hope to find some more like this and it's not just a 1-off. Going again in the morning. We'll see what happens.
