THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
That's a centerpiece to any collection. Any idea's on what point type it'd be if not notched? That Perd ain't bad either.
Thanks Ken. Not sure on the point type yet but I'm glad you said it would make a good centrpiece. I was debating about even putting it in the frame. Thanks again!
Best I've done was a broken piece of what would have been a Perd found out at Vanderpool that had a notch in it and part of another, it was just the base and part of one side. The way the notching was, it appears to have been notched on both sides with multiple notches. It was broken and fire popped.
Yep, yours would be a prime centerpiece in any collection.
don't forget that awesome token-notched perdiz of yours
I was thinking yours might be a Gary eccentric, especially if it was found in the same layer as the Perd. We're out of the Gary range here, too far south, but looks like you're in it's geographical area.
Garys up here for sure Ken. Might be an Evans.
Think you might have hit the nail on the head. Hadn't thought about that one.
My Gracious,,That site is starting to look like a dream come true . ( as proven by the spoonful of dirt you moved to find that point )
A great insitu surface find is a nice bonus to a good story. Was that Richard ?
Now about that beautiful "eccentric"
In your part of the world (see stone artf guide ) EVANS would seem a very logical probability.....
BUT if you lived in the CenTx area it might be a " shaft scraper"
On that happy day in '09 when Badger found that gorgeous drilled flint gorget she neglected to give another find that day the publicity it deserved.
A NOLAN with side notching that we always assumed was
for fine finishing of dart shafts....Pls refer to front pg bottom. icon APRIL 2009 ...96% down.
Flint porn nice one man
gonna go with evans as well
Nice. I've got one like that. I'll post a pic of it later. Wonder what the purpose was on these? Always enjoy finding the unusual.
Maybe a beat up Duran?
Hey Hal, That guy in the video is a super nice fellow named Jack. He is good friends with Richard. Jack is more of a surface hunter than anything. As you can see, he is good at surface hunting.
my guess would be, tangipahoa. it looks like it may have a chisle tip look to it and the thickness.
i believe thats the coolest name for a point by far
what's a tankipahoa Pat? sound cool.
Pat, I was not expecting that great of a response. Thanks you very much. I really appreciate it. Your right, it does look like a crude version of that point. Very interesting piece. I haven't found anything liek it before. Everything is looking like it came out from the Lousiana / east Texas area. How it got all the way out sw of ft. worth I have no idea. Even the flint type and color doesn't look like anything we've found on that camp. Thanks again Pat.
the evans point has a very special place in my heart as it was the very first complete point I found in my life, I couldnt have been much older than Lunkers son. we were visiting my uncle in sommerville louisianna and my dad and brother were into metal detecting and we were out in the country where a house had burned down. I was kicking around being my usual self and looking down and remembering what an unusual leaf. when I picked it up my heart just started fluttering and the excitement was heard by all, simular to the way I am today when I find a dousey. any hoo here is my first complete point find ever.
wow thats a very unusual point. where did you find it?
I know its not as cute as yours ! ehe
I got it in austin. Not sure what they were tying to make out of it.. Thought that it was nolan looking .. except for the wiggles !!!!
M. it has the weak shoulders, but i cant tell beveling by pic. I am going to have to say that your point is closer to an exotic form of the M. point, you found it you get to name it who knows,seems like the more artifact hunters the more different points come to light. cant wait to see which proffessor gets the grant for the pre clovis artifacts. its like my brother said, there has been many a camp covered over when the going gets tough, but seems like the harder the digging gets the earlier / paleolithic artifacts are being found.
all three points really nice. and what a story, thanks.
