THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Some that I found back in the mid-'80s surface hunting on the San Miguel creek.
You've got a great collection, e****ally whjen you found them youself. Wish I had that opportunity years ago when I was younger, as I've bought 99% of my collection.
Who Knew ....what some people keep under their Bed ??
What a great selection including absolute classic designs of Carrizo, Castroville and Montell
You had us all fooled with all that poor suffering business of the "king of stemless points "
A little sneaky Hal. Didn't post all of them a couple of years ago. Gotta remember, this is over 30 years of surfacing so you do amass a few points. Still the unstemmed ones outnumber these by a long shot.
I think "WOW" pretty much sums that up
good show. what is the id of the point at 11 o clock of the montell frio centerpiece group?
I love that root beer flint! Thanks for sharing!
T.E. man what a frame, but what I'm really missing are the jokes... its been since mid march!
I got them, will post some pretty quick.
Sandman, you mean the long skinny one? It has Paleo flaking and a ground base but haven't a clue. It's another one I never could find in any book.
well it a type that i haven't seen,but i am still in the leearning stage, hey i'd like to hear some jokes too!!
Ken those are some killer points with awesome colors. Man I wish I was hunting back in the 80's. I was little then.
I found my first point back in the late '50's at Trinity Lake. Dang, guess what? It was an unstemmed blade. That should have given me a clue on what my future held in store.
You're dating yourself there Ken, careful!
I'm only 20, just took me nearly 60 years to get there. Been told more then once by Flicker that I still haven't grown up.
Thanks Chris. Back in the 50's and 60's there wasn't as much interest in artifacts or literature about them as there is today. More of a novelty back then, Indians were viewed as seen on TV.
My dad told me that when he was a kid back in the late teens that they'd tie the points to sticks and throw them. Later he said that there's no telling how many Plainviews met their doom while he and his brothers were playing cowboys and Indians.
San Miguel in eastern Frio county. It's mentioned several times in Hester's books as an Indian thorough fare. I've found several large camps in this ranch, another case of Paleo to Pre-historic points all found together on the surface. It does end up on the northwestern side of Choke Canyon.
