THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Mostly brokes, one nice translucent ensor, another piece of a clay pipe. Hopefully a full perdiz will pop up soon these sure show some nice craftmanship.
Thinking this is a plainview base as it ground smooth.
WOW,,,Perdiz N Plainview..
And another pipe with points, that must be significant,maybe no trade item farther than the Caddo ( Mississippian ) people to the East.
That last apparent Perd is about as classic as they get, a true knife, one edge deliberatly resharpend down for use while still hafted on a shaft.
Turkey slicing knife
See pg 585, Dallas " knife form "
Is that Perd worn down? I thought it was broken on that one side. Good finds.
I don't think your paleo is a plainview, JMO, but it looks more like a St Marys Hall.
Thanks for the pictures.
Teh, looks like it has been resharpened and it does have the lower corner chipped off.
John, just quessing (hoping) on the plainview, it is just ground so smooth. Time should tell!!
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
That's pretty neat when you find a point that was broken and reworked into something else. I've only found a couple of points that were broken and reworked into hafted scrapers. Shows that some of those Indians were pretty frugal with their flint.
Hoping, age of finds to come will date back to a older time period!
