THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
No guesses on the big one but it sure is an interesting report to hear that there was 4 feet of sediment between them AND the backround of the one pic showing the lay of the land...confirmation of the name Sandman
I was drifting through the Ovsts looking up that dove tail and went after your point....
Sure looks like the "Coldwater" with that slight concave base...Almost Paleo.
The Firstview also looks close and the same age, funny thing is that they look so similar yet donot refer to each other in the cross references.
The Coldwater is a pretty high dollar type, might be worth a COA. Now you know you have to go 2 inches deeper for some true Paleo
You maybe right Hal, it fits that type better than any I have come up with. Thanks, I agree on coa, it will help on how much time to spend on the very bottom!
I like Hellgap. A great point for sure. I just love anything Paleo. Like Hal !
Idahoe, Paleo really gets me going as well, but a little leary not getting my hopes up! The last point I am thinking a Merserve type? The beveling on all sides and base is odd?
I donno bout that last one, heavy resharpening practices muddle the ID viability. ( I dont care for Meserve )
Just put it in the "very nice frame "
There's going to be some busy ID dealers at the upcoming Flint show...I just found a LuLu out at Starr that I need a professional confirmation on before posting..( the LuLu point is very rare in these parts )
Hey Charlie, take a look at the last point and let me know your thoughts on it. Thanks
i would call both of the older pints angasturas
could sand be a lange?
I guess this one will have to be sent off, my first thought was angostura, but did not get any support on that id, not sure about lange. thanks
The point found well below your scallorn looks very similar to a point I dug years ago in McLennan county. I never was certain of the type, but knew it was old because it came from a separate campsite layer lying about 12 inches below where I had knocked out Wells and Hoxies. I always wondered about it being a Hell Gap, but I wondered if it was too far east.
dalton, would be my guess on that last beveled point. nice finds.
Matt, hey if you get a chance post a pic.
Pat, thanks for your input, I am not much on id-ing, Dalton sounds good.
Sandman, I'll give it a try. The point is in an old frame and neither it or the glass can be removed. Worried there may be too much glare.
