THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Got out to dig on my birthday yesterday and I was justly rewarded. I couldn't have hoped for a better day in Burnet County.
At 11:30am I had this sticking out at me. (I hope it's all there....)
A few moments later (it's still there....)
And the result! YES!!!!!
The blade had a little cortex on the end, but she sure is a beauty!
And the other
I kept digging for a few more hours and nothing else came out, so I moved to another camp. Good thing I did, or I wouldn't had gotten this heartbreaker blade and two nice little birdies.
How much more could someone hope for on their birthday!
Thats a nice one bud......looks sharp!!!!
That is one awesome insitu and blade!! Yeah, great B.D. present, Congrats
Best present I could think of! Sweet finds and Happy Birthday!
Congratulations on the finds and belated Happy Birthday!!
Great Scott, what a find!!!! CONGRATS.
That Cortex end I have always taken as the Knappers way of showing off a bit. Maybe to show he was able to use
every millimeter of the flint flake without thinning.
A LOT of missile points show the cortex very close to the base, for the color aesthetic ?
Thank you very much to everyone for the comments and birthday wishes! I was very pleased to see the response.
Hal, I wish it was my 23rd, but I passed that one quite a while back. Does that mean I am getting wiser?
Michelle, I think you have some competition for the front page, what do you say?
I have several big blades with some cortex remaining on the bases. Those blades are all Angosturas. Good find; you were the first person to touch that blade in the past 8000 to 9000 years.
You had that 1 coming on ur b-day....... find a frame more and many more..
