THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
End of the day's dig finds are neat...also a good chance to see if any matches of broken pieces can be
found. This is Friday 7-27
Ace, Nacho's boy took matching parts very serious
To everyone's surprise and delight....He had the base that fit Jake's tip...broken in antiquity....Jake
went home with a great Marshall
The base can be seen in the top pic in the group of Ace's finds, left of the KK..
Jakes tip is in the group just above the KK
The good luck lightning struck again the next day...
Ace again....found a big tip that he remembered looked
similar to the big base that John found...they did match..broken in antiquity.
This impresed Bob enough to take his big Perd base around to the other tables....WHAM >>> BINGO....
Louis had the tip also an old break,,,so now we had 2
FIVE INCH long perds ...
Next dig check your finds for more lucky strikes
That's like that two piece Perd we found out at Palmer's. Sheer luck that both pieces ended up on our table, but in two different loads. Those are some reall killer points they found.
Nice report Hal. Jake is supposed to be sending me a pic of that Marshall all cleaned up. He said it is a dark rootbeer color with blue swirls in it. He said it is his best find of both days. He had a bunch of good finds too. If I get the pic I will try to post it with his ok.
Also, if anyone wants to sell their brokes from these 2 days let me know. I'm looking for more study pieces.
That Marshall is awesome, looking forward to the clean pic.
The Marcos is definately a match, the other two look like wishful thinking at best.
I believe Ace deservers a free dinner!!!
Love it when the pieces match up.
I hated to be a party pooper at the time of the initial posting, so no comment was made. Now that Roy has observed the fact that the emporer has no clothes, I will second the observation that on the two points in question, neither the lithics or structures match up.
Lightning strikes may no longer be a logical analog for matching broken points when there are many people on many screening tables...It's just a matter of
everyone displaying their finds at the end of the day..
Here are two more matches from Barksdale site 9/22/12, both broken in antiquity
The missing piece never showed up
Elaine found the base segment, the sliver of tip & edge was on SH's table.
