    MY OLDEST TO DATE: TWO THOUSAND YEAR OLD COPPER TOOLS

    I had these posted in the "what is it" forum. These were found a few months back and I nearly pitched them. Turns out they are 2000 year old copper tools. I was told by a local collector that these are classic Hopewell tools. The Hopewell Indians date about 200 BC to 400 AD here in Illinois. They were found near a river in a wooded area in northern Illinois. I was told that they are a very rare find here . They will become part of someone's collection, I have put them on Ebay. Enjoy the picture

    Doug,

    You made the right move not trashing them. You will get at least a $1000 for them. I would not be surprised if $2000. Outstanding finds! Get back to that site now and you might not have to work another day this year.

    Great finds for sure. Far too many of us throw our finds away without checking. I've done it myself.

    Congrats.

    WHOA now there is a sweet historical find. I certainly wouldn't have known what it was if it bit me.

    Congratulations,

    Superb pieces! Find copper culture artifacts here in Wisconsin right away but that axe is way better than the average find, I wouldn't have been able to part with them! I have been watching copper culture artifacts on ebay for years now and I hate to say this but I don't think you will get a thousand for them...

    Here the auction number....260028942089...not use how to post a link. I have had a few offers on it, but I think I'll let ebay run its course. There has been quite a bit of interest in it
