    Re: Pics of my Collection

    Dig,

    This collection is unbelievable. I keep pinching myself...it's not a dream. This is a collection started by your grandfather, father and added on by you. How many years total? Also, found in many different areas of the country.

    After seeing these, it makes me think about my collections (nowhere looking like yours) was started in 1965, by FIL and husband only when they found plowing the garden spot. Since, Jan '06 a new area was found on the property so I'm hauling them in.

    Thanks, for sharing these with us!!

    Re: Pics of my Collection

    Well, Dad and Grandpa have both moved on to the happy arrowhead hunting grounds, but they would have loved to hear all you guys compliments!



    Parts of this collection were found all the way back into the thirtys.  However, the majority was found by my dad who was like me (or is it the other way around?) and was ALWAYS outside doing something.  Hunting, fishing, digging relics, or hunting indian artifacts, he was always outside.  My Grandpa was more of a city slicker who would tag along with my dad on many of his indian artifact hunting trips.  Grandpa couldn't have cared less about metal detecting or any of that other stuff, but he liked to go walk the fields.  I would say that the split is 60% dad, 20% Grandpa and 20% mine. 

    Thing is, dad would go on weekend long hunts during the summer.  He would find someone who had found a _______ in their field and would ask permission and have them show him where they found it.  Then he would spend the weekend hunting it over and then wait for the next rain.  He would do this every summer and would always have seven or eight places to hunt.  This way he wouldn't wear out his welcome.  He might hit the same field about once every two months.  It was a good tactic. 

    Thanks again guys!

    Re: Pics of my Collection

    Here are some of the doodles from the cave.

    Anyone know FINN from 1873 or Dellmon Moris from 1900?

    The second one has my hiking buddy in it... so it was slightly edited.  It's looking over the cave from the entrance. The holes in the back only go back about ten more feet. We estimated the size to be about forty feet across, 60 feet deep and about 30 feet high at the center.

    Re: Pics of my Collection

    Dig, I really enjoy seeing the pictures, and sorry it took me so long to respond (i'm rather slow). Ok, first off...let's discuss the Clovis. I'm sorry, that being authentic is a very hard stretch for me. 1 - Obsidian isn't typically found where you state that is from. 2. Even where obsidian is plentiful, Clovis people didn't utilize it in Clovis manufacturing quite as frequently as they did other materials. Less homogenous materials was favored, and for good reason. 3. The form looks odd on it..I would dearly love to see a closer picture of it. I'm not questioning your Grandfather finding it. However, it's entirely possible that it was planted or used as seed. This is VERY common everywhere, and nobody is immune. I know of several obsidian pieces found around here locally at dams that a modern knapper planted. Also, some of the others pieces look very strange (like the cross shaped items). They have steep edge retouch which looks like it was done by a totally different knapper on the edges...retouch. But, it could just be the pictures too! It's hard to tell alot from photographs, and it's super easy to get fooled by them (wouldn't be the first time for me). Thanks for sharing, and I hope you aren't offended by my inquisitive nature.

    Re: Pics of my Collection

    Holy crap DigEmAll, yours is by far the best personal collection I've ever seen. In fact, it surpasses many museum collections I've seen. Man oh man, what great stuff. I am so wanting to find something completely intact, most of what I find is broken or water tumbled and therefore not in the best condition. Your collection is ... well ... words fail to describe the quality, quantity and variety. Congrats on your efforts (and your father's and grandfather's) and on your collection.

    The diamond-shaped points are quite similar to ones I have collected or been given which came from just east of my hometown (if I remember correctly).

    The piece with the rocks cemented into the larger rock could be conglomerate. Why anyone would make a tool from it is beyond my comprehension, it's not a particularly stable rock.

    Anyhow, thanks for posting the pix. Have you made any decisions about the future of your wonderful collection? IMHO, it would be a crying shame to ever piece it out. Sure, it could bring in a good return whole or pieced out, but the odds of any private party amassing such a collection again (unless through purchases) is probably slim. Something I hope you will consider carefully with many different scenarios in mind -- what its future will be. Do you have any children who are as interested in the collection as you? If not, please be sure to make plans for it and put those plans in your will. Geez, I'm still gasping after looking at those pix.
