    Is your house bricked? Looks like a tuckpointing trowel for smoothing mortar.

    no, my home isn't brick. i've been researching since i posted the pics. i'm reluctant to believe it, but it is very similar to some of the copper culture indian spear points pictured here. copperculture

    Could be copper culture. The patina is ancient.

    update

    i sent photos to the owner of the copperculture website and just received an email from him stating that i had found a 6 inch ovate socketed point most often associated with the middle archaic period and then he made an offer to purchase it. amazing! i never expected to find anything like this
