    Halloween hunt.

    Was messing around this weekend and wore my mountain man outfit to watch football at my parents. After I decided to hit my trade site in costume before the sun went down

    Came up with my 5th trade metal point! It oddly came full circle winding up back in the pouch of a mountain man where it probably came from when it was traded to the Indians haha

    Unfortunately I dinged it pretty hard with my shovel I assume, bent up the top and knocked the rust off. I try to dig about 6in back from where I think it is to avoid that so Iím not sure what happened

    I posed a question up in the na forum but maybe itís better here, 4 points are flat like they were cut from a sheet, one has thickness like a knife or a thin stone point.. second from the bottom in my pic... could this one be hand forged vs sheet cut? Or just different style point?

    I'd say it was probably made by hand ,they just used a thicker piece of metal from some other broken tool such as maybe a broke knife ,they recycled all kinds of broken material & re shaped it & re used it for something else ,you see that a lot on arrowheads ,regrinding & reshaping....and definitely in the trade material....cut sheet brass is usually always thin, unless it's the thicker parts (bottoms) of brass kettles
