    Best Find Of My Life - Effigy Pipe!! New Pictures!!

    I went out this morning after I got off work and hit one of my Ft Ancient sites. I got there really early and it wasn't even light yet so I tried hunting with a flashlight until it got daylight. I found the Bone Pendant and the small Bone Bead with the flashlight and the rest after it became light enough to see. I wish I would have had my camera with me, but since it was a spur of the moment hunt and I left from work I didn't have it. The Pipe would have made a killer in situ picture. When I first saw it I thought it was a large Deer Antler Arrowpoint and never even thought about it being a Pipe. When I flipped it over and saw the hole for the stem I almost fainted. My heart started pounding and I started sweating and I let out a really loud scream. Definitely the best piece I have ever found in my 44 years of hunting for artifacts.

    The first picture is everything I found in the hour and a half I was there and the rest are the Pipe. It has a mouth engraved into the tip at the bottom but no other markings. I was hoping it would have eye engraved in it as well, but trust me I'm not complaining. This thing is in pristine condition. It is made of sandstone and has no damage whatsoever.

    Sorry these pictures aren't real clear. I took them in a hurry and will try to get better ones later. My battery died on the camera.

    Super find!! That is a sweetheart of a pipe. When you find something like that it is not worth hunting the rest of that day. You walk around looking at the piece you just found instead of looking at the ground. It takes all of your concentration away. It is a good problem to have though. Congrats on a BANNER find!!

    A real thriller starting in the dark of the night! Congratulations, The pipe has an interesting angle to the bowl, about a 45 degree angle which lays nicely in the hand. Banner find!

    Thats awesome! Congrats on a great find. You must have a great area to be able to find stuff in the dark with a flashlight. Most times I can't even find anything in broad daylight.

    Re: Best Find Of My Life - Effigy Pipe!!

    Ummm, Wow, that's about all I can say. I hunt the Ky. side of the big river, and hit a lot of places that are most likely Ft. Ancient as well, but never found anything approaching that. Def. a banner find, especially the fact that it has no damage. Go buy a lottery ticket, sounds like you're having a really lucky day. Congrats on a stellar find .........

    BTW, great going on the bone pieces as well, but I'm afraid the pipe pretty much stole their thunder ........
