    Pictures are too blurry to really identify, from what you can see they appear to be field grade points. A few do not appear to be points, but could be due to the blurry pictures shown. Broken points, points with pieces missing on the edges are really not worth much, except to the finder. (Unless they are a extremely rare type and possibly restorable). I personally don't buy a repaired point.

    Just my personal opinion only, no offense meant, not worth more then couple dollars each for the whole points. Lower left corner appears to be the best by the picture shown.

    Generally the thicker the point is, the less it is worth, the thiner the point, and finer the flaking is, the more valuable the point is. Points with nodules on one or both sides are usually worth a lot less, as the quality of the workmenship is less.

    Good luck hunting.................

    Nice racks though. Some sites will give up a lot of quartz. A lot of people really like it and their are diffrent grades and types. Most I see are knifes and I enjoy finding them still

    I have to agree with Treasure_Hunter. It looks like they are mostly field grade points and not worth more than a few dollars each.

    Most of these look like smallish, conracting stem points which fall nicely into the Rossville type. Rossville points are Middle Woodland in age - 2000 years old, give or take a few hundred years.

    Since so many of these points are of similar type, one wonders if they came from a site which primarily was occuppied in Middle Woodland times, as opposed to a site which had a number of occupancies over various periods.

    I agree that the value would be a few dollars each for the better ones, less for the broken or eroded pieces. A few of these look like they are made of weathered argillite - unfortunatley argillite literally disolves in the ground over time, becoming nothing more than an eroded core of the original piece.

    A very nice group, nonetheless.
