    flea market point

    Picked up this beautiful point at the flea market today.

    Is it an arrowhead or spear point?

    Possible area of origin?

    It has a shadow on it. Can we see a good clear pic of it, both sides?
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    IF the point originates from new jersey(guessing from your name and loc.) Could be PA Jasper. Lots of jasper originating from around Allentown, PA made it all along the east coast.

    How big is it?.Lots of fakes out there never know these days unless you pull it out of the ground yourself.

    Yes there is jasper in PA and it would be available... but the pics aren't very good, there's no scale to measure by, and what was the price anyway? and close-ups of edges? Big fat suspect until those questions (at least) can be answered, no?

    The notches are to finely done, they use small steel tools in India to get such small flaking done. Just from the pics I would say it's a import.

    That is definitely a fake from India.

    what are we judging this basis on?Nothing is screaming repro to me....I certainly hope we arent calling it fake because of the small notches and fine chipping,cause if so,somebody should have told the Indians out West about that!!
