    The Best Find Of My Life

    Ok I'm still pumped up so I hope I don't make mistakes on this post. I went back to my poverty point site because the farmer told me he had burned and disk the field and I could do what ever I wanted to in his fields. So I got my shovel, bucket and screen and hit it at dawn. I have been finding things on one little rise, so that's where I dug at. First thing I found I didn't know what it was till I washed it off. I think it is a pottery game piece that did not get finished.Click image for larger version.

ID:	864604It's just a crinoid stem fossil, but I have never seen one of this color in this area, most are just brown chert. This gave me a little more juice to hunt some more, I was ready to stop and I thought just one more scoop, and then this showed up on the screen.Click image for larger version.

ID:	864622I thought I was going to faint and wet my pants at the same time. This has been my Holy grail, my number 1 on my bucket list, I could not get my breath. I was in shock for 15 min. I still can't get over it and may not for a long time. Here are some pics of it cleaned.Click image for larger version.

    The gods have smiled upon you, what a great find. Most of us do not understand the significance of the Poverty Point culture, it is a unique unto itself with those great figurines, when you find an owl please send it to me............lol

    Awesome find monsterrack. Those Poverty Point Effigy Beads are some of the coolest Beads you can find. Do you think it's an Owl or another type of Bird. I also think the Crinoid may have been a Bead too. It sure is awfully highly polished.

    That is an outstanding find! WOW! One of the best I've seen posted here in a while from the deep south. I'm sure it will be a centerpiece in your collection. I also think it should be considered for a banner find too. JMO - Good luck.

    I agree with you, I think it's a bead also, and yes that is what is called a pot belly owl.
