    I missed the previous post too. That is really a nice find. I know little about dating/authenticating other than recognizing point types but if it was found with points and other artifacts and if no modern dwellings were nearby there is a good chance it is the real deal. It is very unique for sure. Thanks for showing it to us.

    ....wow...thanks some more you guys! The only thing I can say is that everything I've posted except "the round thing with a hole through it", is from the same area (about about 5 acres) ...all the arrowheads, pottery shards, the two small faces and stone things. There was no one living here before us, but others living in the area...and from what we've found, we know for sure the NA were here, just not exactly when. I think the reason that this little bear wasn't really noticed in my first post is that it was not close up and sitting on the turtle made of stone, which maybe I should re post up close to!?

    That really is a cool piece! As others have requested, I'd like to see some of the stone arrowheads and tools that have come from the property as well. What is it made of?

    Surely a Banner piece but would really like to know more about it. Could it be a contact piece or something from a later time that was dropped there? Are there any signs of settlement on the property aside from Native American?

    Great find no matter what!

    kat to find out if the faces are obsidian or jet place them in a cold place for just a minute jet does not conduct heat or cold like obsidian will. I believe jet is a type of coal.

    regular coal is lite and canel coal is heavier I do believe in weight but easy to carve. Allot of NA used it. Kinda like soap stone

    The faces are Obsidian monsterrack, it's the bear that's in question. A friend had said it's Jet, which is some kind of wood that's undergone something or other? lol Is canal coal the same thing I wonder? Haven't found anything else yet that appears to be made of the same thing. Maybe was traded?

    Jet is a type of coal,if you rub it on a white rock you should get a brown streak.
