    A Question about my Sweet Bear....

    ....I did post this with some other things, but the picture was small... think it was my first post on TN? About November 11 I think. Well...I love this little Bear, it was one of our first finds & my favorite. What do you guys think about it? Old? A friend said it's made of Jet, and have had offers to buy it but wouldn't sell it for anything.Click image for larger version.

    Kat that is the real deal, I can see it was craved by hand, that is super nice. Was it found on a site along where other artifacts have been found. I would bet the bank it is real and I can't understand why it was not voted BANNER, but it's got my vote. You need to show some more of your stuff.

    Hi guys....thanks for being so nice & liking it Found this on the property before we even put the house there! Hubby was the one who found it & I gave him all my arrowheads for it, not that I really needed to do that! lol I just really liked it soooo much....like I said...my favorite of the finds. Yes, it was found on the same property as all the others. Thank you monsterrack for your on it being hand carved, I'd still love it even if it weren't. Just the way his head is cocked to one side gives him so much personality...sorry, going on a bit much here! lol .....again, thanks all...

    no the age of the points meaning how old are they. That way you can date your bear.

    the name you have given it just fits perfectly
    the way its head is turned us what really gives it personality

    The reason I ask is I would like to try and date it for you. Could be ancient or could be just old. A NA could of carved it or a bored person waiting for crops to grow yrs ago. If you have found other NA artifacts made out of the same type of material then of course you could say a NA carved it. If no other period artifacts have been found in the same area it would be hard to get a date on your bear. Either way it is a nice looking find. Just trying to help
