    What that means is that we don't need any hardstone pieces, gorgets, etc. We need only projectile points.

Be sure to check the criteria though, we really do need them on white or black backgrounds (makes it easier to edit) and we need size as well. A ruler would really help, but if you don't have one handy you can always fill in the dimensions field in the form. Be sure to take the pics in plenty of light and try not to be TOO close to the artifact, or it may affect the depth of field (that makes one part of the image more sharp than another). All submissions, from anywhere in the U.S. is greatly appreciated! State of exhaustion and minor damage doesn't matter either. If they have a tip or barb nick, go ahead and submit it because we want to show different grades.
    Sounds good, and yes I know where the ones Id like to submit came from, all from the Tucson area. It will take a little while for me to get some good clear photos, so until then.

    I am really glad you are involved in this. My friend bought Bobs (Overstreet) house here in Tennessee and he left a bunch of mortars and pestles there I may pick up and my Uncle worked with him at Bowwater Corp. I have never got past his secretary,lol.
    If you need any types from the south east let me know.
    Please read our rules and enjoy the site. TreasureNet.com Rules

    All finds posted by me are from private property with landowner permission.

    We need types from everywhere! What's kinda funny about all of this is that nobody seems to be submitting some of the more common types. They appear to assume that everyone else is submitting their dovetail, adena, and kirks and they won't have a chance of getting theirs in. Nothing can be further from the truth. Please, submit any classic examples of any type.

    Jusr curious how many people are sending in some pictures. I have sent in a bunch and hope they pick at least a few to publish in the book. I have some pieces published in one of Jim Bennets books. It's pretty cool to open a book and see your own pieces.

    I have been putting in some time submitting a bunch too Steve.

    Artifact rich South Dakota has been way under-represented in the prior publications, and we happen to be split into two regions. East half of state being in the North Central section, then, from the Missouri river region west, in the high plains region.

    There's quite a few, which is a good thing. I've went through quite a few and I think that there are 600-700+ submissions still waiting to be sorted through right now. The larger the pool of artifacts that we have to draw from, the better the book will be. When I do figure out which types that we will definitely need more images of I will let everyone now.

    I have a few South Dakota pieces. I'll get some pictures and submit them.

    Cool.

    Having a pretty good idea where they came from, I'd say you have some nice high plains pieces.

    I was wondering how you know what size your pictures are when you send them? I have plenty of fields grade finds from N GA as most know thats usually the types I find.

    I'm going to try and get some in as well because in previous editiond I feel Arizona is underrepresented. Unfortunately I don't have ready access to some of the better pieces.

    You can check the image size / resolution in your graphics program, like photoshop. However, as long as the images are crisp and clear I wouldn't worry too awful much about resolution. There have been several people who have submitted images taken with their cell phones and they look fine to me. Lighting matters a lot. If you can, I would recommend taking pics outdoors - you just can't beat natural light.

    Here's something that I have been using as a backdrop for flint pics for a while now. Jewelry board/trays. They're very inexpensive and work great! They are hard and covered in velvet, so you don't have to worry about much about light reflecting. You can get them in white, black, or gray...I have several of each. https://www.amazon.com/Wire-Sculptur...vet+tray+board
