    Copper Spear Point Found

    I have not posted much lately but this find seemed worthy. I was metal detecting and found this copper spear point. It looks to be an actual native american artifact. I found it near one of the finger lakes in upstate NY. Anyone have any info on these?

    Thanks Fingerlakes119

    No idea but it's super cool and bound to get some attention here!

    wow if thats what it is you got one hell of a piece of history, finger lakes native american copper culture is a great find. I would say even banner worthy for a big honker like that. I've been detecting near the finger lakes area many times and this is like a dream find I fantasize about.

    So your likely to find the most info associated with the great lakes copper culture which the finger lakes are kind of included in(ontario region). Looks to me for sure what it is, but I am no expert. This is one of those things that is a proper museum specimen in my opinion. Again super jealous.

    You need to lightly wash and clean with a tooth brush and get all the dirt of and post another picture. That could be one heck of a find that many seek and few ever find.
    Cleaning won't hurt this artifact that has been in the ground a long time. Wether it is trade or copper culture.

    WOW that is pretty incredible, I wondered if people found copper artifacts in these neck of the woods.

    Copper usually patinas green. Lead usually patinas white. Maybe the color of your picture is off but on my screen it is white and looks like lead. Either way, nice find.

    I brushed away some of the dirt with a toothbrush last night. and its definitely copper, I did see some green and brown color under the caked dirt I removed. Also the conductivity and ferrous numbers on my Etrac indicated copper not lead. I am not so eager to clean this artifact. As with most metal detecting finds the worse thing you can do is to clean them. I'm considering donating this to a local museum. They can have it professionally cleaned if they wish.
