    Point found ! Need ID help please.

    Hi all, I found this point in a park, while metal detecting. I decided to walk up a washout in hopes of finding one, as we have had 7 inches of rain in the last 10 days. Didn't take long, I found it in the first 5 minutes I was there. It was found in Northeastern Illinois ( Will County ). I sure would appreciate your opinions on what type it is, and how old it is. I do love to find them, but I am by no means an authority on types and ages. Thanks in advance, Ron

    That's a tough one. The point has seen some serious wear. Good find!

    Nice find , Iím not from your area so just a guess in the type but maybe a big sandy ? Whatever the type looks like it was reworked many times and used often

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    That's a woodland point. Likely middle woodland, Hopewell. Gary

    I would say yes, the base is ground. It seems to have a slightly flattened base as opposed to the sharp edges on the sides.

    I was think a Woodland type like Gary stated, but with the ground base it could be a Raddatz Point.

    Thanks to Gary and Reaper for the ID. Any idea on age or time period for the Woodland ?
