    [Edit] I'm such a moron.. I was excited to find it, didn't even think about my son. He was so upset, he only found 4 small pieces of flint... Wish I could go back in time and throw it back down for him to stumble upon. Sigh.

    I guess I need to build my screen so I can get some good stuff to plant for him later.. lol.
    Like to hear some thoughts on that one. Careful not to drop it. That's a real possibility - trust me.
    Pretend like it's thousands of years old! Don't just hand it to someone..they will drop it.

    Per your son not finding the daily winner..from the sounds of it, there will be more to find.
    You probably will not have to "plant anything". Kids have better eyes and are closer to the ground.

    I understand what you felt.

    I hope your find gives him some hope and pumps his ambition up to search a little harder next hunt knowing what is possible. Maybe with some help, he will find the next big one.

    Might as well get used to it now, because someone else will always hook more fish or a bigger fish.

    Gently wash it, then take pictures of both sides.
    You will get more input as far as what you found.

    I spoke with the neighbor at the property line earlier. He said that my land was the outskirts of the village, that the village itself was on the next field over (on his property). He said he has around 250 points that he has collected off the property over the years. He was set out to buy the land I'm on to search but it wasn't offered to him (we bought directly from the owner due to family connections).

    I'm wondering if that is a preform or just crudely made because of the nature of the material?

    It's weird, the "unfinished" side works really well for the piece. If you closed your eyes and felt it in your hand, it doesnt seem unfinished (to my untrained eye, well - hand). When I was taking the pictures I realized how rough the one side looks but my thought was that they used that flat Edge to minimize strikes that could potentially, in my experience, break the piece in half LOL.

    They were very skilled at working stone and while it resembles the shape of a point, I don't think you have a finished point there. I'm a complete novice at these things, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Don't take my word on that! It's still cool and the story behind it may be more interesting...
    Usually don't hear crickets around here when something new is posted. Give it some time.

    Another good photo to include is one looking at the base, that shows the thickness or profile of the piece.

    I'm reading that the notches used to haft it to a shaft of some sort were usually added at the later stages of the process.

    I've got some ideas about a sifter.. trying to work out the logistics now. I plowed a much larger area, found a couple things while I was plowing.

    This seems too perfectly rounded to be natural.

    Is this modern or something old? I've only found this one piece. Reminds me of some fancy modern brick.

    pic1 - water worn rock
    pic2 - water worn rock (quartz)
    pic3 - piece of a dark colored brick
    pics 4 & 5 - some type of point

    That point looks like it's made of the same material as your previous, unfinished point.

    Anything man-made, and of great age, is, to me, precious...!
    I am what they call me, "Shovel Bum", so speak as an archaeologist.
    Those stones, look like weights for a net or bolo-throwing, entrapment tool/weapon...,
    I doubt they are gaming pieces.
    Fragments of this and that, have meaning, when referring to the complete artifact.
    And, just holding something so unique, is a privilege...!
    Carry on.
    Stick With It - It's not *IF* you'll find the good stuff , but WHEN!

    Yes, hereís a link to my DIY Screen Shaker Stand. Garscale helped with the design and it turned out great. It is very sturdy and gets the job done. I did make one modification after a handful of uses - I swapped out the 30 Lb springs with 18 Lb springs which gives it more shaking action. I documented the build with a PowerPoint file which includes pictures, dimensions, parts, etc. I also built a spreadsheet with parts descriptions and costs. All this in case I ever build another one down the road. Hey, Iím an engineer (retired), I canít help it! If you would like the files, send me a PM with your email address and Iíll send them to you.

    Am an engineer also. If I get the free time to actually do it, mine will be a lot.... different.

    Unfortunately I broke my plow a couple hours ago so I'll be welding that back together between this evening and tomorrow.

    Hee hee, you bet! Post pictures of it when you build it. Meanwhile, I hope you get the plow fixed and back to plowing. And keep posting your finds!
