    Platform pipe

    This is one of the best finds that I have and it started off as just another day at the creek. Yesterday, I went with my wife and daughter along with my sister and her husband to cool off from this 100+ degree heat we are having here in Southwest Georgia. Shortly after we got in the water, which was less than knee deep, my sister pointed out two flint tools she spotted laying on the creek bed. These finds told me that there was likely points in the area so I started looking as well. I began running my fingers through the sand and finding pottery shards. After I worked that area with little luck, I decided to move down stream and try another spot. I had to pull some limbs out of the way to get a new area cleaned. Thats when this pipe came up. I did not find any points but thats o.k. with this taking thier place! This will likely be the center piece in my collection for quite some time. Any thoughts or comments are welcomed!!

    It looks amazing, what date would you place on it? Also what's it made of?

    With no doubt this is a amazing find. Do you know anything about the who would have made it? Or the age range? I would bet there are not many of these that are not in museums. I look forward to seeing this on the Banner.

    To answer the questions about the pipe the best I can tell you is that it is made from clay and I believe that it would date from the Mississippan Culture time period. It would have been made by the Creek Indians Thank you for the Banner Votes. This is the best artifact that I have ever found.

    Jim,
    That thing is almost as nice as the nickel you found Sunday morning. And, to everyone else out there, I got to hold this piece in my hands!! It is, without a doubt, the most amazing piece i have ever seen come from here. And, to think that it has been in the creek for over 600 years!!
