    An approximately 3000 to 6000 year old copper adz

    Hello Folks
    I was out detecting one of my favorite places and recovered this. The area I recovered it from is near a stream and is kind of a hollow in the woods. It was about eight inches down in the soil.
    From my quick research and what I have been told so far it is a 3000 plus year old copper adz, or copper celt .
    I am going to try to get an expert opinion from someone on staff at one of the local big colleges nearby, in the meantime feel free to burst my bubble if you don't think it is what I have been lead to believe.

    Hi, Celts in America? I do not think there have not been widespread.

    He (the original poster) means the object he found is a copper celt or ax type object made by early Native American people.

    Wow! That's the coolest American tool I've seen so far, or I guess it possibly could've been traded. That has to top your best find list! Though not gold or coin for eye appeal this deserves banner!
