    Are you kidding me? The odds of matching that point are pretty remote. Get out and buy that 6/49 for tonight’s draw!

    Probably not a coincidence that it broke at the transition of those two rock layers. I would think that would create a weak point.

    With the first tool instead of an Adze, could it just be a straight up axe? Attach that thing upright to a stick and it looks like it would smash someone’s head pretty effectively.

    Anyways, great finds!

    What a great group of Indian Artifacts!!
    Have you posted these on the North American Indian Artifact forum? Last time I looked I didn't see them. You might get some answers there.

    Great find and saves. That was some story about finding the two pieces five years apart. This only confirms the saying that "Two halves make a whole". Congrat's on some very nice artifacts of Native American History.

    those points and tools are amazing. congrats on matching the two halves. A friend of mine managed to do that with a couple of pieces found a considerable distance apart on two different hunts

    If those finds as a group aren’t banner worthy nothing is . The ax if archaic is beautiful. Post them in the North American native artifact section. A lot of knowledgeable people on there.

    Congrats on some great finds.

    We done this a few times with broken metal objects but to get this eyes only adds more luck to it - cool.

    Love those pieces and the story. Congrats on some great finds.

    I can't imagine the odds of the same person finding those two pieces five years apart. What's even more amazing is having the memory to mentally piece them together to see if they fit together.

    Outstanding!!

    I still find it incredible that you were able to find both pieces of the point Anton.
    It's just amazing to try and imagine how many thousands of years ago these two pieces of stone were separated, only to be found and reunited years later!

    I think that's an under par round of finds for the 8000 year old course you're swinging over.

    Sitting back and waiting for part 2....

    Yes, wouldn't be as surprised with the metal object, happened to me multiple times. But the stone could be under just 1mm of dust and I wouldn't see it. Really had to be in the right place at the right time.
