    I am always happy to see an artifact up there, but I have to admit I was scratching my head why a little triangle made it up there. And boom there is the dovetail!

    A 6 inch flint ridge dovetail, about the most perfect Ohio relic to find.

    The triangle is a fine point, maybe like a nice early wheat penny. The other point is like a rare date $20 gold coin in good condition. Both cool finds, but one deserves the picture at the top more than the other.

    Congrats on the finds and making banner. Fantastic finds. I can only imagine the look on your face when you were pulling it out of the ground it it kept "growing" and growing.
    And glad you made it out of the mud pit with all your foot apparel.

    I will have to look up that type of chert, thanks. Thanks all. I dug a lot of days this year. A lot of days, colonial, Civil War, artifacts, fossils, now I want to go back but it's still mud city.

    Toddspoint, I do concur with you its probably that Normanskill chert, assuming that material can be transparent. Thanks.

    Crusader, you should find neolithic materials from time to time. Do you ever get any really old stone age stuff? Westfront, I was wearing Sketchers. No boots. I'm not that smart, but the boots would have pulled off instantly. Shoes were better.

    Truth, too many monsters in the woods to go there right now. Friend just got nailed by a probable brown recluse spider Saturday. Monsters I tell you.

    Congrats on making it up on the Banner Smokey!

    I got nailed in the calf by one of those spiders, while sitting in Swiss Chalet having a bite to eat. (Last time I ever went there)
    One little spider=one nasty trip to the ER, they thought it was the flesh eating disease.

    Toddspoint, I assume a "G10" is part of some official grading system. I have never purchased a graded point. I don't trust coa's on much of anything. I hardly ever purchase a point unless I'm doing a study myself then buy one (normally the $10 kind) for study purposes and its from a local antique store or such. Like most people I guess I like the local materials best. The materials most used here in order of abundance are sugar quartz, the kind that is grainy and you can't see through, white quartz, rhyolite, black "Delaware River" flint, argillite, Newark, Carsins Run and Vera Cruz jaspers, a greenstone which is local and slate (only 1 piece ever found last year) which is local.

    Congrats on the Banner Smokey! I have never even found a single arrowhead/point. Definitely on my bucket list.
