  3. Re-salvaged Lab Specimens

    I recently re-salvaged these two lab specimens from my "rock pile" by my workshop where my less than perfect pieces go (some make it back for further evaluation!). I've not made the final determination on these. Opinions requested and welcomed. Got a few more pics to follow...
  4. Finds from Elmore, Coosa & Tallapoosa Co. Alabama

    Found several years ago. 1 is a chert unifacial scraper w/cortex present. It is broken on one end I believe. 2 is also chert but not sure whether it's a broken scraper or what. 3 is a quartz backed knife (?) or scraper. I once thought it was a point that was broken in half. 4 is a complete...
  5. Ohio/Penn Gifts

    From a too kind member here... I've got to hide that Riker in a custom made frame one day. But, it's a start. Coshocton Ohio Lance and scraper plus two Flintridge scrapers w/documentation in the back of the frame. Thanks Mr. Banonymous!
  6. Spokeshaves

    Although no spokes were around to shave when these were crafted, I think the abos used these to prepare spoke-like objects; e.g. shafts for projectiles, knives, bows, et al. Pic2, leftmost piece, looks to be heat treated and in the same pic, the rightmost piece appears to be a multi-tool. It was...
  7. Gifted Point

    My cousin Jerry tilled this point up this past fall. The tiller tines chipped it but it's still largely intact. I can't type it but it looks like a true arrow point made of chert. Macon County Alabama find.
  8. Updated / Cleaned-up and Rearranged "Shop Shelf"

    Since these are not under glass (and not worthy of it either), they get pretty dusty and buggy over the years. I cleaned them up and rearranged them recently. No G-10's but a lot of surface finds from Elmore, Coosa and Tallapoosa counties in Alabama represented here. I have enough fragments to...
  9. Bulky Point

    antmike915's posts of big points got me thinking about this one. This quartz point was found by my cousin while digging a trench in his back yard for a water line in Macon county Alabama. He found the bottom as he was digging and most of the top another day. He obviously broke it while digging...
  10. Artifact Table In The Man Cave

    I've posted this up here before and it's slow here so I figured I'd take some new shots of my table containing some of my mediocre finds. I took off the glass so it wouldn't glare in the pics and straightened them up a little. Maybe some newbies haven't seen it yet. Do you see something other...
  11. Hereford Newborn Saved By Wife

    Cows rotated in pastures today and 1st time mother got separated from her calf. Donna noticed the calf never moved from one location all day long and called the owner. The calf was beginning to weaken from lack of nourishment. He (Joe) came and picked up the calf, put it in the cab of his truck...
  12. Brass Castings

    Three brass castings by Pointless--good job friend and thanks to Mike for sending me these castings. Great study pieces. I'll use the finders old Arrowheadology Userids as well. It's about to rain here so blame overcast skies for the lighting. The 1st is a Nevada Clovis found by Floyd aka...
  13. Tallapoosa County, Lake Martin Alabama

    My bud Gary and I found a few pieces last Thursday while taking a break from fishing. 1st item is a well used knife. 2nd (possible exhausted core) & 4th (scraper) both unifacial. 3rd a crude knife. 5th a true arrowhead with impact fracture at the tip.

  15. Bowl Fragments

    In January of 2013, I was fortunate enough to be able to hunt this site that a friend took me to. She and I recovered many artifacts there. Beside the fact that we were walking on tiny pottery fragments in many places there, I discovered a pile of large pottery fragments in an area approx 10' X...
  16. Resonator Mandolin

    Ever seen one of these? A guy I know in Eclectic had it and it was badly broken at the neck joint. The neck was practically detached from the body. He called me Tuesday evening and asked if I could fix it so I agreed to give it a try. I picked it up yesterday and took it home, glued & clamped...

  19. North Dakota KRF

    I got a package in the mail today containing 33 pieces of Knife River Flint from my new friend TundraPlugger. What a nice guy to do this just because he knew I liked the material. Thank you very much Mike. You da man! The Upside-down phenomenon is bugging me with these pics.
