    I only ship via USPS Priority 1-3 day shipping - it's been 100% reliable and on time for domestic. Shipping to Canada, otoh had me on the verge of going postal.
  2. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED What was the purpose of this and why would it be in a field?

    Mysterious item is part of a lot of rocks and fossils I purchased at an estate sale of a farm in Southern MN. Everything in the box was more or less encrusted in dirt, bore varying degrees of knicks and scratches (probably from being run over multiple times by farm equipment) and splattered...

    Haha you know it! I've got so many rocks that stood out from the rest - they're lined up on ledges, taking up counter space, occupying tables and my nightstand... On the plus side, I've discovered that I really like rocks. They're mysterious, like paleo-indian artifacts. I look at them...

    Aw, it's good to know I'm developing an eye for NA artifacts!👀👀👀

    Your description of the Indian drumming & singing changing the weather reminds me of accounts by European settlers in the mid-late 1800's reporting seeing something similar among the Ojibwa camps in Minnesota. They wrote and told others who complied their accounts that there would be occasions...

    Ha! I couldn't take the excitement of always finding "axes" so I'd best stick to fields lol.

    Oooooh that is an interesting question. I've never had a paranormal experience while artifact hunting - but then I've only been at it for about 3 months so far! Knock on wood the "only" weird/scary thing I encounter is a ghost! I'm looking forward to reading other people's experiences tho.

    Thank you for checking my find out and taking time to give me your honest assessment. It's crazy how potent mother nature combined with a little bit of knowledge can be in my hopeful mind.

    Thank you for explaining the reasons why this isn't an axe. Your comment makes me realize that it's important for me to see irl examples of pecking/flaking/grinding. I'd rather my bubble is burst than to go on being happy and wrong lol.

    Well, now that my disappointment is under control, I wanted to write back to let you know that I sincerely appreciate the time and thought you put into answering my question about my rock. I imagine knowledgeable people like you are swamped with noobs like me getting mad. The truth is a bummer...

    Found last month in a northern MN field last month, right before they temp went below zero. I believe the area has been home to Chippewa, Ojibwa, Dakota. I've looked at Overstreet and all over the net but can't find examples of an axe like this, so any info will be greatly appreciated. The...
