  2. Native American Game Ball/Marble Identification Needed

  3. Could these be spoke shaves?

    These were found in different locations, but both were in creeks in North Texas. They have a similar spokeshave-like feature, but I am unsure if this is a common natural formation, or if it is intentionally done. I have found spokeshaves before, but they are thinner than these two. Thanks in...

  11. Cape Cod arrowhead

    A little over a year ago I was skipping rocks on a beach in the Cape when I picked this up. It laid right at the shore line and looked to be the perfect skipping rock but after getting a closer look I went over to show my uncle to see if he knew what it could be. When I got back to the cottage I...

    Anxious to hear input on this one. Not sure if this is a pestle, but it sits at about 9 inches long and has a definite flat side to it. One end appears to maybe have been shaped down to a smaller point? The substance in the crack is the question I've been dying to have an answer to. This is part...
