  1. Hole in rock natural or ???

  2. I know what it is, but not what it was used for

    I picked up this old piece of pine sapwood at a sale this past weekend. It has obvious signs of being carved on to shape it in several spots. The guy I got it from says these were used by Native Americans to make a hole in the soil to plant corn and other seeds. I was just wondering if anyone...
  3. Is this a sharpening stone?

    Found this in the woods on our land. Does this look like a sharpening stone?
  4. Please help with identification

    Hey all, I’m new to this forum and was hoping that someone could help me identify this “artifact”. It was given to me recently and apparently it was found in a creek in Tennessee. I was told that it could potentially be a incomplete Mortar? The depression in the center definitely appears to be...
  5. Ancient Tools Found

    So Interesting story here. I was crawfishing for fun with some friends in Upstate New York. Woodstock Area. One of the techniques is to flip over rocks to find them. I flipped over a large stone slab on the side of the stream bed. Underneath was this weird orange and black thick clay like...
  6. To be or not to be an arrowhead?

    hello! so to start off I'm pretty sure this is not an arrowhead, but here's the backstory. I was metal detecting in my family's back fields which our family has owned for over 150 years. my great grandparents always found arrow heads in the fields after they would plow them up for crops, this...
  7. ARROWHEAD : Lenni-Lenape? - Yadkin Point? - ARROWHEAD

    Hello everyone and happy Sunday! :hello: I recently discovered something astonishing! In late March, I was measuring trees to identify their age. While I was measuring a 110 year old tulip popular tree, I looked down to see what I originally thought was a broken mason jar cap. I was so wrong! I...

  9. Do these arrowheads look like cheap knock-offs to anyone else?

    Came across this "Collection of Artifacts" on Ebay and I am new to collecting native american artifacts but they look suspicious to me. Is it just me or does anyone else see it too?
  10. Native American Artifacts

    I just started getting into collecting Native American Artifacts. Mostly points but I do collect other things. Thought I would share a photo of my newbie collection thus far. Made the Shadow boxes myself. Inlaid the shadow box lids with buffalo nickels and epoxied arrowheads (fake ones) to the...

  13. Native American artifacts or rock?

    I live in Connecticut and found these artifacts (or rocks). I live in an area frequented by the Tunxis tribe. I cleaned them off with water and a toothbrush. The last one is painted on one side and appears to have a person with a hunchback playing a flute to a bird? It’s only painted on one...
  14. What is this Native American artifact ?

    Found this at goodwill laying on the counter.
  15. Native artifact? Fossil?

    I was out searching a river today in Oklahoma looking for bottles, fossils, artifacts, etc and I came across this little thing. Does anyone know what it is? Feels like stone and has decent weight like stone. Not sure if it's native or if it's a sliver of a crinoid or something else. I've...
  16. Found a point

    I haven't done hardly any metal detecting in the last 4 months or more due to what has turned into a nasty divorce and expensive custody battle, a flood and a tornado hitting house. Anyway last night we had some heavy storms come thru and I found a large broken point that surfaced in my front...
  17. IDENTIFY Makers Mark - Belt Buckle

    I was given this belt buckle and I flipped it over to look at the makers mark. It is stamped with a capitol “I” or possibly a capitol “H” It looks like it was stamped with a single line tool three times. There is a slight overhang off one side of the middle line. Sorry for the small...
  18. Native American Bird Stone

    I consulted 2 archeologists about this statue. They confirmed it was a bird stone. How can I find out where to sell it?
  19. Complete Pottery Vessel

    Hello. This is my first post to this forum. Nice to meet you all. I found a completely intact Lenape pottery vessel. I scouted an undeveloped wooded lot nearby and determined where the brook flowed before it was redirected to accomodate the housing development. After finding a dipped path that...
  20. Found in NJ Today - Carnelian Thumb Scraper?

    Hello, While I was out digging in creek banks for carnelian in central New Jersey, I dug up this carnelian that appears to have been worked. It looks like a thumb scraper to me, but I am mainly a mineral collector, so I'm far from an expert on artifacts. I know for a fact that there were Native...
