You need to post a picture.Is there a way to tell if it's fake ? My friend said there's a guy in Georgetown that will authenticate it for me but I don't know how much it cost? Any ideas or recommendations on where to take it around the austin texas area? Also does anyone know what kind of arrowhead it is? Thanks for any info u give me! Xoxo
Thank you! I have a magnification app on my phone if that would make a difference I could take a cpl of pics using it! What exactly are you looking for when u use a magnifying glass?Interesting.
I see your post and handle indicates you're in Austin Texas, is this were this was found in the auto?
It looks like NE US material to me.
there is a CSASI show in Temple Texas July 2 - 4 2023. There will be many qualified people there who could authenticate it.
If is authentic it could be worth some cash. If not, then its worth a lot less.
Its virtually impossible to authenticate a native American relic from a photo. Thats like talking to a doctor on the phone about a hurt arm and saying, "Look where I am pointing doc".
One can get a decent idea, but to be 100% sure, one needs to hold the item and inspect it using magnification tools.
It looks like a repo art piece to me. I may have missed something: what situation was it in when you found it? Buried, under water, swap meet, etc. If real, should have good value. It looks too good, hence my skepticism.I do not see any patina on it, if it was authentic it would be a knife, too big for arrow or spear.
Disregard the question. I missed the car auction statement my first time through.It looks like a repo art piece to me. I may have missed something: what situation was it in when you found it? Buried, under water, swap meet, etc. If real, should have good value. It looks too good, hence my skepticism.
Don't know if this question has been answered. I know it's a dated thread. But, that is a monster spear head. I don't think, in my unprofessional opinion, it's real. It's just so perfect and the size is a little too big for a real weapon, unless they are using it to bring down a Mastadon, lol. Also, it'd be awful hard to chuck any distance. But, again, just my opinion.
