All the stone pieces are Mogollon from Southern New Mexico. The kid is my grandson who turned 18 yesterday. He has tirned into one of the entitled/enlightened generation. The wood bird found illegally in a cave on public land disappeared from a museum in Washington State.

El Paso Polychrome terraced rim bowl, stone bear, schist pipe, and 2 fossils. A guy in El Paso found 3 bowls (all broken) 7 bears, the pipe, a shaft smoother and the fossils weathering out. The El Paso Museum of Archaeology has 1 bowl, a dead guy has 6 pipes and 1 bowl, and I got the rest. Took me a couple decades to find them after they sold.

Outstanding. Were those legally collected?

Any insights on this pattern? It looks awfully similar to some gun parts I’ve dug. Maybe it’s as simple as a generic design but I’d love to know more if there’s more to know.

The wood bird wasn't it was collected illegally from a cave in the Gila Wilderness near Cliff New Mexico. I had nothing to do with finding it, never seen it in person. I heard about it when i was a kid and just tracked down photos a couple years ago. The rest were surface finds The cache is published. All but the bird were surface finds by me or people I know.

Lol, you are trolling or trying real hard to get someone else in trouble.

Which is it?

Have to ask though. How do you find something in a cave that disappeared from a museum?
