Been in a bit of a slump with the detector lately, nothing but clad, caps and tabs. Decided to change things up a bit and go look for artifacts. Called a permission a few hours away to see if the ground was clear, and he said it was so off I went. Was having an okay day and finding a few decent points when I spotted this tip sticking up from the crust. Tried to give it a little wiggle but it was in there solid. I was hoping for a whole point maybe an inch and a half long and not broken. I just about soiled myself when I pulled up the biggest Elko knife I've ever found!

Love to hear what the date range is on that...congratulations! Beautiful piece!

Thanks, the type is generally considered to be in the 1,400-4,000 b.p. date range.

Man what a pristine point! What kind of ground was that found in? looks like a mud flat.

Yep, the edge of a small mud flat. I've found several nice points there over the years.

Stunning! What a good eye you have to spot that. Whether your searching for points, fossils, or metal artifacts in a plug - having a trained eye is priceless.

Alright....sometimes I'm late to the party....congrats on that amazing point....truly amazing.

It's never too late too give a nod to a recovery.
It's actually a very fitting time to see this one again all lit up for the Xmas season.
What a beautiful tree it is, still amazed at this beauty.
Thanks for bringing it back to life Bart.
