I know very little about the subject, but this is my Treasure find and I need a little help identifying these beautiful artifacts! Does anyone know what these are
Im trying to figure out what your reply means since Im new to this but I want to thank you fir your reply and help!Bottom left has a little Thebes and a little dove tail to it, the one with the chunk in the side makes smith pop into my mind, the non points are all crinoids
I showed the big 1 to my son (11 y.o.) who is getting pretty good at identifying points and from 10 ft across the room he promptly said smith also. Also, agree Thebes on that other.Ok I’ll try to be more clear the one on the bottom left, in my opinion the right hand notch looks like a Thebes e notch, the left hand notch looks more like a dovetail (st. Charels according to the overstreet book) point. The other one could be a number of points but smith was my first instinct.

I can send another pic as these all have hiles in themCould have been, I’ve heard they used them, problem is how would you ever prove it, unless found in a necklace shape or obvious drilling, sometimes the hole is filled with stone… I’d add no mentions of them come to mind in any of the recent books on na’s I’ve read
Looks like Tennessee to me. Some of the points with short bases look like Benton’s.I am in Florida but this came from people who moved here from somewhere up north. I can try to find out where…
