I"m still debating on what that ninth blade could be, I've narrowed it down between a Smith, because it looks like it but it's the only one we've found. And a possible Etly varient, because we've found a few Etlys..
let me know what you guys think!

Country Girl, COME ON DOWN!!!!!!!
As far as displaying them, I have about 8 cases for my actual points. I have a glass top table for some of my Adena cache blades. I don't display my axes or my grinding bowls because they take up way to much space!
Thanks for the post!

Oh i hunt a plowed field so my broken/whole ration is horrible.
But I keep every tip, base, piece i find and then go through and try to match the parts later. Sometimes if you find the 2 pieces they can be worth almost as much as the whole! Keep looking tho, if you're finding broken ones, the whole ones are there! You should post some of your finds!

I've posted a few. Should take a picture of the huge bucket of pieces and parts. I'll try to post a few more this week. I think I'll take some time this winter and see if I can match some up. Thanks!

Wow!!! I would love to see that type of color around WV and PA! I get stuck with black "flint" mostly. Occasanolly I get some "Dauphin county" White stone in PA. And the very hard to find Onodaga mottled chert from way up in NY. Thats in PA. In WV I have only found black "flint".

Of course I get some ryolite material and most is older stuff. I do have a nice OLD blade of it all from PA.

Alan!!!!!!! I almost forgot about you my friend. If we ever get a rock hunting trip together you're on the invite for sure! I hit the field pretty hard this fall but it's pretty much picked out until the spring cultivation. But we definitely have to get together sometime soon. I was in a wedding when that last artifact show was going on in St. Charles. Hit me up sometime.

Some of those colors are just beautiful if i do say so myself. It's amazing to think that 10,000 years ago people had such a sense of beauty and geometry.
