Hello everyone!
I recently purchased 6 nice arrowheads to spark my son's interest (in something other than gaming). Purchased from a collector in Dinwiddie County, Va.who says they are paleos which would be great but I would love a 2nd opinion before I give them to my son. If anyone has time, I would be so appreciative. I do know the smallest is a bird point. DSC_0920 (1).JPG DSC_0923 (1).JPG DSC_0923 (1).JPG

I not sure if the photos attached properly! If not, Ill try in a 2nd post
Thank you all!

Put a coin or ruler in your pics for a size reference so we all can see how big/small your pieces actually are. Start a new thread next so newnan man dosen't feel Hi-Jacked as they say but we'll forgive you this time because you are new! So, now that the scolding is over (:laughing7:), I'd say they're authentic Archaic to Woodland pieces rather than Paleo. Drop the hammer on the gaming equipment and keep posting. Welcome Carrie.

Thanks TDog. I'm happy she posted & her points I think are the real deal.

I don't think they are Paleo, they do look authentic. Post them on a new thread & you'll get more looks. Welcome

CJMVA, hello and welcome to TreasureNet. I moved your posts to a new thread for you so dont worry about having to move them yourself. Points do look authentic, what we call field grade points..

As others have said, those are all good. All are quartzite except the white quartz triangle. Look to be Mid Archaic to Early Woodland in age. If you want to try to put names to them work your way through this list:

Welcome to the forum. Although I can't help with the ID, I hope that your son appreciates those points, and it does spark a new interest for him. Getting them outdoors away from the TV and games, is more of what the youngsters in this country need. Good luck and I applaud you !

Total agreement on an internet forum... rare event. I agree though, they are authentic points from 1000 to 4000 years old. Welcome

Welcome. First good idea with your son. The points are originals. The material is what we call sugar quartz up here, not too far from you. Very common in our part of the country. I can't see the little one so much so it's probably white quartz. The little white one is a woodland triangle, and the others are older, archaic stemmed points.
