I'm thinking the one one the right in the third pic is a Kinney, but I'm sure no expert. Trying to figure this stuff out. I have quite a few others I'd like to find out about.

Patton 02-06-2014 07:32 PM

Wow that is a very cool piece.

Spear point? Can't wait to hear the experts input

Roy D Mercer 02-06-2014 07:32 PM

Was that triangle blade at the same depth? And or did u find any other artifacts at that depth?

T/Chmr 02-06-2014 07:34 PM

Triangle came from another part of the pasture....maybe 300 yds away, in 3-5 ft of sand

T/Chmr 02-06-2014 07:35 PM

Here are some othershttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/07/2aju7ahy.jpg

T/Chmr 02-06-2014 07:38 PM

That gray knife looking thing was found within about 10' and at about the same depth as the first one I posted

T/Chmr, you have some very nice pointy rocks. What part of the country did they come from? We had a lease west of Lampasas that had a bunch of points. There were at least two camps there. I found many arrowheads, scrapers etc at that lease.

Roy D Mercer 02-06-2014 08:03 PM

I'm not an expert but to me it doesn't have a classic look to put a definite name on but it looks thin and 10' deep I would think paleo. Now I see you have one heck of a base tang blade that looks awesome. Maybe GarGuy will chime in he is the expert.

T/Chmr 02-06-2014 08:11 PM

Is the "base tang" the gray knife? Not yanking your chain.....I really have no idea what I have.

These where all found in Lampasas county, west of town about 22 miles, near Bend

Roy D Mercer 02-06-2014 08:52 PM

Dang nice blade looks like another base tang far right. You got some nice stuff.

Reelthreat 02-06-2014 08:58 PM

Kinney or friday on the triangular blade. Sand can move pretty fast so 10' is not uncommon to find archaic stuff. Did you find anything else in your frame with the large triangular blade? All the stuff in your frame appears to be typical Texas archaic stuff.

T/Chmr 02-06-2014 08:58 PM

Thanks, I found most of them 7-8 years ago. Honestly don't know much about them....as quarterback said....."pointy rocks"

The large gray blade was about the same depth and within probably 10' laterally of the large triangular one

T/Chmr 02-06-2014 09:02 PM

Thanks for any and all input

Copper87 02-06-2014 09:20 PM

I would say a big preform knife or a trade piece.

I would say you have a nice honey hole for points. Very nice!

GarGuy 02-06-2014 09:42 PM

I think Copper hit it. I believe its a tang preform. Could be a made into a corner tang or base tang. It does appear to have edge dulling(grinding) around the base though. Very nice collection. Couple of 500 buck pieces in there.

Johnny 02-06-2014 09:47 PM

I'm heading out to Leakey to dig in a camp along the Frio for a week during Spring Break in March. After looking over this thread, the time can't get here soon enough!!

Our old lease was out that way. We were 6-7 miles east of the Colorado river but that must've been a good area for indians to camp. There is no telling what all is in the ground around close to the river itself. What I wouldn't give to go artifact hunting on a ranch that had some Colorado river frontage.

Attachment 598657any ideas on these? The bigger triangle has a crazy bevel.

TTT for an ID...

GarGuy 02-18-2014 08:17 PM

Stickman, those are a little out of my area but they appear to all be Mississippian. True archery points from 300 to 1500 years old.

stickman 02-18-2014 08:36 PM

Thank you Steve.

I havent seen the full collection. These are the ones my mother inlaw took out for us to have because the looked nice. I still need to get you out to look at it all. There just hasnt been a good time yet.

He may have been very busy. There are several rubber maid tubs full. I just havent seen whats inside.

My neighbor is a flint knapper (sp?). He has boxes full of...well, everything. Knives, all kinds of points. He'll even but interesting colored glass plates at garage sales to make points out of.

I found some high ground where two creeks converge. There is petrified wood all over the hill side mixed with all the other rocks. Stumbled across this piece, it felt special. Anybody have a clue? It was a surface find, definitely looks like it has been made.

The small bird point I would call Edwards and the one on top I think I would call a scallorn.

Hard to say it could have been a tool that was sharpened off. The areas you describe sounds like a good area I would keep looking.

The red triangular and the middle point are a couple of my most recent finds.
