Hello guys, love your forum, how do i post a picture for some help identifying a point i found the other day

Aboud 03-10-2014 08:58 AM

From a smart phone just go to advanced reply and at bottom of page click manage attachments and upload your attachment. Sometimes you have to edit your photo and crop it smaller for it to upload. TBH is the only site I can download photos so of I can do it anyone can.

GRNZEPHYR 03-10-2014 09:12 AM

Thanks Aboud, Im doing this from a desktop computer, I put it as my profile picture, but so far it hasnt shown up, im going to try and add it in an album

Roy D Mercer 03-10-2014 09:51 AM

Go to advanced setting then click on the paper clip icon,,from there upload the photo to the forum.

I looked at it in your album. It is a typical preform. Many cultures traveled to the Texas hill country to quarry Edwards chert like that. In most cases , it was flaked into a generic blade to lighten the weight in travel. Then it was traded or used . Some became opportunistic knives and were used then resharpened.

Basically, it is an artifact to be finished later.

Roy D Mercer 03-15-2014 10:06 AM

May be called a Marshall also!

GarGuy 03-15-2014 11:01 AM

My daughter was playing on the edge of the creek that runs through our property this afternoon and made a cool find. She was so excited! Any idea what type it is? Cherokee County.

EastTx 03-21-2014 10:52 AM

Gringo23 03-21-2014 11:51 AM

Looks Marshall to me also.

salth2o 04-05-2014 03:49 PM

My dad found this one today on the surface at his pasture.

Anybody have an idea about this one?

GarGuy 04-05-2014 04:01 PM

Need better pics but it is something old and resharpened many times. You can see a ground base on it so its pretty old.

Recent Cotulla surfice finds.

Roy D Mercer 04-08-2014 02:36 PM

I think I would call the one on the right a gower. Fairly common point down south

i'll take your word on it!!! :) They do seem to be common as i find one just like it about every trip down there. I find all of them in about the same general area. An area that I've walked through many times. They seem to appear out of nowhere. ;)

its like they just grow back when you find a good spot.

In the last year I have looked for points more than I care to admit with little success but last weekend I was Turkey hunting in Hamilton County and struck gold...would appreciate any insight http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/01/eze7edum.jpg

GarGuy 05-01-2014 01:52 PM

I can help a little although they are pretty broken up. You must have been in an area where the soil was seriously eroded as that is a mix of about 8,000 years. The white point up top is likely an early Archaic type while the top left side notched point appears to be a the arrow point less than 1000 years old. The rest are a mix of Archaic/woodland points.

Cool stuff.

SouthernCamo 05-01-2014 03:47 PM

Thank you for that, definitely all surface funds, oddly the white one had no cover and it was fine. Can't wait to go back.

T/Chmr 05-09-2014 10:08 AM

Can anyone enlighten me on these.....Found in western Lampasas co. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/09/e9ynybuz.jpg

Can I come dig with you please sir!!;)b:D

The ones on the right of the pen are a corner tang and looks to be a Covington knife. Really pretty pieces. I'm not too familiar with the ones on the left but killer for sure! Thanks for the look.

I'm still sniffing the ammonia capsules myself!

snappertapper 05-09-2014 10:27 AM

I think I would trade my entire collection for those 4.

T/Chmr 05-09-2014 11:22 AM

Thanks Johnny. The first one on the left of the pen really has my curiosity up.

I think that one is a Bell.
Early Archaic.

You have some great finds.
