Need some id help. Found this one the other day in McMullen county. Thinking maybe an earlier triangular but I honestly have no idea. What y'all think?

Were they finds or purchases. If finds, This is a World class assemblage with several points worth from 30,000 to 100,000 bucks.

It looks like labels on the glass so I hope that's record of where they were found.

My dad bought these about 30yrs ago from a old man who dug a ranch in
Ozona TX..He was digging for some university and from the story i got these are some of the points he kinda kept to himself and yes they are dated with info..he got a bunch of archaic type points to just wanted to share the paleos...i can get some close ups of the points and you can tell me what you think real or fake..

I will see if I can get some pics out of the case and of the other side. My stepfather's dad spent years collecting arrowheads and has a pretty good collection. I was looking through the cases and that immediately caught my eye.

Copper87 07-20-2013 12:41 PM

Ok my story is off they were found in different areas about to post some close ups

Copper

Beautiful collection. From the pics so far they look fake because they are all so perfect. Not saying they are but they just appear that way a first sight. Can't wait to see more pics. Those are some beautiful arrowheads.

Copper87 07-20-2013 12:56 PM

they might be.. loading pics now stay tuned..alot of them still have dirt in the chiped areas not saying much

Copper87 07-20-2013 01:17 PM

Here we go close ups and some other pics tell me what ya think..some of the labels might be off they have shifted around a bit i think

Awesome points Cooper... Without actually holding them and looking at them under magnification it would be hard to tell if they are authentic. I do see what looks like a lot of fresh hinges and some of the flutes/flaking look weird but could be the pictures. Some look 100% dead on, also!!! I would have them papered. If all real your Father is looking at 100s of thousands.

Copper87 07-20-2013 06:49 PM

Thanks for your input realthreat..your right you would have to hold them and see them in person

Copper87 07-21-2013 05:38 PM

Patton 07-21-2013 11:39 PM

Wow I dont know much except from following most of Gar Guys thread and looking at other threads that come up, but if those are real..... That is almost too incredible to understand

AZ&F'sDaddy 07-21-2013 11:47 PM

Found near the North Llano River. Hmmm...can't upload pictures.

Statton48 07-22-2013 07:24 PM

Wondering what these were. Most have the same basic shape. Attachment 521237
Also found this in Webb county and thought it was pretty cool.

Tortuga is the triangle, abasolo are the teardrop and lerma are the ones that are pointed on both ends where you really can't tell the tip from the base. The diamond shaped one might be a desmuke or a modified abasolo.

Found these in West Texas...Iraan to be exact back in 08.
Do not have any ID info on these.

These meteorites in Iraan also.

Gar Guy told me this was Edwards Flint. Found on my property in Harper.

The coolest thing to me about finding items like arrowheads ect is that there were like minded hunters such as ourselves...who put them there way back when.

Copper87 07-24-2013 11:18 PM

on the small ones little rough to tell what they might be

Copper, if those are indeed authentic, that just might be the most impressive and valuable collection of paleo points found anywhere outside of a museum!
