Good idea. I have some I need to put on here for the gurus to look at. As for yours I'm not sure of the ID on it. Nice little point though.

GarGuy 07-09-2013 06:40 PM

Well we start with a tough one. Im going to say it is a Lange just judging from one pic and not being able to see the flaking. Middle Archaic.

maybe a broke Kisatchie..Where did you find it

Copper87 07-09-2013 07:35 PM

or a broke Hoxie just from looking at my book

GarGuy 07-09-2013 08:06 PM

Copper87, the point you have is seriously exhausted. Been resharpened many times. it was origionally much larger. Exhausted points are always tough because we don't have a clear idea of how they looked new.

What about this?Attachment 515321Attachment 515322Attachment 515323
It appears to be an axe? It's sharpened completely on one side. It's got some heft to it

It is a chopper. I will try to take some pictures tonight of some common South Texas points and post them for others to ID their points.

I've got a few. All were found on my old lease between Freer and Laredo. I found close to 100 in the three years I hunted there.

bobfishbw 07-09-2013 08:23 PM

The black one was by far the best arrow head I've ever found.

Here's some of what I found last weekend. Mainly tools/scrapers, pre-forms and brokes, but I am not sure what to call the point on the top row second from left with the broken base on one side. It's about 3.5". I'd guess it to be some kind of knife?

I would have to say your right.. Its just a funny looking point

GarGuy 07-09-2013 08:46 PM

Copper87 07-09-2013 08:58 PM

I don't think it is a kerville, they usually are very finely made and the one pictured is pretty crude. Also, the cortex end is larger than the blade and for the size of a kerville the blade is pretty thin.

This is just an handful from my wifes grandfathers collection. He lived in Corsicana but owned a junk shop and traded a lot for all of his adult life. Who knows where these came from. These are just the ones I have in my possession. The second skinny one is completely clear.

I hate to say it man but I believe those are all imitations. I know an old man in Corsicana that has personally made me some that look exactly like that

hellbndr23 07-10-2013 01:18 PM

Hey dont feel bad. Thats why I posted them. All info is good info.

That is a type of real point but on these notice how there is no wear or "age" to them

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.

GarGuy 07-10-2013 06:12 PM

I would love to see them. Probably a bunch of authentic stuff in there.

All surface finds in the past year...

GarGuy 07-10-2013 07:10 PM

Snappertapper, there are several of those I would really like a better look at. Also what part of the state? Please take a good focused closeup of the point on the top row far right. The yellow one.

Also the third point to its left. It is kinda bell shaped and pointing down.

Theres more interesting stuff but lets start with those.

Statton48 07-10-2013 07:13 PM

Ok so I have a few I would like to know more about...bare with me for it might take a few to post up pics.

GarGuy 07-10-2013 07:16 PM

Please take focused closeups with something for scale.

GarGuy 07-10-2013 07:17 PM

That's a classic friley. About 1000 years old.

Statton48 07-10-2013 07:18 PM

Second one. Is it petrified?

I would like to see closeups of the circled points if possible. Focused, with flaking visible if possible on both sides.

GarGuy 07-10-2013 07:30 PM

Second is a petried wood Gary. About 3000 years old. Next is another friley and an Alba. 1000 years old. Then the two Knives....geez... I would really like to hear the story on who, how and where they were found! Not specifically where but part of the state.

Nate C 07-10-2013 07:36 PM

This one is from willbarger co. near lake kemp.
