    I don't walk the fields anymore - the mud is too hard on my screwed up knee. I'd like to share a few frames of personal finds I assembled recently (my wife actually let me put them on the shelf!) One frame is all hafted scrapers, one frame is all Fort Ancient triangles and similar shaped points, and one frame is a few of my biggest and best finds. Modest by collectors standards, but all are personal surface finds and I'm pretty proud of them.

    Hello and welcome to TQ. :wave: Lots of great people here.

    Your finds are very nice and you should be proud of them. The third frame is especially nice. Over the years I've found a lot and bought a few and the ones I've found will always mean more to me than the ones I've bought.

    I like the way you have them displayed too. Very pretty. I have mine in frames on the book shelf in the living room.

    Thank you for sharing and I hope you enjoy it here.

    Thanks Clovis. You probably appreciate how may miles you walk and how many small or crude or broken points you find before you find a really nice one. I've picked up a dozen maybe at auctions as well - but it's not the same -and the thrill of finding them in the field is indescribable!

    Beautiful collection. Great display. I have never found anything like that and I don't think we have any around here. All Indian country but I have never heard of anyone finding any type of point here. Your display frames are very nice and I love the clock too.

    The larger tips are actually quite extraordinary, the size of the arrow and bow, even the man to fire one of them accurately and with considerate force would be a mountain of a man.

    Demyn-

    Thanks for looking. The large frame of points are all spear points. Actually most points you will see are spear points. The bow and arrow is a relatively new innovation in prehistory and the flint arrow points were probably never more than an inch and usually smaller. Not to say that prehistoric man was not a brute - just to penetrate the hide of a mastadon or whatever he was hunting took some powerful people!

    I originally posted these in 2011. I thought they might be fun to look at again since so many names have changed in this thread. These are all personal field finds from when I was young enough to slough through muddy farm fields. I will try to post some stone tools I have found when time allows.

    You have quite a collection of points and spear tips. I imagine it would be a real thrill to come across complete Indian artifacts. Thanks for reposting.

    That is a very nice display. My wife told me I could put my collection on display but I haven't found a frame small enough to hold it!:rolleyes:
