Wow nice frame It always amazes me to size of artifacts from other parts of the country I find mostly small points the larger pieces are always broke or so it seems.

I noticed that also.. Most of my northwest points are very small points, but Im alway amazed because the pieces from the west coast, those birdpoints are always more intricately made than the midwest examples.. I am always amazed by that..I think we are amazed always by that which we are not use to..

That blade is a adena cache blade from Carter co. Ky.. I found the fox valley and the fluted bifurcate. Thanks for the compliments..

I love Carter flint.. There is a rock shelter close to where I live.. There must be several tons
Of flint chips.. All Carter cave, some of it heat treated, purple, pinks
Some mimics nethers with the bandings.. I got one piece of
Green Carter cave.. I was told it is much rarier than green flint ridge
