My great grandfather gave these to me and I would appreciate any information any of you could give me on them. I have had them for years and don't know anything about them. I know he found them in central Arkansas.

Welcome from central Illinois. Looks like G10 has typed 'em! I can only add the first one looks like a high grade of Novaculite, not sure about the blade although it probably is too.
Sometimes I can.....sometimes I can't....Sometimes I just don't try

Thank you both. That will give me somewhere to start some research. I don't know much about them and my son and I were looking at them and wanted to see what we could find out. We have several more that are smaller and he wants to go look for more. It's been many years since my great grandfather found them but I think I might be able to find the spot again.

:welcome: from Southeast Louisiana, and I agree, that's a very nice Gary. The second looks like a Abasolo, its time period is around 10000-3000 B.P., it commonly found in most Southern Midwestern states and Mexico an it's shape is a Lanceolate. It's description according to my Overstreet is a medium to large size, broad, lanceolate point with a rounded base. The blade can be beveled on one side of each face and the base can be thinned. Hope this helps... "D"

Can anyone tell me what these would be worth if I decided to sell them?
