NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS FROM THE ADMIN TEAM

The forum has been put into “read only” mode to temporarily stop any further posting. This is needed to ensure that all data can be migrated across to the new forum without interruption. It appears that some of you are still able to post (perhaps because you were logged in at the time the forum was switched to “read only” and have not subsequently logged out). That was not intended to be the case, so please STOP making any further posts.

We are still awaiting advice from the Developer team on when the new forum will go live. When it does, you will no longer see the orange banner message at the top of the page and you will need to log in again. You will also need to renew your password (but you should be able to re-use the same password that you currently have). Passwords cannot be transferred across to the new forum because they are encrypted for your security.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE

Welcome, Guest

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?
