    What kind of arrowhead and artifact collections does everyone have? Here is a pic of some of the arrowheads I've found over the years. Nothing spectacular but a few good ones, found alot of pieces but a few whole arrowheads, spear heads and scrapers. Post some pics of some you have. :big_smile:

    My great Uncle had a collection of about 5,000 scrapers, pottery, axes, if an Indian used it he had it. He was an old trapper, who roamed the hills. After he passed away he gave it to the a college who use to bring their students down to view his collection.

    Some of those arrowheads could be worth some money to collectors.

    About 20 years ago, I ran into a guy on my TN fishing trips that was a mussel diver. He found lot's in KY lake and became real interested in how the Indians made arrow heads. He had it figured out and started making some in the winter, when it was 2 cold to dive. He made them into earings for women and general jewelery. Man the were great.

    He showed me a round stone that he used to chip the flint. Real neat. I wonder if that old boy is still alive.

    My dad had a big collection he found when he was a kid, farming with horses. It got given to a museum.

    I have several from 4 states. My digital camera is down so I can't post the pictures. I love finding them. We have some good sites around here.
