I can't believe what was found today!!!! Clovis baby!!!!!Well, we took a family trip to the lake this weekend, my 4 year old, my old lady, our puppy and me. I grubbed up a couple of Gary points and some brokes yesterday. We went back to the lake today. My girlfriend tried arrowhead hunting with me for the second time ever. Right off the bat she got a point with a busted tip. We moved spots and are some lunch on the beach. Me and my son started grubbing. Stephanie got upset because she had left her book in the truck. She crawled out in the water and set down beside me. She then made clear we wouldn't find anything because there were not any rocks there. Right after she said that she got a funny look on here face. I asked her what she bad found then held this point up and asked if she did good. I still can't believe she found this. Her 3rd arrowhead ever. I'm calling it a Clovis. Anybody else have another name for it?

Chris, great find and looks like you need to take her on every hunt!
Not doubting you, but do you think it could be something other than a Clovis? Doesn't have the classic look to it.

It could be something else. I've been told Clovis, Redstone, fluted Allen. It could be any thing like that. Do u have any idea on it? Thanks for the help.

I don't believe it's Clovis. It's too far south for Allen and it's too far west for Redstone. What I do think you have is a class A Plainview. Super find and just an awesome piece. Thanks for the look. I'm sure you will get lots of opinions on your piece. It is a super find.
Thanks Bob

I am no Paleo expert but if it was found up here I would call it Redstone and they are much rarer than Clovis. Whatever you decide it is a very nice one! Get pics and congrats to your Lady.
Sometimes I can.....sometimes I can't

My first impression was Redstone too but then you are too far west. That point is a great find in any event. Keep us posted on your final opinion please.

Chris, first off, killer point. I'm no expert, but for the heck of it I checked one of my favorite referances: Stone Age Spear and Arrow Points of the Midcontinental and Eastern United States(1987) by Noel Justice. Here is what he says regarding the distribution of Redstone points: "Present information suggests that the distribution of the type is primarily confined to the South in an area including southern Missouri, northern Texas, and Alabama." He shows a distribution map, which includes northernmost east Texas. Does not include the panhandle. Also includes southern Oklahoma. From your profile info, it looks like you live in the part of Texas included. If his info is correct. Distribution map also includes most of Arkansas and northern Mississippi and Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky, southern Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana. If he's right about Texas, it could be a Redstone as it sure does look like one.

Looks like a fluted Allen to me. The flute keeps it from being so many things that it sure looks like it could be. How thick is it? I'd say as another said a Plainview, but the flute keeps it "supposedly" from being a Plainview. I'd send it off to get papered by Rogers. Where did you find it? I think a couple of more pictues of your girlfriend holding the point might help us figure it out. :woohoo:

Congratulatons,
J.

and something to keep in mind when typing it is how deep that basal notch is.

One more thing, are we sure that is an intentional flute? Doesn't look quite as smooth as a flute should be. If its not, hands down Plainview. But, check out my sigpic. That is a Plainview. Looks quite different huh?
