San Jacinto meets the Brazos River
Came across this 4-1/2" San Jacinto yesterday. THIN, THIN, THIN.
It was a Brazos river area surface find from last fall, found by a young man riding ATV's at his neighbor's place.
His first find and they were not even looking for arrowheads when he found it.
These almost have to be Scallorn related but this one was totaly out of context, so not much help other than studying the way it's made, which is just like a giant arrowpoint.

It's in the center of my birdpoint frame right now ... at least until someone talks me out of thinking these are Late Prehistoric Knives.
I met them at the old Circle K (Valero now) in Old Ocean. I wasn't expecting to see anything like this.
That was way too easy. I'll have to call for details.
super point you aquired there that would be a center piece for sure !!! thank you for the view !!
That's a beautiful piece and style that's hard to come by. Do you know in what county it was discovered? Just trying to determine how far north these things occur.
Tell the finder to keep looking at the ground and keep your phone #!
It came from the Fort Bend county side of the Brazos, not really north at all.
I have seen them from a general distribution from their namesake San Jacinto river valley to the La Grange area, back thru Eagle Lake to the middle coast. That puts this one about in the middle of that. They may be a lot further distributed, but they are rare enough to make it hard to say.
What a whopper! That's a killer piece David, glad you were able to acquire it....
Killer piece David.
