    Clovis REAL DEAL ??????

    This is a Clovis I purchased from purported finder . It was said to have been found in Iowa where the Mississippi and Iowa Rivers meet. It was a corn field on a bluff bordered on the inland side by a clear rocky creek. The site has yielded everything from paleo to bird points . Please offer opinions with reasons it s right or wrong! All the pictures I have till I get it .

    That flute looks wrong to me, and something about that stack in the middle . . . I call modern!

    What jumped out at me immediately was that it has a "tumbled" look...like it has been abraded to remove the fresh flake scars.

    I agree with indy..looks like a modern jig flute to me..

    I'm not necessarily jumping on the proverbial "band wagon" and my opinion ain't worth much but it doesn't seem correct to me either. If I were a buyer, I'd be scared of it.

    Wouldn't bet on that one John. Flaking isn't right for Clovis and the edges appeared to have been dulled. You see that naturally sometimes when they come out of a fast moving river system with sand.....but the face of the artifact shows no river exposure.

    Maybe I'm the only one who thinks this but...doesn't the description of the provenance sound a little too detailed...maybe too likely a spot?
