    Best point so far

    Hey guys,
    found my best point so far and am still really excited.
    Im wondering if anyone can tell me anything about it? From Great Basin area. Is it an arrowhead, dart point, spear point?

    Heres another view for scale. Got really lucky since its the same color as most of the normal rocks in this area. I noticed the basic outline when there was a small break in the waves. Picked it up and felt the sharpness then wiped the algae off and said "yes"!

    Nice one. We will need a size reference object in the photo. i.e. Nickel, bic lighter, ruler etc. Many Birdy types look like dart points. I'm no Great Basin expert but we have several here. Someone will help you out if you let em know info on size.

    Nice point and my guess is Cold Springs Middle Archaic 5000 - 4000 B. P. But could be a Northern Side Notched Early to Late Archaic 9000 - 3000 B.P. what part of the Great Basin?
