Thanks for the link! This is very, very similar to mine. Mine has a bit less taper, but in all other respects, very much alike! Super nice piece you have there!

Truly an amazing find!
Because of its age and the fact it's copper from what country could have the owner been from and what does this say about early people in the U.S.?

wow! super find!

makes you wonder how the Indians back then figured out how to create copper tools.



From the Internet:

Native Americans were the first to mine and work the copper of Lake Superior and the Keweenaw Peninsula of northern Michigan between 5000 BCE and 1200 BCE. The natives used this copper to produce tools.

The northern Michigan deposits are copper metal not ore so no smelting needed.
Much copper is at the surface so just pick them up. A little bit of hammering shows the ductile properties so not hard to go to making things.

Amazing piece of history! Congratulations on saving it! And to think how excited i am to find my first silver! I agree about the Smithsonian with your name under it. I bet your heart was pounding and hands were shaking with that!

Haha, thanks guys. The Smithsonian would be nice. The archaeologist I talked to at our state museum thought it was a very fine example of one.
