As an Indian artifact collector, that is really cool! I don't think we have copper points here in NC.

I found these 3 copper culture artifacts in northern Minnesota last year. Didn't know what I had til I got home and cleaned them up. A rolled spear point, arrowhead and small blade. Hope to get back to that spot in the future

Those are FANTASTIC finds Coleminer, probably belong in a museum! Thanks for showing them. Think how rare those are to have survived without disintegrating, and how small of a time period that copper tips were actually used.! AND you knew to keep them!!! very cool!

I was blessed again two days ago, saving this beautiful piece from a tearout!
When I retire, I am going to have to become an archeologist (but I will be friendly to detectorists)
