Seller: hyla2112 (782) 100%, Location: Titusville, Florida, Ships to: US, Item: 323176309523 I acquired this piece from another collector years ago. He had inherited a vast collection from his father, an avid artifact hunter, who, along with HIS brother, had specialized in hunting areas of South Georgia, North Florida, and Alabama, especially along the Flint River Basin, in the late 1950's through the early 1970's .... He told me that he believed his father had collected this piece somewhere in South Georgia .... To the best of my knowledge and research, it appears to be a crudely fashioned Savannah River Point. This would make it approximately 3000 years old (give or take 500 years). Hard to say if it was made to be an Atlatl Point or a Knife Blade. It was probably designed as an ornamental or fetish piece. It measures 3 inches long by 1.5 inches wide, about 3/8 inches thick. Several experienced collectors have looked at this piece and all told me that they saw nothing which made them doubt its authenticity .... I must admit that this is not the most beautiful, symmetrical workmanship I have seen .... That is a real shame, because the material is absolutely GORGEOUS ! What makes this point unique is that at the top of its obverse face, there is clearly the DESIGN OF AN OLD MAN'S FACE staring out of it .... I have no doubt that this piece represented powerful medicine to whoever possessed it, and was, and still is TODAY, a VENERATED POWER OBJECT .... I believe that that, in itself, makes this item much more valuable than my opening bid price. I welcome any and all inquiries, and any new information as to what kind of point it might be, approximate age, and type and origin of the material from which it is made ....
