Native American Relics

I'm creating these pages as a way to catalogue my collection and learn about point typology.  It's also the place where I'll be recording the notes I take while doing research on ancient America.  These points are not for sale though I am occasionally interested in purchasing old collections especially if they are personal finds. Personal recollections by the finder about the finding of the artifacts are definitely of interest to me. Many times the story is more interesting than the point itself.
