Maybe we should have a new thread: Things that shouldn't be found on a river!

I figured it was stashed there after a robbery so never had the desire to touch it and see if any money was inside, didn't want my prints on it LOL

By the way, great pics!
Did you bother to call the police in case the robbers prints were still there?

By the way, that point you found there is a really nice one. Unbelievable condition. I'm not a real expert on Texas arrowheads but it looks like a carrolton to me.

Yes Grumpy, I did bother to call the police....

I gave exact details as to where it was, was only 20' off the edge of a road in downtown South Bend, Indiana...

Was told they would send a unit out to get it, so I hung out fishing within eye sight of it for 3 hours to ensure they could find it, nobody ever showed up, said to heck with it, came by about 4 hours after that, it was still there...

Since my usual parts of the river are down stream of a major city (Austin), I could fill a camera card with junk, trash, plastic bottles and foam cups. The popular way to get rid of old used tires in the 60's and 70's was to throw them in the river. If I see old fishing line I make sure and collect it. I've seen firsthand what it can do to herons, egrets, ospreys, etc.
I usually choose to photograph the beauty.

Dan - thanks for the ID. I sent the photo to a local collector and he said it could be a Castroville or a Williams dart point. Looking at some examples a Carrolton is a distinct possibility too. It's Archaic era for sure.
Amazing to think it was knapped perhaps 2000 years ago and I found it in that condition.

Thanks everybody for the kind responses.

It's not barbed enough to be a Castroville. They are a typical corner notched point. It's not likely to be a Williams either. I missed one other possibilty though. It may be a zorra point. I think it's made of Georgetown flint. Looking at the shape it's in, I'd go back there and look hard. It's in such good shape I doubt it was ever used. I'd look and see if it was part of a cache.

Thanks Dopey.

I found a photo of a Williams. Notice the real barbed look. Your point is more stemmed than corner notched.
