  • Unaltered Ancient Paleo Clovis

    How many unaltered paleo Clovis exists that are actually known? Please share any pictures of these ancient masterpieces that are undeniably authentic. I only have one in my collection and it had seen its better day over 10k Years ago but it is still my favorite with the slight ear ding and the most beautiful ugly patina that I have ever seen lol. I can still imagine how beautiful it was before it was used and then lost for thousands of years until the rain washed it out of an eroding cornfield on the edge of a bayou bank.

    Welcome to the site ....I’ve always thought that most complete Clovis points were either in a cache or a grave good ..Certainly out here where I live, the nearest quarry is 120 miles away so nearly all my finds with the exception of prehistoric points have been resharpened... In my pic, #1 ,# 3 and # 5 are most complete. The large Plainview was and the Folsom were resharpened. #2 and #4..... JJ

      Lifetime of hunting. Unfortunately those were found before there were 1 cell phones, 2 digital cameras. I’d like to throw my cell phones out the window at 80 mph on most days! I do have a gps shot and it was done after the fact upon revisiting the sites hoping for more. Thing is, is that, these sort of points are all over the country ! Circumstances out here allow us to find them. In Tx, most Clovis points are found in Gaines county or Port Arthur, on the beach. Port Arthur, is where Janice Joplin was from, for all you hard Rockers ! I think of her when I find a broken Clovis, I don’t know why. Take another piece of my heart baby ?

    Thanks Lindenmeier Man! I appreciate you sharing those epic paleo beauties with us! It amazes me to see the best flaking patterns are usually the oldest examples. I read an article that stated less than 13,000 true paleo Clovis are known and documented so not many people will ever have the privilege of holding one of these “Masterpieces”

      I'd like to read that article. Do you remember where you read it and can you post a link to it?

      There might be more that aren’t documented than one would like to believe. I tried to contact the state entity here Responsible for documenting such things several times by several methods to share mine with them, and I’ve never heard back from them.
      I’ll post a pic below.

      Sweet ! Yes I’d think most are not documented , just as a matter of fact.

    Broken Arrow The article is actually here in the forum under Identifying fakes and reproductions. Go to page 2 identifying paleo Clovis. Very interesting post and I absolutely believe there are many that have not been publicly shared. There is no telling what farmers in these parts have stored away from years of plowing fields but all we can do is speculate unless they share their finds.

        I agree with you 100 percent . There is a call line I read in a book for Georgia for Dalton’s . I never called and Johnny you can chime in . It’s a map showing counties where they were found . Now I personally have held 4 of these and the people that found them would never think of calling or reporting . EVER

              Yes Jethro that is a Clovis knife point that was worked out of an old deer bone. I have never seen another one like it with both sides carved. Definitely one of my favorite pieces besides the 4 1/2” Clovis that was found nearby on the same day
