  • Paddle drill

    This drill was found by my grandfather many years ago, it was in his collection he gave to me he cannot recall what state and where exactly he found it but I've been researching some of his points so I can tell him more information about them and how cool they are! Also it's just good spending time with him. I was just curious if anyone knew the type of material, possible location it may have been found (try to jog his memory) and value? I'd never in a million years consider selling it but I'd just like to tell him more about the artifacts he discovered. Any information is greatly appreciated thank you for your time and good bless.

    Don't know much about Kansas material, but the drill looks a lot like the style and material we find in Georgia.

          Outside looking in, so to speak... If he don’t remember where and when, then the what makes no difference ! Take the old guy for a massage, stiff drink, and a good meal....

              hard to speculate from a photo. Some flints and other lithics will patinate to a white color . I wish I could help. Spend time with him. That is a priceless gift for both of you.

                What Hoss said.

                Do that.

                You are on the right track, as you mentioned...spend as much time as you can with him. You won’t regret it, and you can’t get it back.

                The drill is nice, and as mentioned above...the value is priceless.
