ID:	365357 i think I found the type it’s Etowah stamped which dates middle Mississippian period. The section I found it in matches the other artifacts I have found like a square Celt. What do you think if it’s a match to my book? NW Georgia

              Looks like a good match . Complicated stamps have so many different designs . Johnny sent me a book A world Engraved on the Swift Creek Culture . If you find any loops or eyes post them .
              What you will find interesting is the tools in the area now . To make these wood paddles they carved them out . Since I am in the Swift Creek nation area I find engravers that are larger and harder then average I feel for this purpose . Look for those . I think I just highjacked someone on a perfect example
              of a quartzite so strong it could carve wood .

                Yep, that looks like a textbook sample of etowah stamped.

                nice big piece too.👍👍

                you are likely on or very near a village site.

                  I’m actually going tomorrow to see about a loan for property out of state I’ve had my eye on for 6 months and it hasn’t sold so I think it’s time to make an offer. 7 acres all along a creek if I get it I will let you know where. But no his property is all family owned for years I’m lucky I have Permisson to hunt it

                  Waiting on some calls now don’t know how busy they are but hopefully get started by next week. Creek looks really good to lots of gravel and high banks
