      Hey Hal, Thanks for showing the awesome artifacts. It's mind blowing to try and imagine how much time it took to make all those barrel beads.

      Outstanding as usual Hal! Having an ornament like that shark tooth means they would always have a cutting tool with them..

      You need editor. Monster shark’s monster tooth not “trinket”. Wanna see pottery piece with face—- you draw what’s missing, please!

      Also, I need lesson how to distinguish ancient man-made hole in shell from maybe clio boring sponge hole. I guess if find 3000 shell beads altogether, know sponge didn’t leave em like that, so maybe save Q and lesson for post of shell pendant or gorget. I’m comfortable with shell artifacts generally, but pretty pieces with single or double holes always give me pause.

        If those are trinkets Id love to see valuables. Megalodon tooth for a pendant super cool. That is something that has been eluding me also. A nice Meg tooth

        Mega cool Hal! Makes me wonder how the old boy lost it? Was it an oops it fell of my neck while swimming, or something more sinister.
