    No, I dont think we should let that one in the Dickson club. It looks like it wanted to be in the Dickson club at one time but due to possible resharpening it reduced itself down to where it might get kicked out the club totally. You might try the Waubesa club. I've heard they looking for new members. To join this club try your pic #567.

    Kent, sorry if I touched a nerve and I'm not being "anal", but the Typology forum was created to help people ID their artifacts and Adena Dickson is a misnomer and is thankfully finally being corrected in most of the new identification books. It is not an Adena Point type. It is a mid to late Woodland culture Hopewell type so that is why I removed them from the Adena thread. Nothing personal, just trying to keep things straight here so people have the chance to learn.

    That is a killer Dickson by the way. Probably one of the best I've ever seen.

    Doc, where did that come from?

    Found this one on 6/18/2011 about a mile and half down river from the one I posted above.

    It came out of the Jim Spears collection from Sumner Co. TN. By way of Don Black.
