    Some New Old Finds!

    Took yesterday off of work and headed back up to Warren to some old spots of mine.

    Found my very 1st point on the lip of the cellar hole. It's called a Lamoka Point, New York State Museum - Projectile Point Type Collection (nysed.gov)

    As I've now learned it was probably used as a knife rather than an arrowhead. Points are sharpened objects made before the invention of arrow heads.

    The IH is 1874.

    Also found this cool cigar tin, I'm researching the age but feels it's in the early 1910's-1919.

    HH!
