A note on repops

image

It is not often I find myself picking up reproduction artifacts, But recently I aquired a beautiful 4″ inch long Perkiomen, recently and skillfully worked by a local artisan. My intention in doing this is more virtuous than most, and in this case the point almost exactly matches a mid section found at a favorite site in my area. I have parted with a few points found there But in this case I was elated to come across such a nicely worked point to relate to such a large mid section so closely. For the amateur collector I still want to note this was sold to me as such, and some ridges on the face of the repop can be felt much more sharp, and fresh from the recent knapping than one will find on original, ancient points. Photos to come soon, as this is a great center piece that I want to show off.
