Hello all!

This is my third and latest metal Arrowhead I have found here in N.M. while hunting for meteorites.  Thought you all might like to see it. The previous ones are fully intact and are all shaped a little different from this one.

Hello Rich,

   This is what I have been able to find out about the metal Arrowheads of N.M. so far:

For those in close contact with the Spanish and the succeeding colonial settlements, metal soon replaced stone in arrowheads. Much more common in the Southwest after United States Army introduced ample raw strip metal in the barrel hoops and box bands which came along with the military supply wagons, metal arrowpoints become an increasingly common part of the archaeological record after 1600. Early metal points were made from spoon handles, knives, wagon wheel hoops, and other flat pieces of iron. By the mid-1800s, Apache, Navajo, Comanche, Ute and other mobile horse-mounted fighters were using chisels and tin snips to cut out arrowpoints to re-arm themselves during quick raids and hunting trips.

Farmdigger,

  Thanks!  You just never know what your digging up!  I found a mini cannon ball the size of a golf ball the other day so I dig all my targets.

Those are usually grape shot.

Several would be shot in a canister.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog,

Thanks!     Still learning about the civil war items here in N.M.  One of the new guys in my unit is really in to Civil war stuff to include being a part of the reenactments here in N.M. I find something usually on every outing on private land. Makes for some very interesting detecting.

Thanks for the info. I would have thought it was an old building tool and left it. Shows you what I know!

Cheers,

Mike
