Compared to flaked stone, metal projectile points are EXTREMELY rare from ANY Pre-Columbian culture of the Americas. Made heavy cast copper bronze and hand-forged to its final shape, this is a primary spike spear head. It would have been affixed to a wooden shaft and either thrown, or used for thrusting attacks in battle. The level of preservation is impossible to improve upon. Even the attachment shaft pin is still in place in the base where it survived long after the wooden shaft was lost to the ravages of time. The surface shows the FINEST green encrusted patina with mineral deposits still attached.
Not only is one of only two examples we have ever had the opportunity to handle in over 20 years, of the few we have seen in museum publications, none compare to this specimen! It is that rare! For the ultimate addition to a private museum collection of the most advanced and rare Pre-Columbian weaponry, the acquisition of this rarity would most definitely be a cherished addition!
