Compared to flaked stone, metal projectile points are EXTREMELY rare from ANY Pre-Columbian culture of the Americas. Made of copper sheet rolled to a tight point and left open at the bottom for a socket, 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.
This is one of only two examples we have ever had the opportunity to handle or offer for sale in over 20 years! It is that rare! This scarce Pre-Columbian spear head is in superb preservation, which is rare considering the fragile nature of the thin copper sheet, especially at the base. For fanciers of Pre-Columbian weaponry, the acquisition of this rarity would most definitely enhance the most advanced collections.
