Ancient transparent obsidian Gunther style arrowhead from Modoc County in northern California -- found in 1960s by Pat Welch
Ancient gray obsidian Gunther style arrowhead from Siskiyou County in northern California -- found 2008 by Jennifer Peterson
Arrowhead Collecting On The WebTM
www.ArrowheadCollectingOnTheWeb.com
Another Outstanding Arrowhead Found On The Internet,
By Wandering The Fields And Streams Of eBay.
From Northern California, Where It Was Discovered In 2008.
This Gunther style arrowhead was found near
Shasta Lake south of Mt. Shasta in Siskiyou
County of northern California in the spring of
2008 by Jennifer Peterson.  Her eBay ID is
"angelfaerieland".

This translucent gray obsidian arrowhead is
just 1-1/8" long by 13/16" wide.  Note the fine
serrations along each edge of the blade.   There
are 17 serrations on the right edge, and 17 along
the left edge.  This makes the serrations less than
1/16" apart, measured from tip to tip.  It means
that the serration notches are each
about 1/32" wide.  Imagine
the size of the tool used
to make these tiny
serration notches!
By comparison, the base notches, made for
binding the point to the arrow shaft, are almost
huge.  Of course, looking at the small size of the
base tang, we have to wonder how this tiny point
was attached and bound to an arrow shaft.  Not to
mention how large or small in diameter that
arrow shaft itself would be.  The inset photos
show this arrowhead at about twice actual size,
for reference and an appreciation of the wickedly
delicate nature of the needle tip of the point.

Thank you, Jennifer Peterson and Pat Welch,
for making so many quality, authentic, ancient
arrowhead and dart points from your extensive
northern California and Oregon Artifact
Collection available to an ever- growing
number of appreciative and enthusiastic
"arrowhead collectors on the web".

I Found This Arrowhead
You can do it, too.  Every month in "Arrowhead
Collecting On The Web" we show you how your
mouse can do the searching on the world wide
web.  We bring you information and links to
on-line sources of authentic, ancient arrowheads.  
We talk about how to tell if an arrowhead is
ancient, or if it's a modern reproduction, and we
give you links to reputable authenticators who
can provide experienced, scientific examinations
of arrowheads to verify and certify the
authenticity of stone points and other tools
you collect.  I found this ancient arrowhead,
shown here, on the world wide web,
although it was originally found in
Modoc County of northern California
in the 1960's by Pat Welch.  
I purchased if from Pat's daughter,
Jennifer Peterson, in an auction on
eBay in November 2009.  
The eBay ID which Jennifer uses
is "angelfaerieland.:"
Pat Welch found this expertly made, completely
transparent obsidian "Gunther" style arrowhead
in the place where it was last used, abandoned
or stored away and forgotten.  Now, any collector
can tell you that there are times when you will
want to wander the fields and streams yourself.
So, every month, in the pages of
"Arrowhead Collecting On The Web," we also
provide articles and photographs to show you
how to effectively look for and find ancient
arrowheads and other stone tools for your
collection.  We also share stories by
readers across America who write
about and photograph their own,
personal finds.  Don't miss a single
article each month in the pages of  
"Arrowhead Collecting On The Web".
