Dee's Trophy Artifact

This is quite a beachcombers trophy.  Dee of Wyoming was just in with this spectacular museum quality artifact which is a 5¾" harpoon point carved  of bone or antler. She found it washed up on the shore among all of the the flotsam and jetsam.  I first thought it appeared to be  an Indian fish hook. Click on the image to get a better close up.

Editors notes: Bone Harpoon Heads, Late Old Stone Age
