A buddy of mine found this point, I don't remember how long ago he found it, but I got to look at it again last night and took a pic for y'all to see. It's only half way fluted on the other side. His dad told him it's called a Cumberland point. Anyone know of it?

Easy 2k, good rule of thumb is 1k per inch, unless you get above 5" then you can almost name your price. Usually Cumberlands are fluted all the way to the tip on both sides. Awesome point!

I'll tell him that... he won't sell it of course but he would prob be interested to know. He thought it was valued in the hundreds

It has a small chip or two, actually one corner he glued back on from dropping it. I'm sure that cuts into the value

Oh and he found it on a gravel bar where I have fished before near my neighborhood....

I don't think he will ever part with it, but he has two metal detectors and wants me to go dig with him soon, so maybe the three of us could meet up and hunt for stuff? And possibly you could take a look at the Cumberland point... It's up to him, but I'm sure he wouldn't mind showing it.

My buddy found his on accident too, while fishing on a gravel bar. All the gravel was coated in mud dust from recent high water and he thought the point was just another willow leaf at first.
