These are just a few of my grandfather's arrowhead collection. We found this shadowbox at a yard sale for $2 and was perfect to put some of these on display in my son's room. my grandfather was a farmer in Kansas and he found may of these over the years. I have a box full of them, all sizes from the small bird arrowheads to larger spear points, a couple are even metal. In the center of this box you can see a pipe that he found in 1918 in the flint hills of Kansas. He has left handwritten notes along with the collection which passed down to me. My kids love looking through it.

    Nice collection, great to have the info from Gramps too, he was a smart man for doing this for the future admireres of his things. The shadow box looks great, and I especially love the pipe, a very rare item to find intact!!
