I have seen many arrowheads and collections; however, I am puzzled by these. Please tell... any information.

    The two on the left do not look like arrowheads, looks like the wrong kind of rock, and I do not see any signs of being worked. However, I could be wrong.

    Thanks Pack!

    The far left one must be an arrowhead used or too old, I think!

    The centre one is much bigger, maybe for bigger game?

    I agree with packrat.
    Sometimes a rock is just a rock.

    Take them to a University & show them to someone well versed on the subject.

    Agree with packrat-- the one on the right looks worked.

    The center piece looks similar in overall shape to a hide scraper, but it isn't out of flint and doesn't show any edge work.

    Thanks all!!!

    Yes, it is important to me to find more information on things.

    First Nations have been here for over six millions years, as Elders have said,
    and as now there are more proofs found in North America!

    Montagnais and other First Nations were using rocks they sculpted so they became tools, we all know that.

    Yes, the big one here is a puzzle; maybe an arrowhead for a bigger game; I agree that it could also be a scraper, as one of my great uncles did scrape the fat off skins!!! It could have been also an arrowhead?

    The longest one (right), if I remember could have been used once thread such as skin or a wire was centred around it to make it an arrowhead or another kind of tool?

    Interesting... are your replies.

    I am an avid collector of native American artifacts. Mabel I can shed some light on your items. To me , the look like that the indigenous people of the area would use on a daily basis. The center one could be used as an axe head judging from the size and shape not fancy but functional. The one to the right possibly used as a hide scraper too remove pieces of flesh of of various hide before curing. And the one on the left my have been used as a hammer head like the axe head only smaller . Again functional not fancy .I have many such examples in my own collection. I hope this helps.
