L.M. Abbott, late of Athens, Texas, was a
respected collector who was featured in
"Who's Who In Indian Relics, No. 8".  He
began hunting artifacts with his brother,
Fred, as a youngster in east Texas.

After he retired, Abbott became a very
active and successful collector, specializing
in central Texas artifacts.

Over 132 types of Texas arrow points, knives,
spear and dart points are identified in
materials prepared for this exhibit.

September 2013

Here in north Texas on Labor Day Weekend
in early September we felt an early touch of
winter's cool breath, giving us a bit of rain
from a "cold front" for the first time in
several weeks of hot summer weather.

Soon folks with access to farm lands will
daydream of stumbling across plowed fields
at the end of the harvest after a refreshing
rain cleans the dirt from possible artifacts.  
Eyes to the ground, some will be looking for
glints of agate, jasper, obsidian and other
stone used long ago ... the discarded or
exhausted remnants of ancient stone tools,
dropped and misplaced, even stored and
forgotten long ago.

Now, by chance and wind and rain, exposed
to the sharp eye of a modern collector or

Read, learn, find, enjoy.

From time to time we will look at on line artifact offerings ... from reputable
auction houses, artifact dealers and from individuals through eBay ... with
the purpose of learning how to discern what could well be some excellent
artifacts, with good provenance and history, to potentially add to your
collection.  Another purpose is to make available information and methods
which can help you do your "due diligence" research and get as much
information as you can about the authenticity and provenance of the
artifacts which you consider acquiring.

Special thanks to long time subscriber and friend, Marvin Glasgow, from the Weatherford,
Texas area, who introduced me to the L.M. Abbott Artifact Collection and arranged a special
visit to photograph many points in the collection while the Artifact Display was being prepared
for exhibition at the Doss Heritage & Cultural Center.
