Where to Buy Indian Arrowheads Online (Authentic and Replica)
Hunting for arrowheads is an incredibly fun and exciting hobby. Heading out early in the morning to walk through a local farmers field or walking a creek hunting for arrowheads is one of my favorite things to do.
There are many reasons arrowhead hunters do what they do. Some hunt them in order to rescue the ancient arrowheads before they get crushed by a modern plow. While others just simply enjoy getting out into nature, or out into the woods, on a warm day in order to cool off. While others do it simply for the thrill of the hunt.
No matter what the reason for arrowhead hunting is, the fact remains that many times, at the end of the day, we just end up empty handed.
But if you're like me, you still have the nagging desire to add another point to your collection. That is when I turn to the internet to help me find my next Indian arrowhead.
Here is a list of credible sellers of authentic Indian arrowheads for sale as well as some of the best places to buy replica Indian arrowheads.
Enjoy the hunt!

Tips For Buying And Selling Authentic Native Indian Arrowheads and Artifacts: Legal or Not?
You may be wondering if the arrowhead you're buying is legal or not. The following excerpts from the article, Buying and Selling Native Artifacts by Dennis Gaffney, might be able to help answer the question whether or not the item you're considering buying is legal.
"For collectors interested in Native American artifacts, there are a few important guidelines to bear in mind....When is it legal for individuals to buy and sell, or even own, such Native American objects?
The question is a simple one, but its answer is complicated, requiring a careful reading of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). NAGPRA is a federal law passed in 1990 that provides a process for museums and federal agencies to return certain Native American "cultural items"—human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, or objects of cultural patrimony—to lineal descendants or Indian tribes. Museums and federal agencies are almost always the ones challenged or prosecuted under the law.
...Yet if you are unsure whether NAGPRA applies to a certain piece you are interested in buying or selling—the law is often open to interpretation—both Dr. Molloy and Bruce recommend that you make sure to obtain a written receipt that lists a well-documented chain of ownership.
"Make sure to get paperwork by a reputable seller so you have something to stand on if it blows up in your face," Bruce says. "If the guy says it's not a problem to buy it, have him put it in writing. If there is a problem, you can take him to court and say you want your money back.""
Where To Buy REPLICA Indian Arrowheads
When you see a collection of modern arrowheads that were created by flint knappers in traditional methods, you can't help but pause and appropriate the work and effort that goes into making each one of those points.
In addition to collecting replica arrowheads for their beauty, many people will add them to their collection as educational pieces. I know of a few collectors that enjoy showing off their genuine collection of arrowheads to classrooms. But as you can imagine, no one would want to risk passing their genuine arrowheads around the classroom. So they bring replica arrowheads with them for the hands on part of the demonstration.
So where can you buy replica Indian arrowheads?
1. Set 25 Indian Arrowheads Agate New Replica 1/2 " - 1 1/2 "
This is an excellent collection of 25 handmade Indian arrowheads that look and feel like the real deal.
These arrowheads are made out of agate and range in size from 1/2 inch up to 1.5 inches in length. Many people who have ordered these have stated that most of the arrowheads are approximately 1 inch in length with a few being 1/2 inch and a few being 1.5 inches.
These replica arrowheads are made out of agate stone and look just like authentic artifacts. And because they're made out of agate they all have a beautiful array of colors and variation and no two are alike. But because they are made out of real stone, these arrowheads are sharp!
2. Jasper Arrowhead - Bag Of 25 Arrowheads Replica Modern- 1" Jasper Arrowheads

The size of these arrowheads are approximately 1 inch, but overall size can vary a little.
Again, these are made out of real jasper, and are very sharp.
I hope this post has helped you find the arrowheads you're looking for. Authentic arrowheads can be found for sale online, however you just want to take caution when purchasing online. Before spending money, it doesn't take much effort to do a little research on the person or the website you're hoping to buy from.
