Found in either Pike or Dubois County, Indiana, this flint/ chert tool has very strong use-polish on the bit area. Coming out of a creek, about the only use I can readily see is a mussel shell opener. The end is very tapered, not super thin, but getting even thinner at the bit (heel is 7/16" thick")l Length is 3&5/16", width is 1&15/16". The flint is something I've seen occasionally used in the area, likely a very small chert deposit that doesn't even have a name attached to it, just "chert"--had to be a fairly high silicate material, a hard structure to stand all the shell prying-open.Flaking is actually some decent pressure chipping on the edges, parallel work, so an artifact from the Early Archaic culture. The piece is far more interesting in-hand than the pictures can show it, lifetime guaranteed authentic. No additional charge for shipping, and payment preferred by check or M.O., day-after-receipt shipping on either one--Roy A.
