One absolutely fine-made Thebes from the Vigo--Knox County, Indiana, area. The piece is NOT broken, note the bit of dark brown cortex on the basal edge, the knapper simply ran out of flint before he was able to fashion a full lobe on this Thebes. You can feel the heavy polish in the slightly concave area--the maker ground the flint to a smooth finish so it wouldn't cut into the sinew used to lash the knife to its handle--the rest of the basal edge is also ground, heavy edge grinding being a trait of these very Early Early Archaic peoples. Some Thebes I've held have heavier grinding than any other culture. This 2&9/16" by 1&3/8", 3/8" max thickness blade shows multiple sharpen-and-use cycles, strong beveled edges, very well made tip. The finder put a catalog number on the piece, but without access to his notes it doesn't tell you much. The flint, as best I can identify it, is a form of Indiana Holland flint--if it has a sub-type name for the chert deposit it isn't in the DeRegnaucourt Chert Type book.The Midwest was once an inland sea, coral reefs dissolved and then solidified into chert beds in many, many locations. Mineralization here is absolutely great, every detail is lifetime guaranteed authentic. No additional cost for shipping, and checks or M.O>s each receive day-after-receipt shipping--Roy A.
