At 4&7/16" this one is a very decent sized Benton point, made from a time-bleached Hornstone; width is 1&3/16", but thickness is still only 5/16". These large Mid Archaic Culture (6500 YBP) Bentons were some of the best knapped artifacts from the Middle Archaic. Note there are sections of the long blade where the transverse-parallel (diagonal) flaking is characteristic of both the Bentons and the Elk River point types. There is no basal grinding *(shouldn't be, that culture rarely ground a base), and you can see the angled flake that tells you the knapper worked every possible bit of length out of the large hornstone flake--an angled flake edge forms one side, it's NOT damage. Some usage damage on the tip, ancient, and a blade edge ding. Both spots go back 6500 years, show complete patination. An old friend bought the point from a Madisonville, Kentucky auction, neat, lifetime guaranteed authenticity artifact. Shipping is $4.00, with checks preferred, day-after-receipt shipping--Roy A.
