A long, long time part of my artifact collection, this Fractured Base Decatur has a slightly out--of-the-ordinary fracturing to the stem--the base was wider than the tiny-based Decturs generally shown--see a very close example in Overstreet #13, page 492. The slightly thicker base meant that the typical edge-to-center flake removal was slightly below the indented center of the base. Therefore there isn't the "finger nail catch" where the flake scars would meet in the center. If you collect Decatur points this will all make sense, but is a bit hard to describe--hopefully the pictures will show the flake removal better than my writing. The point is hornstone 2&3/4" by 1&1/8" and thickness of 3/8" max. Basal edge is heavily ground, blade edges heavily beveled. Damage is only on one small barb end and a chip off the very tip.Provenance will be posted when I can find the missing tag, either Indiana or Kentucky, though. LIFETIME guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, checks preferred, day-after-receipt shipping--Roy A.
