Last in a southeast Illinois collection, but the provenance that was written on the side has faded to only a few letters. Whether the piece was found along the Wabash River drainage, or came from not-too-far-away Kentucky, there is no way to tell. Patination, though, doesn't lie, neither does the characteristic flaking pattern of these four-side-sharpened (quadra-facial) Early Archaic blade edges. Very few point types used this sort of serrated blade--very few cultures seemed to develop the tiny flaked pressure chipping techniques.Length is 2&3/8" by 1", and 3/8" thickness. A previous owner had the point glued on a board-I haven't cleaned it to preserve what little of the writing is still on that one face--since it doesn't spell out anything, I'm not sure that matters any more, and light washing will soak away any of the water-based glue. There is some dulling/ light grinding on the sides of the 'weak stem', but not much on the base. One note on the flint--it has some similarities to Ft. Payne flint, but may be an Illinois flint that's related (possibly Elco, as there are variations of that flint that have to turn up, it's not all as dark as Dover). The piece is lifetime guaranteed authentic, period. Shipping is $4.00, with checks welcomed--Roy A.
