As close as I can come to identifying this colorful flint is that it's a western Kentucky outcrop of flint that localizes in the eastern Daviess--western Hancock County, Kentucky, area. To my knowledge the flint hasn't been named--my thanks to John Walker for showing me examples of the flint to begin with--those samples show the flint can also come in a black form with large fossil inclusions. The Dovetail itself came out of Webster County, Kentucky, and this is the only piece of this flint I've seen coming out of Webster County. Obviously flints were traded, and Early Archaic hunters could range quite a few miles past the 'normal' distribution range for a flint (I've seen one flint that seldom made it more than a few miles from the source, but have heard of Indiana Hornstone found hundreds of miles away from its source creeks). This Dovetail was salvaged on the tip (and wing) following impact fractures, fine pressure chipping to repair the breaks on each spot; length is 3&3/16" by 1&11/16". Thickness gets up to 7/16". Basal grinding is excellent--as an Early Archaic point type, it should be. Patina is also excellent, every detail being lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00 with checks or M.O.s each receiving day-after-receipt shipping--Roy A.
