A "heartbreaker", there's no other word that fits so well on this Fractured Base Dovetail. The piece is from a fellow southwest Indiana collector, but if I'm identifying the flint ccorrectly it's made of Illinois Cobden flint, the patination is more brown than gray (Cobden turns brown), and the bandings in the flint are more what you see on that "Illinois Hornstone"--length is 1/16" under 3", and width is 1&7/16". There is a strong medial ridge at 3/8", and the bevel to each face clearly says that repeated sharpening cut the width. Note how fine the pressure flaking is on the bevel sharpening, this was an Early Archaic knapper at the top of their game. The one barb and the tip are ancient nicks, and the work polish on the tip indicates it was used as a buffing tool; you can feel the flake scars were worn down, sort of like a wood chisel would wear. The basal edge shows the deliberate fracturing that the Dectur people used, HEAVILY polished basal edge. A very nice piece, slight damage aside, guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, with checks or M.O.s welcomed--Roy A.
