A hemitite (or ocher) stained Turkey Tail from the Spencer--Perry County, Indiana, area--Late Archaic-knapped from the center of a Hornstone flint spall, a bullseye forming the center of the blade. The piece started larger and now shows the ancient use to the tip and stem--that stem indention could have come from re-hafting the piece, a 'notch' made to better fit it to a new handle. It's not unusual to see the pointed end of a Turkey Tail deliberately flattened so it wouldn't split a wooden handle--or, if it was mounted to an antler beam, that's an unusually hard surface to grind down, if the ancient hunter was in a hurry it'd be easier to make a notch in the base of the point than spend an hour grinding a perfect 'socket' for the blade.. Nice piece, nice color, and lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, checks or M.O.s welcomed--Roy A.
