Great looking piece of Kentucky Sonora flint, a contracted-base Big Sandy point 2&1/4" by 1&3/8", slightly over 1/4" max thickness. The upper balde shows the "twisted bevel" sharpening style the contracted Base Big Sandy types are know for.The piece comes from somewhere east of Owensboro, Kentucky, likely into Ohio County, Ky, as you're getting closer to Sonora Filnt distribution range there--outside of its distribution range it's rare to find certain flints--could be only a few miles for small deposits to several hundred miles in the case of a much-used flint like Hornstone. The price here ($30) reflects the fact that I know the extreme end of the tip was made into a burin--something to punch leather--it may be later culture work or it may have been done by the guy who found the piece. I can't tell you which, only that it isn't 7500 year old patinated work (as is the rest of the piece). Sometimes there are no easy answers, you just can't tell with 100% certainty. Shipping is $4.00, checks are welcomed--Roy A.
