One of the best base-and-barb combinations I've come across on a Hornstone Pinetree point, this 2&1/16" by 1&1/2" Union County, Kentucky Early Archaic point shows some extraordinary workmanship until you get to the tip. There was an Early Archaic impact fracture tip close-up shows where the user/ hunter "quick-fixed" the tip with a twinned fracture technique, one strike from either side to make a beveled point sort of like a steel drillbit. That part is 100% lifetime guaranteed authentic, but the problem is it looks (to me) like the modern era flint finder was trying to 'improve' the way the tip looked (so he could sell the piece); he added a couple deep serrations to either side below the tip itself to narrow the top of the point--I see what looks like steel marks from a nail (or woodscrew, knowing the history of the finders' family).The price reflects the modern work. Personally, sending the piece for professional restoration is the best way to "dress over" the modern alteration.Please, if you're interested in buying the piece, understand WHAT you're buying, and that it's sold as an authentic point with modern rework. I can't present the Pinetree any more honestly than that. Shipping is $4.00, checks or M.O.s welcomed--no paypal payments unless you want to pay their fees--Roy A.
