I've held a number of Early Archaic MacCorkle points in-hand, generally find they're almost always well crafted knife heads, but this salvaged-out hornstone piece is unique to my experience--the on-edge photo should show the heavy use polish to what started as an impact fracture and was 'brain stormed' to become a different sort of hafted buffing tool. Work polish is extra heavy; length is 2&1/2" by almost 1&1/2". The lobed base shows excellent basal edge grinding. The tool comes from an Owensboro, Kentucky, collection--locally gathered, the man kept every chip he ever found. One extra note--BOTH basal lobes are deliberately notched, and the notches face opposite blade sides--they aren't nicks, they're made this way, but why? Some ancient tools, they teach us more than the 'perfect' points ever could--neat piece here, I think. Shipping is $4.00, checks appreciated--Roy A.
