A form of Sonora Flint, still had the Kentucky field dirt, never washed over the decades the piece was owned--I'll call the family "casual collectors", they'd pick up an artifact if they came upon it, but not go out of their way to display the piece, it went in an old fishing tackle box then sort of forgotten. Cleaned up, this Dovetail (with a bit of a Lost Lake look to it), Adair or Russell County, Kentucky, measures just a fraction over 3" by 1&5/8"--at 3/8" thickness the width-thickness ration is excellent--as is basal grinding. Note the angle of the barbs are appx. 45 degrees downward, not 'basically flat' (almost 90o) as a Dovetail would be. One barb shows ancient salvage, not a new flake on that 'stubby' barb; the other is angled and thinned.--the Early Archaic period knapper had a slightly different 'take' on how a barb should be formed. In a way you can follow the line of what was the rounded Cobbs Knife base from barb-to-Dove-like base. Too, that base is what gives the piece an interesting character, I think, it's more rounded than your standard Lost Lake ( flat base)--you see elements of both Early Archaic styles. For those who want a patination contrast, there is a modern-made chip on the side of the stem. Photo shows the patination difference. Every detail is lifetime guaranteed authentic, as described. Shipping is included, payment to be by check, money order, or "Friends and Family" (through Paypal)--Roy A.
