I've held a good number of Big Sandy points in-hand--but never another with a base this auriculate--calling it by the 'official name' a Contracted Base, seems to not do it justice. The auricles, the barbs, it's almost like a Late Paleo culture Quad maker met a Big Sandy knapper, they compared notes and blended their cultural styles. The base is heavily ground, the barbs are ancient damage. How long were those barbs, though? Something to give a collector a "Now wait a minute"--the blade sharpening is practically beveled, and the flaking scars are parallel oblique in places (upper blade).. To cap it off, the tip is made into a burin (drill point). For an only 1&7/8" by 1&7/16" point (Union County, Kentucky) there are more things going on with this one piece than easily counted--yet lifetime guaranteed real. Some collectors like grade ten points--I like to collect pieces that make me think. Shipping is $5.00, checks are always welcomed--Roy A.
