Paleo Points


Type: Wheeler
Provenance: Rosetta, Kentucky on Sinking Creek
Material: brown chert
Size: 1-5/8" x 3/4"
Condition: near perfect. The slight nick above the basal grinding could have happened by during binding.
Comments: Wheelers are a very rare paleo type. This piece has all the right confirmation for the point type including basal grinding and delicate paleo style flaking, plus the basal beveling at the bottom (front and back). It's by far my best paleo piece.
Price: $250.00

Type: Quad
Provenance: Kentucky
Material: nodular flint
Size: 2-1/4" x 1-1/8"
