Hey alright! Although the smudging did seem to make a difference even if it's only in my head! I know a lot of Indians won't touch an arrowhead till it's been cleansed and I surely don't want no bad JUJU!! Thanx for the info Bud!!

Looks like Early Triangular. Yes that's a type. Very nicely made 9,000 year old artifact. Not sure on usual but maybe jasper. Good close pics of both sides might help me Id material. Good find.

Garguy thanks for the reply, I think I can speak for everyone and we appreciate your wisdom and readiness to share it.

We there was supposed to be a couple of close up pics of that point in my reply but I wasn’t able to attach them for some reason. I tried to zoom in and screen shot them, maybe that’s the problem. I’ll take some tomorrow outside. Thanks again.

What significance did having one of the rear points being shorter than the opposite serve?

They were not made that way. Likely hafted on a bone handle and that side got used the most thus resharpened more.

It has been resharpened so many times that it is hard to guess what it was. The base indicates that it is probably early archaic but still a bit of a guess. 7000yrs old give or take.

Both of those are a little hard to type from just one pic. I would need them inhand to be really confident. I suspect both fall in a poorly defined group called Early Stemmed. Roughly 8,000 yrs old.

All ES points have edge dulling/grinding on the stem edges. If those are not ground they would fall into a couple of late archaic types like Yarborough.

Top is a really nice Angostura.

Bottom is beautiful and I presume it's a pedernales. Hard to say without scale.. beautiful material.

Dukfvr that sure looks like a hide scraper. What does the other side look like?

On second look I do see the other side. It's about the right size for a scraper but I can see it being a preform too as the others have suggested. Any time I find a scraper I assume there's a camp nearby.

Flaking looks more jetta but stem is short. One of the reasons I asked for better pics . I gotta stick with pedernales unless better pics show something diagnostic. I do see what you are looking at though. The flaking hints it might be older.

Ok, I just saw the better pics. Looks like the base may have been damaged on both corners. They could have drooped enough for Jetta. That flaking is fancy.
