This fluted point is reported to have been found in
Tennessee. Other than that, very little is known about
its history. It is a style of fluted point that occurs in
states east of the Mississippi River and can be found
in the same states that Cumberland and Barnes points
are found. This style of fluted point is much thinner than
the more heavy duty Cumberland and Barnes points
and in this respect they are closer to Folsom and Crowfield
points. One side of this point is double fluted to the tip.
The other side is also double fluted but only half and three
quarters of its length. This point reflects a Paleo craftsmen's
knowledge and skill of fluting that is difficult to replicate
today. This point measures 3 7/8 inches (9.8cm) long, 1 1/8
inches (2.8cm) wide and 1/4 inch (6mm) thick.
