RETURN TO PAGE 1

   This Fan-Eared point is a classic example. It has a

needle point, recurved blade edges and deep notches

that form long narrow outward flaring barbs. It's also

nicely flaked on both sides and fairly thin. This point is

made of a beautiful piece of yellow chert of good quality

and measures 1 11/16 inches (4.3 cm) long and 1/8 inch
(2.3mm) thick.
