POINTS MADE BY
All of these points were made by Marvin McCormick and purchased from Marvin by Charley Shewey. Charley kept them in a small frame marked "Marvin McCormick" along with a letter from Marvin. These points show Marvin's unique flintknapping abilities at a time when very few people in the world were capable of doing this type of flake removal techniques. The four smaller points in the top row are examples of his famous Folsom points. The large point in the center has "Cochise" written on the other side which is closer to a Clovis but he might also have called it a Yuma. The two bottom points illustrate Marvin's pressure flaking abilities. The point on the left has very well done parallel oblique pressure flaking and fine edge retouch. All of these points are made of Alibates. The largest point measures 3 3/16 inches (8.1 cm) long.
