MOUND 72 POINTS
These five Mound 72 points have been identified by Fowler as belonging to three different types. The point on the left is identified as a type III point that was found in cache number 1550. It's the only Agee point that was found in Mound 72. Perino reports that Agee points have been found in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana. The second point from the left is identified by Fowler as a type V point. He compares the bases of these points to Sequoyah points but the recurved blade edges are not at all similar to Sequoyah points. Only 14 of these unique forms of arrow points are reported to have been found in cache number 1550. The three points on the right are the longest triple-notched serrated Cahokia points in the collection of Mound 72 points. They are either in Fowler's type I or type VIII categories. Two of the points have large serrations that do not continue all the way to the point. The point on the right is made of Kaolin chert and measures 2 1/8 inches (5.4 cm) long.
