And we're shocked that you found such a tiny target, it's a beut. AND as small as it is, the quality of the flint really enhances it.
Scraper would seem to be purpose made for use like a spoke shave.
Could that bird be made from Alibates flint ? I had to go to the SW section of the Ovrsts to find anything that small listed.
Your point would have had a secure place in a good old posting..I'll bring it up, look for "POST YOUR SMALLEST POINT "
thank you sir, i believe it is alibates...alot of it up here...i'll post pics of the sandhills out here next time..it's surreal walking in these temp. camps out here in this terrain. I actually found something out here i shoulda kept and now regret...i've read a few accounts of indians crossing through rough country w/o water and in anti****tion for it kept small river rocks to suck on to salivate and keep mouth from gettin dry and swelling.. i found one out there (i presumed) as there are literally no rocks of any sort or type in these particular sandhills..all rock ive found is either burnt or flint flakes..thought id throw that out there and see if anyone has any more knowledge on the matter.
Ancient chewing gum sounds logical. No worse than a pile of rocks that paleontologists call gastrostones
( foraging dinos swallowed stones to help grind up food )
Did that Lubbock wind / sand storm do your search area any good ? ( or just cover it up ? ) Where ever all that sand came from, must have done some surfacers some good, some where
The WX satelite video of that particular storm was VERY impressive. looks like the top 1/2 inch of N Tx panhandle moved south. The panhandle surfacers are probably making finds of the points sitting up on little "toadstools " of dirt
