Merrell Point is Now a New Typed Point - Thanks Dr. Hester - Attn. Tehuacana
I've been wondering how long it would take to have the Merrell Point typed & included in a point reference. Well, the time has come as the latest "Stone Artifacts of Texas Indians" has it referenced on page 134 as an Early Archaic point that is associated to the Late Archic Frio & is also has the associated technology & temporally related to that of the Martindale point.
Thanks to Tehuacana for gifting me a set of this newly discovered type a few years ago when we mused about the possibility of it becoming an authentic point. I haven't checked Overstreet to see if they're on board with the new type & if so, I wonder what the value is of a better than average specimum?
I's also like to get the book at least autographed by Dr. Hester & if his associates are available to do the same, I'd be thrilled.

Anytime Chuck. Sorry the mail was so slow. It took, what? three months to go from Pearsall to Austin? A 2 hour drive. Good old postal service, always dependable, even if a little slow.
You should be able to email him for getting your book signed. We'd gone to one of the signings in SA and got three copies signed by Dr. Hester, Turner, and the other two contributor/Authors. One, we donated to Digfest. Might be lucky enough to win that one as a door prize if your going.
