My guess is that the base notch is way too deep for a Plainview. It's a true golden oldie.
That is beautiful flint. We know the ancients tried to test knap everything to see if it was usable, like petrified wood, fossilised coral and obsidion....I wonder if someone somewhere might have found a knapped tool out of true Dinosaur Bone... ? I've got some pieces of dino bone from the NW..
So unique It's sold for making jewelry
I don't think it is a perd... It came from a site that has a lot of paleo stuff. It Is ground pretty good and the base is a lot wider than the perds found in the area. If it was a perd it would have been 2" wide with the wings.
I'm looking at Dr H's book....All examples of Barbers are as deeply based as your find. Barbers are generally considered rare and The Doctors range
map shows why, VERY limited area of South Central TX.
Dont be upset by Ida's wild guestimate...He does that sometimes when his own weekend finds are not as interesting
Overstreet says that the ears should curve slightly inward at he end of the ear. Looking at the pic's of Barbers in the book compared to the point in question brings me to the conclusion that the point is a Plainview.
