I went out the other night with the headlamp and found the smaller 4 3/8" inch point first. About 20 minutes later, out popped this 6 3/8" monster with just killer flaking and thinness. Too bad about the damage. It's the second longest point from the site--the longest is 7 1/4". I'd bet the same maker made them. If you look at the base, both have the tiny little flares at the end.
This area of the field has less total artifacts, but the quality and size has been better. I've found 8 or 9 really nicely made Sedalias and Sedalia Diggers that were broken that would've been really nice and long.
WOW , , , , , , Those are great finds, and all so thin! Real craftsmanship.
I looked up the Sedalia in the Overstreets' book from your area...they were really into big blades. !
And a Sedalia drill !!! did the original owner make that out of a blade that the point had snapped off ? Or worked it down from a 7 inch blade ?
