    Texas Dalton/meserve/golondrina/paisano

    I've Posted this point that my father found a couple months back, i received different types from the members on here.
    But the for sure thing i've gathered is that it has to be one of the few mentioned in the title above, the only distinct characteristics is that its serrated somewhat, it has "fluting" or a thinning flake and the remaining "ear" shows flaking.
    I've heard that daltons were removed from the haft for sharpening rather than the meserves being resharpend while still attached. The only thing i'm trying to figure out is to type this point once and for all. Thank you for your time.

As much as sportsmen go in pursuit of ducks, and gunners of musquash, and scholars of rare books, and travellers of adventures, and poets of ideas, and all men of money, I go in search of arrowheads when the proper season comes round again. So I help myself to live worthily, and loving my life as I should."

    Years ago I went on a point hunting trip with some friends on a ranch near Van Horn, Texas. There were a lot of this type found on that ranch. My friends said they were Paisano points. Note the lack of basal grinding and the heat treating. That's two things you would rarely see on a Dalton.

    I don't know Texas points, but there's one thing I do know and that is that there are alot of points out there that can't be definitively typed.
    Dang natives didn't reference their Overstreet whilst knapping.

    Good luck , hope you get your answer.

    It wont be Dalton, they dont occur this far west. Its not a Meserve. Im saying San Jose / Armijo cluster. Possibly Ventana Side Notched, or yes Paisano . All Mid Archaic . Those clusters are so close together its almost impossible to ID and its very frustrating. I have a bunch of the same style.

    Paisano for sure. Late Archaic and not Paleo.

    I am going with this answer also.
    I know just enough to know that I don't know what I think I know.
