    Thanks PA Eric. The material appears to have stacked during the making...but possibly left a piece that served another purpose.

    looks kinda like some of the ( pre forms or small knives) we find around here where you find san patrice points. I've got a few a found right where the san p's are. Some even have a apple bottom shaped base on bottom, not sure the purpose of that.
    Heck that may be a rap song " Apple bottom Base " lol
