    unfluted clovis

    We gotta gullywasher, So I headed out back to hunt the banks of the creek while the creek was still running hard and it paid off! A local collecter that held it claims its a unfluted clovis and wanted it....but we couldnt agree on a price so Im keeping it for awhile. the camera does this blade no justice at all. its sweet! I at first thought it looked diffrent from my usual AB's its thin, good grinding, and some fine lateral flaking . it has a tiny flea bite on the very corner of one side of the base, other than that its good.

    Congratulations Charlie! That's a really nice find. Very well made too. What made the local collector think that it's an unfluted Clovis?

    With that basal grinding I think Ango is the right call. Very nice. If he's offering $400 or more I'd consider letting it go. Unless you are set on keeping it, of course.

    My answer would be no ...not Clovis.

    By the appearance of the base I can see where some are calling it an Ango, however from the picture I do not see any oblique flaking ...an Ango attribute.

    Kind of a tweener between Ango and AB.

    A second look:
    Upon looking at the pictures again it appears there could be some oblique flaking so perhaps it is an Angostura.
    I would like to see the flaking on the other side (looking down at the surface).
