    Older point I found , but can't figure out the name

    I found this point November 2017. It is just over 3". Has some fluting, but very, very little basal grinding. Can anyone help me identify it?

    Great looking point but, sorry, no help in identifying what type.

    Either Haw Rivers and Wheelers hybridized, or their basal edges were pretty variable within the same general idea.

    Haw River Projectile Point
    Wheeler Triangular Projectile Point

    Bottom photos in both cases.

    Pretty item !

    Uniface, THANK-YOU! I did not know that site existed. I have it book marked it now. Seems like it might be a Wheeler...

    Kinda has a Dalton look to me, I don't think the other types were usually found in the show me state

    Yeah, the Wheeler's western region is about 300 miles from me. Is point just doesn't fit any of the Dalton chipping or style I've found or seen around here....

    I stomp the fields and creeks in Missouri and Kansas and if I found that, I would place it in my dalton frame.

    Don't go by the book ; go by the point. Books have been wrong.

    Like Uniface said looks a lot like the Haw River style point with the rounded in ears on base.
