    Thin Litle Paleo. Alibates In East tx?

    I found this super thin little blade/point thursday on the Brazos. Its base ground and basal thinned on one side. It is micro flaked and some thinning on the other side but was made on a flake. Paper thin. It looks like Alibates to me. Im certainly no Alibates expert and asking for opinions on it. Also on what it may be? It looks like it has a tiny bit of the rounded tip broken off.

    its a cutie regardless.

    Looks more like the ground base would have been a backed edge (mini knife). Started out as a biface reduction flake ; one edge on reverse retouched to resharpen it. Primo flint must have been scarce there (?)

    My best guess dos centavos.

    It may have started out as a channel flake.

    Looks like PW agate to me.

    I have to ask... Is it ancient or just another one of your corny pranks?

    Petrified wood comes in many colors. I find points that color in East Texas from time to time.
