    Possible scraper?

    I found these a few days ago in a cotton field. The black piece caught my eye. Upon examining it, I guessed it to be a small hafted scraper. Am I correct? Northeast Arkansas

    From your pics, 1) it looks like the base of a broken point and 2) whether the distal end was worked after it broke; I can not determine.

    From the pic it looks to me like the smaller tan piece is a hafted scraper. Kinda looks like an adena type point in which the end broke off and they re-sharpened it into a scraper.
