Size:  21.2 KB This point was found in Northeastern South Dakota in the 1950's I purchased from a guy at a flea market in Brookings. Just wondering what you think on type? Looks like a nice piece. I hope its a Scottsbluff but not sure. Thanks.

    Im no expert but I don't think Scotty. I cant see the flaking well but I do see some flat spots on the blade and the flaking looks somewhat random. Once again, Im no expert but I rarely see flat spots on Scotty blades. they generally are parallel flaked to a median ridge.

    Alberta, but after reviewing several Scottys namely the one inn Overstreets 11th edition page 989 top for a Scotty with as many flat spots as Texas. But Im thinking Alberta because the weak shoulders give it away however the stem is a tad short for an Alberta but I have seen them almost exactly like this point. And FYI there are plenty Cody Complex points with flat spots, especially in the north. You have to remember not everybody was an artisan. Would like to see a cross section though.

    Any questions about pieces need to go in this forum, the What In The World forum.

    Thank you.

    It could also be a Kramer or any number of stemmed Archaic points.

    To get a good opinion from members it would be best to have good clear pictures.
    Try natural lighting out side and set your camera to macro without the flash.
    Typology from pictures is tough. Best to provide a scale, picture of cross section,,and perhaps one with a little angle to show flaking. Also plz. Take note of the sticky notes at the heading of each section when posting. Moderators work hard to keep the site organized and managed.

    Ok I will take more pictures and post tonight. It's not as flat as it appears.
    Could anyone please identify the material. I always thought Burlington chert but it's from South Dakota Minnesota North Dakota border.

    I apologize mods.
