Only One Available: This is a Transitional Archaic Ensor Split Base point. Up to 2,200 BC.
This is a thin medium to large triangular corner notch point with a flattened cross section. The blade may vary from excurvate to straight. Re-sharpened examples may have an incurvate or recurvate blade. The shoulders are primarily barbed, but may take on a horizontal appearance especially in re-sharpened examples. The stem is broad, expanding and usually the same width as the shoulders. The base may vary from having a bifurcated form or V notch to having a center basal notch. This point has a random flaking pattern.
This point is primarily found in from central Texas into the Lower Pecos River valley and throughout the Guadalupe River valley. This point is found with diminished frequency into the Sabine River Valley of eastern Texas and western Louisiana and into Arkansas and Oklahoma. Frequency diminishes into southern Tamaulipas.
The point has great patina. The tip and one of the shoulders has broken off. Otherwise a very nice point. Measures 1.25" from base to tip.
