    Jacks reef pentagonal?

    This point is certainly pentagonal but is it a jacks reef if not what is it? I would guess this is from the same time period as hamiltons and other woodland points, can anyone tell me anything else about it? It is a personal find from middle Tennessee. I found all the points in the frame from the same site .Click image for larger version.

    I agree it's a Jack's Reef. Great find. One of my favorite types. Only ever found one personally. Nice work.

    Nice find it does look like a jacks reef and maybe that is how a lot of them looked originally with the longer tips. I imagine they probably would have broke easily and than just resharpened a new tip. The other point sure looks Clovis is the other side fluted too? did you create a post when you found that one? May generate more responses and I know I'd love to see some pics of it 🏻

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Without the base, there is no way to confirm if it is jacks reef. The base is 99% of what can Identify a piece on a fragment like this.

    I'm pretty sure that point is intact base and all . It looks ground and made that way.
