    CONERLY

    I don't think I ever posted this little point. It is from my pasture collection" courtesy of my horses. It reminds me of a feather. It has a definte twist and oblique transverse flaking. The back still has some cortex on it I think. I'm not sure if the twist was intentional or had a specific purpose. After really reading up on the specifics it seems to me to have the characteristics of a conerly. Love to hear your ideas and information!

    We're about 250 miles to the northwest of where the distribution area is most concentrated. Overstreet includes Conerly in Florida and Tennessee. I've just recently purchased the Overstreet guide and don't know how reliable it is as far as distribution goes. It has some characteristics of a Guiliford. The base matches the illustration for lobed in Overstreet, which if correct makes it extra challenging to indentify. As does the majority oblique transverse flaking. Hmmmmm.....
    It would be so much easier if they would have just engraved the type on each one when they made them lol!

    I need to learn more about the difference in a projectile point and a knife. I don't recognize what would be a knife except in this knife which is really really obvious. In fact, I actually use this knife all the time to cut hay string and other things around the farm. It was a personal find given as a gift to me from my daughter's fiancÚ. Do knives have a typology or specific names like a projectile point? I'm going to be on this learning curve a long, long time I think lol!

    Lol! You want to say more...it's ok. I'm just guessing on the type. My feelings will not be hurt in the least

    I have nothing more to say because I have nothing to add of value. I am noticing that with identifying (with some exeptions) most are just best guesses.

    I have a book about stuff out west and "types" and a lot of what I have, and what I have seen aren't really any type specifically, but a rock made into a point because of what made the most sense to the maker.

    The shape and the material looks Conerly, but the flaking and the rough material near point don't look like any I have seen. The material could have came from the coastal plains of Georgia. There is not much difference in a knife and a dart point but the knife gets re sharpened like yours and the dart point is not usually sharpened that much.

    Guilford is possible we do find them in this area. Id say more Guilford than Mac Corkel which was my 2nd guess. I think I have a couple Guilfords I have found but like you Im just not sure.

    Those look much, much larger than this little point or knife. This also has a more elliptical cross section than flattened. I honestly don't know how anyone ever knows what the typology really is. There are so many similar characteristics in so many of the types. I think I need to learn more about what makes a point belong to a particular time period than what the name of it is. Now if I could just find a clovis I think that flute would just give it away lol! Thank you for helping me learn more about these
