    I picked these pieces up this evening while I was killing some time.
    Northern California.

    Thought this was a broken point at first, but now I'm thinking it could be a little drill or graver?

    A graver? Drill? Unfinished discard?

    I'd say the first one is a point with one ear broken off. The other looks like debitage or an expedient tool. Gary
    tomclark and Old Pueblo like this.

    Based on what I see, I would agree with Gary.

    The point looks like it suffered an impact fracture as well as losing one ear.

    Good eye finding those the one in questions almost looks like they were making a point very similar to your other find and maybe it broke or just didnít finish it the point on it looks worked
    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    The first one has a definate notch above the ear.
    The style seems different than any I've found.
    I can't find an example on google that has such long sharp ears with notches above.
    Am I looking at it wrong?
    Can anybody venture a guess as to the type?

    Definitely what Southfork and others above said! If you google it and search a little you will find that the bases and ears were made in made different shapes from concave, square, indented base, etc.

    Thanks for the information.
    Easy to let your imagination run away if you don't know a lot about this stuff.
