    They did what they could

    These 2 points were found by me in North Alabama (1st 2 5/8 by 1 1/2. 2nd 2 7/8 by 1 1/8). I'll let my post title and pictures speak for these.

    I think the flint is Ft. Payne. Kind of tough to knap but good flint all in all. Gary

    Both were large and well made points in first stage. Hard material did not yield to massive resharpening very well though. As you said... They did what they could to maintain a functional edge without losing the spine of the point. Burinated edge could have been intentional on the second one or could have been from use damage.

    Personally, I enjoy artifacts like these. The tell a long story.

    Agree Todds, pretty common in North America and from what I've heard Tennessee (I never looked in Tennessee).

    Common only in the south east I'd say. Ft. Payne chert does not occur everywhere. Even as close as I am to it, I never see it here in east central Alabama.

    I've never found it in east central Alabama, very very little in South Alabama.

    Most likely the chert that those are made from is Flint River chert because there is an abundance of it in Albany and that is somewhat close to you and what Garscale said
