    Charlie, thatís a fine example! Size is consistent with the one I posted. The shape is somewhat different. More Bar-Shaped.

    So that one was Reed-Drilled?

    I have attached a link to a copy of the April 1988, A Bulletin of the M.A.S, which has photos of a few examples of a similar Barrel Shaped type AtlAtl Weight from The Hathaway Site. Notice that each in the small sample given has a flat side.

    A friend of mine found a finished example which had the same form as yours, and it was fluted on the flat side.

    Yes, I believe so. I don’t know much about this class of artifact, never found any. I did find two tie-on atlatl weights at an Early Archaic site we walked for years.
