The two points together look finished. The three together are unfinished preforms. I’m not sure about Copenas, they are not found in my area.
Most Copena types I find have a stack on one side and thinned down on the other side. Probably used as knives would be my guess.
Copena is in a small section mainly TN but does come to my area

The 3 in the last picture could be preforms. All are awesome 👌
I found the 3 all together so even if they are preforms they will still be a Cashe. I found a quartz one to but it’s in a different frame. Some of the old timers call them Nipple Points due to the stack on one side being left on. Thanks

No idea on types down there but the pentagonal one seems like it’s something else, would a jacks reef pentagonal reach down there?
I’m not sure which one you are referring too but I think we ha Reefs here.

the first and second image relic on the left looks like a hells gap.

the other may be a copena, but does not have the profile as defined in the type. they could be other triangular type. in my opinion.

I agree. Both look to be not in the books for my area. I guess I should take them and let them be looked at next show.
