Hi folks,
Here's a possible Paleo piece. Doesnt resemble the snalpits, squibs, or Beeknans I've found. Also found a large nicly worked quartzite leaf knife or something else. Has a worked piece coming off like it was attached to something. Still very sharp.

Thanks for the peek

If one checks Boudreau, one of the 5 variants of Squibnocket Triangle are “narrow isosceles triangles with straight to excurvate edges”, such as seen here. But the presence of basal grinding, Squibnockets do not have grinding, might make it an earlier type.

Tried to capture the concavity on one side of the base bedt I could. A bit of Basel thinning.
Should have posted that in first segment.
