My fossil buddy has been at a site in Wyoming Dino digging off and on all summer. He gave me this from one of his trips. I'm not too familiar with western stuff but it looks like a Cody type. Shame it's damaged.

That was my first impression Cody, but I’m not well versed with Cody stuff so I’d call it mostly a hunch. Is the bottom right corner damaged?

Take a look at the flaking patterns of a few in the above link. Plainview's are contemporaneous w/Angostura and many others sharing common characteristics. Wyoming is well within their distribution range.

Plainview/Goshen projectiles certainly are in Wyoming. However, as I said, I have not seen an obliquely flaked example from the Northern High Plains. In the southern Plains I have seen examples the people down there call Plainviews which are obliquely flaked but then again “Plainview” tends to be a catch-all for a hodge podge of points. The page you directed me to is a great example of, “if not sure what it is, call it a Plainview”.
