  • Triple T’ or a Humboldt variant or? Far West Point

    This is an interesting Obsidian point. Found in the late 60s. Extreme North western Nevada. Point is completely worked on both sides. It’s one of those that’s hard to nail down as it has attributes of several types. Looks Triple T’ to Me or maybe a Humboldt variant. Kinda has a little Paleo thing going on, but I think the knapper took advantage of the slight concavity of the material on the reverse side.

      Triple T’ is listed in the Overstreet guide. It’s a Humboldt Variant. Thought to be a very early type in the Humboldt Series/Cluster

    There are several variants in the Humboldt cluster which I believe Triple T is also. I'm a lumper so I usually just stick to calling them Humboldts unless its a real radical eared one that I'll call a Buchannan Eared.

      That's a sweet point.

      So much to like about it.

      I like the curve to it. It's very nicely made. Concave base.

      There's a little peak in middle that's cute as can be.

      General vibe is top shelf artifact.

      ​​​​​​​Thanks for showing it.

        Tomf. Thanks appreciate it . It’s quite an unusual and interesting point. It’s the only Humboldt Triple T’ Variant in my collection. Sometime when I get chance. Think I’ll pull a bunch of the Humboldt Variants and do a Pic post

        Whatever you end up calling it, it's a cool point. Always enjoy finding a point made from a good sized flake.
