  • Missouri surface find...small tool question

    I found this in west central Missouri. Could it be a broken point that was reworked into a drill and then wore down to a nub or could it have been a scribe or perforator? When I found it I didn't think much of it...I thought that it was a broken point, but after cleaning it up a bit it's got me wondering if it wasn't used as some kind of small tool. Any help would be greatly appreciated...I apologize for pic quality. Thanks, Tim

    Yeah likely an exhausted point/knife that was worked into a specialized tool such as a perforator or graver. Those are always cool finds and we see them from all time periods from Paleo they Historic. Thanks for sharing!

      Nice little point that was reworked down to a nub. Special because it saw more action than some.
