2974-2017) Incised  and Stylized Boat stone made of a semi porous mega patinated and mineralized silicious (sandstone) limestone. This specimen measures approx 2 3/8" x 2" x 1 3/8" and has been extensively carved by it's prehistoric maker. The cross motif is interesting in that this has been observed in later Mississippian shell gorgets and other objects. It is in very good condition and is museum caliber due to workmanship and rarity, G9+ Quality. Was found on private property located in Christian County, Kentucky. Jerry Dickey issued a COA and provided this description in his evaluation: "A cerermonial type, boat shaped, item that may or may not be drilled at the ends. They appear to be present in the Terminal Archaic and Early Woodland periods and may continue in the Middle Woodland periods", x Kadeem Simon Collection. $700

It has a full flute to the tip on the ventral face with Enterline fluting strikes, on the dorsal face it is unfluted but shows an remnant flute that leads me to believe that this point was possibly salvaged from a broken remnant of a larger fluted point then anciently rebased. It is very well patinated and mineralized with a rich waxy luster. In terms of condition very good, G6 Quality, no brainer ancient authentic.
