HOLLOW BASE PROJECTILE POINT--EGYPT
This Hollow Base point is very skillfully made. It has very long delicate "ears" and fine pressure flaking along the edges. The surface is not weathered as most examples that have smoothed or polished surfaces. If it was placed with a burial in a tomb or grave, that would be one explanation for its lack of "desert polish". This spear point is made of a tan colored chert of good quality and measures 3 1/16 inches long. The depth of the base is 1 11/16 inches.
