(see photos).   It has a good symmetry and shape.  It has very fine edge work all up and down the blade edges. (see photos).  One barb is slightly higher than the other.  It has a couple of "chigger bites" on one blade edge and there is a small ding to one barb.  (see photos)  This Typology is hard to find.  Here is a good example.  This Piece is from the John Gibson Collection of Madison County, KY.  John has been an avid hunter and collector of Prehistoric Artifacts for many years.  He is a good friend and one of the founding members of the Appalachian Foothills Artifact Collectors Association.  Ex- Pete Smith Collection, Ex- John Gibson Collection, Ex- Monty & Jewdy Pennington
