This reproduction of a Native American spear point was made by Gerald (Dink) Logan of Gilbertown, Alabama. This is a Dalton point from the late to transitional Paleolithic period and it is signed. The material is Tallahatta Quartzite. Quarries in the area where Dink Logan lives were so extensively exploited by Indians centuries ago that waste flakes are, in places, two to three feet deep. Tallahatta Quartzite is found in Choctaw and Clark Counties, Alabama and in Louderdale, Mississippi. Because it is brittle, the Quartzite is difficult to knap into points as long as this one. This point was purchased from Dink Logan in 1992. Length = 141 mm ; Weight = 42 gm
