This example was sent to Occpaleo for molding and casting in 2019.   The Simpson point is a Late Paleoindian projectile point that dates to around 10 to 11,000 years ago.    It is found in the Southeast coastal areas, from the Carolinas to the southern tip of Florida.   This particular example was made in Dover Chert, and was found in southern Alabama.    It measures 75mm long and 22mm wide.   It looks as though it was used and resharpened but survived with a wonderful history.   The type was first officially named by Ripley Bullen of the Florida Museum of Natural History in 1968.  (cast copyright Occpaleo 2019)
