"Once in a Life-Time Discovery" Arctic Fluted Clovis end blade. Discovered on a ridge above the American River, Alaska. A chance find with a collection of chips and broken blades used and / discarded by ancient Mammoth hunters. The high point ridge area was an ideal observation post for these ancient hunters to view the distance for approaching mammoths. This fluted spear blade was left behind and on the surface when discovered. Note; the blade has lichen growth along it's surface.
