The specimen is lanceolate and symmetrical in outline with very narrow width in relation to length. The projectile point has parallel overlapped flaking. Basal thinning was accomplished through the removal of a single long channel flake from one face and two channel flakes from the opposite face. Edges along the base and basal lateral margins were moderately polished to facilitate hafting.
