28783 - ANSP Number
This object is a lithic and is 2 ½ inches long. Both the ANSP and loan numbers are visible, but dark and difficult to see. It is gray, irregular in shape, and narrows to a bulb with a small gouge around it. There are two main faces, but neither are flat. On one face, faint chisel marks appear in the form of thin, straight gouges running lengthwise. On the other face, there are three shallow pits in the base, and several other small divots.
