I found this short article on the Paleo End Scraper to be some interesting reading:
www.ele.net/pes/discript.htm
Ever since I read this article I have been watching for an end scraper with spurs on
the corners of the distal end. The one I bought was found in Lincoln Co. Kentucky.

This end scraper is a bit larger than most of the end scrapers I have. It measures
1 5/8 inch long, 1 9/16 inch across the spurs, and 7/16 inch thick in the center of
the distal end. The right side spur was broken but part of it remains.

Great piece! :ohmy: :woohoo: That article should be saved by everyone, about the PES. :kiss:
Very few I have found on Paleo sites have two graver/spurs. Usually the only have one.

Great example, Ron, and I agree with Tom. I went to the introductory page of the article by Tony Baker and posted it to the info center in "Other tools...". You can link to Baker's home page, which is also an excellent resource in general. Will have to find a place in the Info Center for his home page as well. Good stuff! Great link, Ron!

I took a close look at my thump scrapers and found 2 more.
The first one is from Central Indiana.
The second is Knife River Flint from North Dakota.

This Scraper was found in Lincoln County Kentucky. This is obviously a different style scraper.
Does the graver/spur on this scraper mean that it is Paleo? I'm not trying to confuse the issue
Just trying to learn something. I sure would appreciate some opinions on this one.
