I was told by moderators on arrowheads.com that these two I found in Guilford county NC are called stem points and from the Savannas and are are roughly 3-5K years old.  I cannot imagine finding something 10K years older.  The one on top is missing the point and the one on the bottom is missing a shoulder.

I'd like to see the points but it seems the graphic file is corrupted or did not load ?

^^^^^ Stem points. Did the moderators inform you that stem point design originated in Korea?

Thanks for the pic, several of the attachment ends are similar to paleo-Cherokee items I have, meaning the asymmetrical flaking for hafting where one side is more of an acute angle chipped out than the other for attachment to a shaft is similar in many of mine and with your two examples above.  I am wondering if the asymmetric nature of it was a survival design to leave more material so not as many discards/failures occurred?  I do not know enough about the historiography/archaeology of the differing cultures and points to say much more.

 

This has always been a curious element of many of the finds that I have.   I have no ability to take pictures of them now but will post them up when able to show the similarities to what you have there. 

 

I only have one large spear point with the top third of the point missing from the site I described above in my earlier post, it is a beautiful yellow quartz one. and I believe it has the asymmetric haft aft (not to be confused with half assed 🤓 ) .
