Point Variety

Here is a pic that shows several different point styles. We could probably argue over the types, but what do you think they are? They represent a lot of different types.

The Arredondo is the only arrowhead my grandmother ever found. Her grandmother died on the Trail of Tears and her mother lived on the reservation in Oklahoma until she was old enough to leave.

This is a play along game with no losers. What you got? A hint, none of these have ground bases.

What would you call the center point, top row?
 
I'm not very knowledgeable on deep-south points, but here's my take:

Top row: early Archaic side/corner-notched points. The right one looks like a classic Palmer, but they usually have ground bases.

Middle Row-Mid-Archaic stemmed points, except the left one has an early Kirk look to it.

Bottom row: Early Woodland point, two unfinished preforms.

That's pretty good. I'm calling the top left a Greenbriar.

First row, I'd say Greenbriar, Boggy II, worn down Wascissa
2nd row, I'd say Taylor, a Bolen variety, Arredondo
3rd row, I'd say Tallahassee, Woodland preform, Sumter.

On the Tallahassee, it's raw material. Maybe it wasn't finished, but later people wouldn't go through the trouble of working raw material.
