Notes

This stone was finely carved and polished to compliment the concentric natural banding of the slate stone. There is a 0.1 ridge carved at the spine on one side similar to AMNH DN/128. The stone has some abraded areas and was broken at the spine either because the stone is weakest at the thin surface of the spine or because it was intentionally broken at the spine as is common with bannerstones during the Archaic period. The two pieces of the stone were glued back together with a pitch-like substance, presumably in the 19th century. Both of the finely carved thin tips of the stone are broken; one side has been repaired. B.B. Kellogg and Conn. are written on the stone. 11528 is incised next to the perforation. Published in Knoblock (1939) Pl. 230, no. 4.
