Today’s animation is a Jack’s Reef Pentagonal point scanned at the New York State Museum (NYSM) in July 2014. A photograph of this point can be found as the fourth point in Plate 12 on page 80 of William A. Ritchie’s (1971) ” A Typology of and Nomenclature for New York Projectile Points,” New York State Museum Bulletin Number 384.This point, as well as others from Ritchie’s (1971) monograph, were scanned to aid in the creation of a digital projectile point typology funded by the Department of Defense’s Legacy Program, as detailed here.
