This dart point was recovered from the Mallow site, an archeological site in Doniphan County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The point is made of a banded Permian chert and has a slightly expanding stem. Dart points would be mounted to the dart foreshaft, which would in turn be connected to the dart shaft. The assembled dart would then be thrown with an atlatl (spearthrower).
