Kramer Point

Chapman (1980) does not include Steuben points in his discussion of selected projectile points found in Missouri; examples of Kramer points have been discovered in Northeast and Northwest Missouri. Perino (1972:44-45) cites measurements by Munson from the Sheets site; Length = 41 to 61 mm with an average of 49 mm. DeRegnaucourt (1991:74 - 78) does not discuss this point type in his review of finds from Ohio and Indiana. Morrow (1984:49) observed that Kramer points are common in Eastern Iowa and he associates them with the Early Woodland Period (from 1000 to 500 BC).
