This arrow point is known as a "Jack's Reef" corner-notched point. It is common in the Middle Woodland era of coastal NH, from around 500 - 700 AD. It is distinctive because most are made from a mustard-yellow colored stone called jasper. Indians may have traded this material all the way from Pennsylvania.
