See M 6975 in dis-associated objects from Chartham Down as a possible canidate for this spearhead, though the gatty slip sketch for M 6975 does not match the drawing in the MS Diary and the Inventorium Sepulchrale of the Grave 39 spearhead. Also, the dimensions are not exact, though M 6975 is 3/4 inches shorter perhaps because it has been \knocked about\". Cf. also Sp.U.1 listed with the Unknown Provenance material. SCH also thought that Sp.U.44 (unknown provenance) was a similar shape. – D.H."
