Paste/Temper: Coe described only crushed quartz as temper, but in Virginia rounded river sand from 2 to 5 mm in diameter is more common.
Surface Treatment: The whole exterior surface was malleated with a grooved paddle or a paddle wrapped with a non-twisted thong. A smoothed-over simple-stamped variant has been indentified at a number of sites in the Interior Coastal Plain, including 44SX0198 (see photos of sherds & profile). This variant is probably later within the historic period
