These points have been called "gray ghosts, by collectors of stone artifacts in the US for many years. They were named for and made from gray Edwards chert from Texas. These modern-made "spears" have caused quite a lot of confusion for more than half a century. The buying public has had a "devil" of a time identifying them as either old or new. In fact, they have become a sort of modern legend. The first ones were produced in Bryan Reinhardt's "flint spear" factory sometime in the 1940's. "Gray ghosts" are large modern-made "flint spears" that were made during the 40's, 50's, 60's and early 70's. "Gray ghosts" are scary only when the people that purchase or inherit them, believe they have ancient artifacts of great value. But they're actually nice examples of one man's modern flintknapping art. Each one is a little different and unique. True "gray ghosts" are credited to Bryan Reinhardt because he made so many more than anyone else. He passed away in about 1982, by some reports, of silicosis of the lungs. He sold them by the case of 144 and must have made a great many thousands of them.
