    Wanna buy a "Grey Ghost"?

    Found this on craigslist:

    I have a perfect 10 1/8" long Ceremonial TurkeyTail Arrowhead for sale.
    I was told it was made around 1200 AD?
    Ceremonial 10" Arrowhead - $4500 (Chillicothe,Ohio)

    Ceremonial 10" Arrowhead

    Gee only $4,500...and "Museum's would love to have it on display. "

    I would string this fleaBayer up by his artifacts, but I do feel Grey Ghosts can be a fun collectible.

    At what they are trying to swindle at that price... well my good sir I bid you a swirley, a noogie, and a wedgie.

    I sent him an email explaining that it's a Grey Ghost from the 1940's so let's see what he replies.

    I would bet probably denial...maybe you can send him this link from Lithics Casting Lab:

    Well here's the response I got back. Some people just don't have a clue, do they???

    Sorry Steve-but 2 museums here in Ohio are really wanting this piece after closely inspecting it.
    Their said it was made between 800 - 1200 AD. I know that it was found around
    Serpent Mound here in Southern Ohio 4 generations ago inwhich it was found in the mid 1800's.
    Kinda blows you theory- When you closely inspect it - it is awesome and authenic.

    I sent him another email with the Lithic Castings link and explained to that it wasn't a real Point no matter what a Museum said. I told him I wasn't trying to be mean or a jerk, but that I was just trying to educate him on what he had so maybe he finally got it.

    I also told him that if he did sell it to expect to get it back after the person who bought it had it authenticated and that any collector worth a grain of salt would know it's a Gray Ghost and only worth about $25 an inch or around $250. I tried to explain that they are still highly collectable by certain people though and he could probably sell it for around $250 to $300 if he pushed it as what it really is, a Gray Ghost.

    Like I told him, the Museum said it was 800 to 1200 AD in age and was a Turkeytail, which was wrong altogether, and that if it was actually real it would be considered a Dovetail and from around 8500 BC. So they obviously didn't know what they were talking about. I'm sure it will turn up somewhere else and most likely Ebay.
