Two utilitarian North Indian spearheads and a spear butt spike. Both spearheads have a faceted socket and a head attached by welding it to a triangular projection from the socket. The narrow head has a thickened armor-piercing style bodkin point. The wider bladed one has a more conventional tapering.

Most likely Rajasthani. Such unadorned pieces can be rather hard to date, but probably 18th-19th century.
