Been routing through the collection again and found some more spear heads which I need help identifying.

I think that both are from Indonesia, most probable from Java. Clean them from rust with pinapple juice (pure, without sugar) or lemon acid, maybe after this is to seen more (pamor/lamination). When I am correct this are tombaks.

Regards,

Thanks for your response Sajen. I will have a go at cleaning them in the next few days and post the results.
