Are these Arrowheads Real?

    I know these aren’t quite ancient coins, but I thought that they are pretty ancient coin adjacent!I was looking through some ancient arrowheads, and these three caught my eye. I am quite suspicious about them, but am unsure if I am being overly cautious as it is a subject I am not terribly used to. I did not buy them yet, but may if I become sure they are real. I thought I’d ask y'all. What do you think? Are they real or just modern fakes?

    Arrow head A looks like one I bought from Scott Semans about 44 years ago.

    I would say that they're real. A few decades ago I bought several of these for $9 each, but I guess prices have gone up since then. They're fairly plentiful.

    Not quite sure as to the "ancient" aspect, how old are they expected to be? The reason I ask is the rather newish metal work and what appears to be some material that looks like glue of some type. not saying the aren't.....but suspicious Jim

    Yes, that is how I feel as well. I believe they are B and C are supposed to be Sythian, so their good condition could be explained by the dry Iranian environment they likely stayed in, but arrowhead A, which is also supposedly ancient, feels off.

    Hello Group,
    My 2¢:
    The only 100% proof that an arrowhead is real, is to dig it yourself!

    Poison=human feces add also that that particular type of arrowhead was designed to pierce plate or chain armor called a "bodkin" or "bodkin point" nasty nasty early tech :D (side note B and C are both bodkin types)
