These catalogs represent examples of many types of 19th-20th Century metal currencies, including weapons, tools, musical instruments and jewelry used for barter and "non-functional" versions created to resemble these forms. For a broad examination of these objects, we recommend An Ethnographic Study of Traditional Money, by Charles Opitz.
