EKONDA,"ANKLET" CURRENCY, DRC

They all have puddling of the copper on the inside and variations in thickness.

Copper alloy forms like these were poured into a mold, then wrapped around a log to form a cylinder. They would be worn with vegetable fiber protecting the leg. They were recognized and used as currency.
