EKONDA,"Anklet" Currency, DRC

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.

These Ekonda forms have been vetted as authentic. They all have puddling of the copper on the inside and variations in thickness.
