KWELE, "Anchor" currency, Gabon


These Kwele forms have been vetted as authentic.

Numbers 6-11 are fairly evenly colored, uneven lighting makes the bottom look darker. The flanged points are all complete, there is some damage visible to the lower points.

Iron forms like these were recognized and used as currency.
