TUAREG, BRACELET CURRENCIES, Niger

The Tuareg, nomads who travel all over the Sahara desert are primarily herders and traders. Skilled craftsmen made elegant forms from brass and silver metals. These brass forms were recognized and traded as currency, yet some were also used as bracelets. All are solid brass.

These have been vetted as authentic with signs of use.
