Celtic Proto Ring Money, Bracelet with Multiple Knobs, c. 600-400 BC

Copper alloy; 50mm/13.6gm; dark brown patina, semi-cleaned, not waxed.

Seller's Note/ Such 'proto money' was used as a trading commodity (currency) before the introduction of struck coins in the Eastern Danube region and the Black sea area by the Celtic tribes and were marketed by their weight. The most common types were simple round rings, while others had a few knobs or lugs that were worn as beads or jewelry in one manner or another.

This bracelet features what appears to be grape clusters (?) about the circumference. Extremely Rare, this bracelet was ground found in a Celtic settlement south of the River Drava.

Very rare and museum quality.
