Primitive currency - Chamba - SOLD OUT

Barter and trade in African traditional culture

Currencies were used in transactions between individuals or tribes. They could also be used for individual purposes, to buy livestock, consumer goods or to serve as a dowry for a wedding. These coins were sometimes ornamented and passed on in the lineage.

Twisting work quite remarkable.
