Ave!

Copper alloy; 50mm/13.6gm

My first thought was that this was a bronze age Celtic bracelet...perhaps for a child? But now, after seeing the examples here on Forum, I'm thinking that it may be ring money.

Thoughts, anyone?

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

This is so-called "Celtic ring money" , no one has proved that this is money....
I have several type and size of this between, 2cm to 8 cm diameter...and different thickness and a different number of "cams" on it...   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Ave!

Excellent and thanks for the confirmation, my friend.

Here's another 'ring money' that arrived here the other day.

Copper alloy; 21mm/4.7gm

Quadrans, I need learn how you take such stunning photos!

Your jealous amigo,

Kevin

Like quadrant said, no one has proved that this was money.  I think things like hair ornaments and harness ornaments are much more likely.

See this excellent informational site:
