Hi to all

A question perhaps foolish.

Are these rings of bronze classifiable like Celtic Ring money?

Thank

The only classification that I know are descriptive e.g.  metal (gold, silver, bronze) and the number of knobs on the ring.  While yours is smooth, many have knobs which was probably an indication of relative value.  I'll attach some examples.

Andrew, it looks like a good deal to me. If you can win this for $10, that means about $3 for 1 piece. I must say, many celtic coin collectors and pro's (like Chris Rudd from UK) do suggest that those rings aren't in fact money, but that they are cult objects instead.
So there are different opinons about it. But one way or the other, for $10 you could own a marvellous piece of ancient european history.

Hello Andrew,
good job Wink.
It's a bargain for that price.
I deleted the link to ebay, you know Wink.
Congrats,

The 'knobby' rings and spoked wheels seem all to come from Gaul. The plain rings are more often found in present day Belgium and Southern Netherlands. As far as I know they don't occur in Germany. Decorated rouelles are nearly always cast, the heavy rings too, but the small rings were cut out of copper plate.
