20th century - Good condition

Authentic and rare small Katanga cross from Congo.
Made of copper that has discoloured by oxidation.

These crosses were used as money until early 1900.
They were originally introduced by the Portuguese in the 18th century who used them as exchange for merchandise and slaves.

This is a very fine specimen that should have its place in a collection of African money.

Dimensions: 7 x 3 x 0.5 cm.
Weight: 30 grams.

Comes without stand.

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    The customer complained...for overcrowding of shipping. For Italy, the shipping is 32,80 Euro. To do a favor to the customer , I paid 10 Euro myself..Are there more sellers who who do the same like me ?. the buyer told me too that there is ....lack of an illustration card of the currency.......As the object has been found before 1900, by somebody of my family, in Congo...it s impossible for me to give an illustration. There was a very good explanation of the item given by an expert, who is specialised in African primitive money.
    I cannot give the customer the butter and the cream of the butter. If a customer is not happy with the item, ...I always propose him by mail to send back the item and to pay him back. Until now, it never happened.
    I am a fair and honest dealer.
    I can only tell....look to the stars and not to your feet !!!!
