Iron currency beginning of 1900
Made with a single piece of iron plate, by the Nkutshu smiths. It was considered the highest money unit and was a symbol of wealt and prestige.
It has the shape of a trowing knife, used in the Sankuru region. The conventual value of this Oshele allowed buying five slaves or a wife, that cost two woshele (plural of Oshele).
