Nice (24mm, 2.1g.) ancient Celtic ring money, ca. 800-500 BC
Nice patina, great condition, 24mm, 2.1g., bronze. Very attractive Celtic ring money.

We do not clean our rings - we sellthem as they come from hoards and after washing them with warm water toremove the adhering dust. Although they might look nicer while shiny,rings with removed patina (as many sold on ebay) are arguablyworthless, since it becomes impossible to authenticate it and proveits'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' age. Celtic ring money are my most favorite type ofartifacts/coins (I bought my first ring when I was a high schoolkid:-), and we have a huge inventory of authentic ring money. When youbuy from us, the authenticity of the rings and your satisfaction areguaranteed :)

Beforetheintroduction of struck coinage in Celtic lands, Celtic ringmoney(gold, silver and bronze rings), celtic arrowhead and bell moneywereused as currency in Celtic lands in Danube area, France, EnglandandIreland. Sometimes these rings took a pretty elaborate shape (suchas"wheel money" in Gaul, star-shaped rings, interlinked rings etc.)andare very interesting collectible items, that can also be usedaswonderful pendants or finger rings. An inexpensive way to touchthemagical Celtic past.
