Rare large ancient Celtic ring money with notches, ca. 800-500 BC

Rare large ancient Celtic ring money with notches, ca. 800-500 BC
Greenish patina, great condition, 32mm. Four double-notches on one side and a number on notches on reverse. Very rare - the only such example we've encountered. Very attractive and rare.

We do not clean our rings - we sell them as they come from hoards and after washing them with warm water to remove the adhering dust. Although they might look nicer while shiny, rings with removed patina (as many sold on ebay) are arguably worthless, since it becomes impossible to authenticate it and prove its' age. Celtic ring money are my most favorite type of artifacts/coins (I bought my first ring when I was a high school kid :-), and we have a huge inventory of authentic ring money. When you buy from us, the authenticity of the rings and your satisfaction are guaranteed :)

Before the introduction of struck coinage in Celtic lands, Celtic ring money (gold, silver and bronze rings), celtic arrowhead and bell money were used as currency in Celtic lands in Danube area, France, England and Ireland. Sometimes these rings took a pretty elaborate shape (such as "wheel money" in Gaul, star-shaped rings, interlinked rings etc.) and are very interesting collectible items, that can also be used as wonderful pendants or finger rings. An inexpensive way to touch the magical Celtic past.
