Hello Ben,

Wow, that's also a very nice amulet!

Does the plate show any typical Dayak motifs?

Regards,
Kai

Hello Ben,

Congrats, you really get the nicest toys!

Too large for coins AFAIK. Probably some other gadget which found its way into Dayak hands?

Any clues on ethnic/geographic origin?


BTW, did you get my email/PM some weeks ago?

Regards,
Kai

If there is a hole in the center of the brass plate it could maybe be a flattened opium pipe fitting?

Ben,

This mandau is no longer for auction than ?
Pictures look your work and not the seller that was offering it last week.

Best regards,
Willem
