This Ekonda form has been vetted as authentic. It has puddling of the copper on the inside and variations in thickness.
Copper alloy forms like these were poured into a mold, then wrapped around a log to form a cylinder. They would be worn with vegetable fiber protecting the leg. They were recognized and used as currency.
