Necklaces of Old Time coins were a way of carrying and displaying one's wealth and prowess. Hunters such as Jorj Rainbowstar preferred pure silver coins since they were inherently more valuable. Others, such as the shaman Madyu, preferred those that were silvery on the sides but sandwiched copper. These, shaman agreed, were more magical. For one, no smith could duplicate such a sandwiching. For another, they had larger numbers than those that were silver. Shaman could not agree as to what it meant but all agreed it had magical significance.
