British East Africa
Neck ring. Six fold coil of spring coiled copper wire forming flat circular band. Card says: Of a type assumed by the yound men when they are old enough to enter the class of warriors. This is some time after the last rites of circumcision and initiation, and depends on the father's decision, as does a youth's marriage also.
Purchased from Lawson S. Propst and William Wight
