"I agree with Alaa, my theory too is that the leather although very worn was later added with the coral and coins. The headdress  was purchased in the 60's however the silver work appears to be that date or maybe a bit older .. It is not a…"

Hi, thank you for your message. I had replied with a real long message, talking and talking about Mali and my experience.. there.. and then it made "shwupps" and all disappeared. I don't know why this always happens to me on this website. I am sorry, I need now a break and will answer tomorrow. I wrote a lot, and it is all gone.... Sorry, I will try tomorrow, when I am fresh and full of energy... With best regards, Eva
