comment How did shells, bones, and other trinkets work as currency?
Thank you. But this appears to largely be well-informed conjecture (primarily on why shells could work as currency). Do we know, for example, how Native American tribes used shells as currency? How rare were the shells used? Who decided such matters or was it completely arbitrary? I'm interested in how the economy worked using shells as currency.

Genghis Khan's birth name of Temujin (as those of his brothers, Temülin and Temüge) is derived from temür meaning iron. The name "indicated an implied lineage in a family once known as blacksmiths".
