If you expand that to Gold and Silver then the Inca and the various Mezo-Americans had enormous metalworking skills.

comment When and how did the idea of a “class-less” society originate in the United States?
I've heard the term floated here and there so someone is using it to describe the U.S. I agree that there are social classes in the U.S., often very distinctly divided. However, I'm interested in how the idea that the U.S. somehow doesn't have classes came about.
