    I personally don't think you could put a monetary value on something like that. I mean, what would you compare it to?

    So these were for the slaves? Why are they so rare? Not every slave had them on their knecks?

    At the time they were not considered very valuable after the sale of a slave, thus they were discarded and very few survive. Certian types are very rare. There are just not many of them out there. Many old gold coins are out there but the 1933 US Gold Eagle is arguably the most expensive, more than 8 million being paid for one at auction. Now a 1932 version of the same coin is worth a pittance compared to the 1933 version. Why? Well FDR had all of the 1933 versions melted down before they were released when he made private holding of Gold illegal 1n 1932. The coins that did get out had to be stolen from the mint by workers. That makes the 1933 extremely rare!! Slave tags were not considered valuable at the time they were used so they were thrown away like the price tag on your new shirt. They are a rare pieace to find now and that makes them very valuable. Rarity always breeds value!!
    I hope that answers your question.

    PS: Never let anyone sell you a 1934 Gold Eagle!!
