These three beads are from from Jambi, Indonesia, by river dredgers who find metal, porcelain, etc. I've bought lots of coins and metal objects, and two of these beads are on their way to me. All the metal objects are genuine, some dating to the Maritime Empires period of 9th-12th centuries, but wreck sites typically contain material from all eras. Can anyone tell if they are legitimate (not modern repros) and what period, place of origin? This region had extensive trade contacts with China, India, Malaya.
