I am pretty sure that the caps are not period to the beads. In the mix was also an old sandcast beads that was capped in the same manner, so most likely this was done in Mauritania.

My favorites would be the one, second row from outside, at 10 o´clock (because of the unusual brown/brick red...) and the five beads in center with these unusual eyes...:-)
During my early time buying beads in Morocco I found one or the other single bead from the islamic era between all the venetians...nowadays I have to take care of new Chinese or Indonesian Millefiori...

Thanks Uwe, I also really like the 5 with the unusual eyes.

The main reason I don't really collect ancients is because there are so many fakes in the market.
I don't have enough experience with or knowledge of them to feel comfortable buying these days.
