The article discusses the report titled "Zur Bedeutung Europaischer Silbermunzen fur den Traditionellen Schmuck Agyptens und des Sudan," by P.W. Schienerl. Silver is widely used in traditional jewelry in Egypt and Sudan. Gold is restricted for use by the rich in urban centers. The use of silver in ornaments by the less wealthy is a recent development. This fact is important for the reconstruction of the historical development of traditional jewelry.
