What I’ve seen and heard about the availability of these West African currency items is that there have been thousands or tens of thousands of all types in the “traditional money” market over the last 40 years or so, and that less than 100 small traders have brought out all of it.

Over the decades I’ve been selling collectibles my market has been about 97% coins, 2% paper money, 1% everything else.
