NASA KSNN How much is money worth?
Many items have been used as money throughout the world. Cattle, cowry shells, feathers, salt, ivory, whales' teeth, jewelry, and tools have been used as money for some societies. North American Indians used Wampum, strings of white beads made from clam shells, as money. Eventually, most societies used coins and paper money for trade. It's easy to see that the other forms of money might become cumbersome, although today some societies still use and prefer barter in place of money.
