What is the oldest man made thing you can buy for less than $20?

Someone posted this question on reddit a few months ago and it intrigued me. The best answer I could think of was a book no one cared about from the 1800s.

US Native American Artifacts (Pre-1600)

Lots of Native American arrowheads, and a few other types of artifacts, being sold there for far less than $20.

You can buy a 1st century AD Roman coin for less than US$20. They can be found in caches of thousands.

Stone tools or chips (the discarded bits from tool making).

We call that "trash." But one person's trash is another's art.

I picked the challenge up and found this nail from 2nd century Rome . It for just under 10 dollars in case anyone did not understand Polish xD . Will update if more lovely stuff is found.

Edit: Okay. Have a pottery part from 1200 b.c.e: here and apparently with legal backup from archeological dig site. It is about 15ish dollars. Not that I really believe validity.

And even better - this fire starter from 5000 to 3000 b.c.e - link and still less than 20. Same seller has a tool set from 8000 b.c.e here but hits 20ish and it is oldest I can find. This seller seems legit as his stuff got confirmed and reviewed.
