The 12 Sterling Silver Conchos are not very large but are quite heavy for their size. I'm sure that you are familiar with light-weight Concho Belts that look and feel "flimsy"... There is a moderate tarnish patina from decades of age and. Deep stamping around the "Scalloped" Sterling Silver Concho perimeters.
Signed by Jane Popovich (aka "Yikaazha") with her cojoined "JP" hallmark. She has moved around a bit, having lived in Shiprock, Kingman, Flagstaff, and Pheonix.The Concho Belt Buckle is also stamped "Sterling". It is guaranteed to be Sterling Silver and authentic. These conchas are thick, heavy, and very well worked with high relief Repousse. Because of the thickness of the Sterling, I'm sure that was a bit of a chore. I think you will agree that it is certainly a substantial looking Concho Belt. Please, take a good look at the pictures and magnified photographs to see if it is the one for you. If so, I'd love to trade with you today. I will pack this carefully for you so that the conchos do not rub up against each other in transit and it will get to you in the same condition that you see in the pictures. I thank You and look forward to sharing a good experience!
