Heavy Navajo Sterling Silver Concho Belt. 11 Conchos + 1 Belt Buckle.
1.92" X 1.4". 2.3" X 1.81". Black Leather Belt is 37" and is set up now for a 31" - 34 waist. It is 1.0 wide.
It may be modified to accommodate a smaller waist by adding an additional hole. 259.2 grams = 8.33 Troy ounces Total Weight. 214.8 grams = 6.91 Troy ounces Metal Weight. This great old Navajo Concho Belt was made several decades ago, but it is not signed.I can not tell you who made this one. My guess is that it is 30-50 years old. It has lots of tarnish patina on the back and the copper double back-straps. I just polished the faces of the conchas and the buckle becasue they were actually black with patina! It is stamped "Sterling" and it is guaranteed to be Sterling Silver and authentic.
If you have a larger waist than 34 (like me), this belt strap would need to be replaced. 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! Recomended Reference Books - This artist is referenced if there is a page # shown below.
