Description: These are old, coin silver, ingot conchos which are completely handmade, and they are attributed to being late 1st phase or early 2nd phase in age. They are on, what is likely, the original leather which appears to be an old leather bridle rein. This is really a neat old piece! You don't see them like this very often! It was tested as being at least coin silver.
Maker: Early Navajo style, but there is no maker's hallmark (which is common of jewelry items made during this era). Size: Conchos measure 2 1/4" wide x 2". Buckle is 1 3/4" w x 1" h.
Belt is 45 long overall. Condition: Conchos are good for its age, but the leather is a bit fragile.The leather will be ok if you just plan to display it, but if you want to wear it, the leather will not hold up long. Please look closely at the pictures as they are an important part of our description. Western Trading Post is family owned and operated and can trace it's roots back to 1877.
