Paula says - "The vintage sterling silver conchos and butterflies are in excellent condition with an even dark patina. The sand cast sterling silver buckle also has a nice patina. It has four blue turquoise stones with dark brown matrix that are set in smooth bezels..

"The 34-inch leather belt is solid and intact but has surface cracking as seen in the photo at the bottom. You have the option of buying a new 48-inch leather belt that you can put the conchos on or that we can put the conchos on before we send it. You will need to punch holes in the new leather.

Patina
A dark or colored film of oxidation that forms naturally on metal exposure to air and other elements. It is often valued for its aesthetically pleasing appearance. All items in our Pawn Shop have some patina, even .
Vintage
30 years or older.
NOS
New Old Stock. Made at least 20 years ago but never used.
Pre-owned
An item that has been used.
NOTE: Items in our Pawn Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish, scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and shown in photos. Pawn Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.
Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
