Paula says - "The rectangular concho plates of this belt were made from ingots of pure silver and are so marked - that is what the .999 refers to. Sterling Silver, which is .925 silver, has other metals added to strengthen the silver. That is why Herb Coriz used sterling silver for the buckle since it is the part of the belt that would receive the most stress.

"We’ve left this old piece AS IS, the same condition in which we received it, because the historic condition is so very appealing. We estimate that it is from before 1950."
