This impressive concho belt is very hard to part with. The workmanship on the birds is without exception some of the finest I have seen.
Each concho segment is 2 1/2" x 2" and I took the Cardinal off since it was the last piece and it weighs 25.8 grams ( there are 11 in all of the birds) and the buckle is a Sun Face. The concho's are marked sterling.
The total weight of the belt is over 344 grams and that is with the leather.
It is hallmarked H. Spencer sterling.
Although this particular hallmark is attributed to a Navajo artist H. SPENCER per many of the hallmark books, there is some discussion as to whether there is a H. Spencer that is Zuni and another that is Navajo. So for this reason I am not specifically attributing it to either Zuni or Navajo.
My original thought when I obtained it was Zuni.
