This is an unusual old pin that was made in Mexico but looks very Native American.
It's solid sterling silver with three small bezel set red coral stones. The hand cut and hammered pin is stamped with a sunrise motif around the scalloped edge. Several deeply etched stars are around the stones.
The conch shaped pin measures 2 inches across by 1 5/8 inches high. It weighs 15.8 grams.
The back has a secure rollover clasp. It's hallmarked MEXICO - 925 - MJ-77. Not sure if the initials are correct as they may not be fully stamped.
Excellent vintage condition. Someone had unknowingly polished off the original tarnished patina. It looks nice and bright but this is at least 40 years old.
