It is fully signed for Roger Skeet Jr., and tested for Sterling Silver.
This Exceptional Belt Features a rectangular buckle that measures 2 3/8" x 2 ¾". It has 8 Conchos that measure 2 ½" x 2 3/16", and weigh 23.7 gms each. The 7 "Butterflies" measure 1 7/8" x 1 1/8". The Overall weight of the whole Concho Belt is 357.4 grams, about 11 1/2oz. The belt strap is 1" wide and 41 ¼" long. This belt can be worn slung low on the hips, or, you can slip a concho or two off to wear at the waist.
