I purchased this old bracelet from Francis Griswold, the owner of Fort Defiance Trading Post, in 1982. Francis is probibly one of the most famous Indian Traders from the olden days. It has the original pawn ticket from 2-2-52 and was pawned from P Etisity?
I had to talk Francis out of this one as he had an attachment to it for one reason or another, actually - look at it! The Blue Gem Turquoise is from the Battle Mountain Nevada area and is most famous Turquoise by the old ones. It will fit a medium sized womans wrist.
The inner bracelet circumference measures : 5" , plus an opning of 1 1/4". 30.41mm at the widest point. The bracelet weighs 56 grams. The shank is 2.98mm thick.
