Navajo Old Pawn Sterling Silver Coin Necklace
This is a fantastic old pawn Navajo necklace made from sterling silver beads and featuring silver Mercury Dimes and a silver Walking Liberty half dollar coin. These coins were minted between 1916 and 1947 and are 90 percent silver with 10 percent copper. The necklace is 24 inches and the Walking Liberty pendant measures 1 3/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches. This piece is surprisingly lightweight. 75 g.
The patina on old pawn Navajo jewelry is very important as it represents the age of the piece and the value.
