Most of these range from 1/4" to 1" sterling - Native American.
Pic 1: Diverse designs.
Pic 2: My favorites: Deep X w/round stamp mark, Navajo marked Sterling FJ and Feathery waves stamped STERLING.
Pic 3: In foreground - 3-sided stamp work marked Sterling TAHE and a wonderful hand-made pyramid shape "carinated" band w/hand scribed "by brother Augustin Redwin" inside and "yearbook" on outer w/sunburst stamps. (I really love this one.)
On the mallet L-R: 1-Feather waves, 2-Navajo FJ, 3-.75" Sterling TAHE, 4-5/8" w/twisted rope center - no marks. 5-1" shapes look like Alaskan motifs - marked I LECHEN? Los Angeles, 6-X -circle Maibel? Sterling, 7-1" w/2 twisted ropes- Sterling TAH and 8-beautiful shadow? box design marked AJD. It shows up better in pic 1 at the bottom.
I know some of my info is probably wrong. for example the Los Angeles cuff might not be NW native American. The thinnest sheet is the widest #3 - all else are heavy and don't rebend easily. Still I'm nervous to wear them for fear one will fall off.
Any comments or help w/marks is appreciated.
