    I love this beautiful sandcast sterling w/turquoise pin. It's 2,5"x 1.25" marked LE Sterling on back. I also wear this pinned to a wide black leather bracelet in the "bow guard" style altho it is not nearly as beautiful as those traditional ketohs.

    I found this about 15 yrs ago....I think for $20 at a auction for a closing trading post. I didn't have much money and I tried to buy as much as my budget allowed.

    All comments appreciated and don't worry if you only like it.

      Thank you mel! This is a great website. I have used it before but thanks for posting it here. I need to go back thru and ID some items. No I can't find the same LE mark. I'm glad you love my jewelry. Will be posting more.

      I love it ofcourse! Of the two brooches I love this the most.

      Thank you Elisabeth - it has more of the traditional Navajo style. I bought both pins the same day. I couldn't decide and the price was very good.

      Thank you toe! Yes another really great Navajo pin. I have been collecting for a long time. But I make mistakes. Recently bought some fakelite - it was listed as bakelite but wasn't. I wasn't sure so I didn't bid too much. I think that's the secret don't you? I enjoy hearing comments - would love to see what you collect.
