Copper became a popular tourist purchase as families hit the road for vacation in the 60's and 70's. It wasn't as expensive as sterling, and some examples were very nice. I think I have a few of those :-) They don't have clear coat so these are the bracelets that turn some people green!
Pic 1: Widest is 1.75" cuff and round motif, no marks. Big cuffs that would have been sold at road-side tourist shops in gas stations etc.
Pic 2: Also shows 2 wide band cuffs. The widest 1.25" is marked solid copper around a bell from the famous Bell copper company. The thinner one might be older it's only marked solid copper in an oval.
Pic 3: My Favorite!! 2" wide, no marks - feels good on and I love the dark copper patina.
Pic 4: Most of these were only a dollar or so. Thin - 3/16" to 1/2". Nothing marked but all are copper.
