While certainly comfortable within the genre of so called Fred Harvey jewelry crafted as a concession for period visitors, these older butterflies (well, ones like this) are actually great examples of tribal aesthetic folk art. The "BA" pin engraved to the back is likely an old trader coding.
Weight is good for the form at about 6 grams on my portable digital scale. Condition is quite fine with an untouched aura of time to the silver surfaces. Be aware I have avoided any urge to refresh or "improve" - you want that done, you do it. The turquoise is well preserved and has achieved that requisite "look".
The trader supplied 45 degree pin and locking clasp (of a type seen on some WW2 AAF pilot wings) are ready for your next outing. All typical and expected evidence of period jacket duty simply validate the history. A look at those pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition.
Size is about 1 9/16 in. Vertical and 1 3/16 in. If you prefer historic Navajo and Pueblo silver wearable artworks over current southwestern fare, or simply wish a single immediate improvement to the ambiance of any day you choose, this will have great meaning for you.THIS IS LISTED AS U.
