Vintage Navajo Tufa Stone Cast Sterling Silver Bracelet with Crow Springs Turquoise


From the private estate of Frank Gingerich, who was a Hell's Angel motorcycle gang member, is this amazing Vintage Navajo bracelet. It comes with original receipt from 1973. (NOT the price that I paid) The bracelet was old pawn back then. I suspect this was Frank's wife's bracelet. C. 1940s.
