Navajo dead-pawn pendant by Raymond Nelson.



This was derived from expired pawn.  It is hallmarked by Raymond Nelson, who makes some of the most fabulous bracelets made by the Navajo.  It has a really thick piece of turquoise which appears to be Nevada Easter Blue but hard to tell due to age affecting the hue of turquoise.  The bale is huge and will accommodate a large-diameter beaded necklace.  Weight is a hefty 75.5 grams, or almost 2.75 ounces.  Excluding the bale it is 2.5-inches tall and 1 and 7/8's-inches wide.  Its a trophy.
