    SOLD!  Leon Martinez is a traditionalist influenced by the likes of Kirk Smith (R.I.P.), Sunshine Reeves and the legendary Tommy Singer (R.I.P).  He's won awards at both the Navajo Nation Fair and the prestigious Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial. Scrutinize this cuff and you'll see this is how one separates the wheat from the chaff (the 'chaff' being tourist trinket stuff that's so prolific on the web).  Total inside circumference here is 6.25-inches—including the 1 and 1/16th-inch 'gap.'  This is a substantially made, thicker-gauge cuff (which we constantly seek-out), so don't buy it to bend it.  It ain't 'gonna give much. Therefore, the wearer needs a wrist circumference (measured around the wrist bone) of 6 and 1/8th-inches up to 6 and 3/8th's-inches.  Measure twice; buy once.  We acquired it about 5-years ago (and the price reflects that) as a pawn piece out of an old trading post close to the 'Rez.  But it's not all that old—ten years max, probably less.  But it's definitely made in the older, traditional manner with thicker Sterling and time-consuming, hand-detailing.  Imagine the time it took just to create that magnificent bezeling!  That same detail is carried throughout the piece.  It's a real winner anyone would be proud to wear.  But alas, there's only one!   Weight is 97-grams, or 3.4-ounces. Nice!  Hallmarked "Leon MTZ."  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
