This is quite a find. Acquired very recently from a respected trading post near the Arizona/New Mexico border, it was presented as being from the sixties. I might dispute that, but the back shows the appearance of age, and it has thick-gauge Sterling like that used in the past. My guess is more like 20 or 25 years old. I was told the maker, whose hallmark on the back is "JN," was a close relative of the late Tommy Singer. Indeed, it is almost exactly like Tommy Singer's own bolo tie I now have hanging in the closet. If it were not for the one in the closet I would most certainly keep this jewel. It has everything—excellent silversmithing done thicker than most are today; Sterling spacers; extra-long, 2 and 3/8th's-inch custom made Sterling drops, and a very thick, rich-looking braided lanyard. It has a nice turquoise stone that appears to be from the Turquoise Mountain Mine, held in by an intricately-made fluted bezel. The Sterling bolo itself is three-inches long. The entire bolo tie hangs 23-inches from the back of the neck, meaning it is about 46-inches end-to-end. Bolos are slow sellers, but this one shouldn't be.
