Silver w/Turquoise... NAVAJO Cuff Bracelet (Parma)

123456
I looked online for a few days for the maker & found, by the stampings & engravings, it was made by a Navajo silversmith named Charlie Bits. The "crossed arrows" was his signature. I know for sure my grandmother bought this bracelet in Arizona or New Mexico when she took her 4 kids (my dad included) to the Southwest in the early 1940's, (last 2 pictures).

I don't know the weight, but the value is not the silver content, it's the piece itself, who made it & when. It's ART... 3/4" at its widest point.

I'm 99% sure it's made with coin silver. It has that look & feel & smell and years ago, my dad remembered & told us they were using mercury dimes... easy to melt & work with.

was asking $200
now
$150 firm.
