This is the nicest Dine' butterfly pin I have ever come across, that is why I bought it, I paid a fair amount for it too. It is made from cast sheets of silver ( probably coin, but not tested )and is of significant age, 1940 or earlier, probably about 1930. Large 2 3/4" by 1 3/4", and beautifully made, great stamping, nice patina and just enough wear to show its age. Unmarked. Turquoise is nice too, small crack on the edge of one stone, but solid.
