Each one is hand cast in white bronze, giving them a sterling silver look. Cowboys and Bandidos of the period would often use these coins to buy what they needed when out of cash. This was a convenient way to both decorate their gear and have a back money. These large conchos are $24.95 each, or a pair for $44.95.

CJ-13 PALADIN STERLING SILVER CHESS KNIGHT
The series ran from 1957 to 1963. Boone chose the Chess Knight because of its ability to make so many moves. One original is in the National Cowboy Museum, another is in the Cody Museum. We are friends with the curator in both museums and have been able to source sizes and designs. In addition we have another friend who has an exact replica. Many other copies are very poor and do not look anything like the original or have any way of attaching to leather. Ours is hand crafted of Solid Sterling Silver and has the original style of leather attachment. These must be used with lined holsters or other applications. This is not a thin or tinny concho. It is 2 1/8″ x 1 1/8″. Supply is very limited and price is dependent on the current silver price that seems to raise daily. If you want one please order today.
