Product Description

A must-read, exhaustive ten-year study of early 1900s "Fred Harvey" souvenir Indian jewelry, viewed through the prism of the silver Indian bracelet, a stalwart of collectability and time. The author introduces clarifying terminology such as "hybrid," what it is, where it comes from, and what it means.
The distinguished Fred Harvey Company is central in the comprehensive research and is its main character. The author dug deep into authoritative books, establishing a trusty foundation for many surprising discoveries and revelations.
From the earliest Ingot Silver specimen to the last nickel silver replica, the book weaves
a colorful first-hand picture of two opposing forces  . . . Authentic vs. Souvenir . . .
The book illustrates in depth how these forces became embroiled in a century-long struggle for honesty and truth. And one hundred fifty nifty color photos give readers the first real "inside" look at Fred Harvey Jewelry.
The storyline clarifies a widely distorted view of the souvenir, spotlights a surprising fiscal brotherhood, and chronicles how American culture overran the Southwestern American Indian. Included is a comprehensive Chronology of significance. Dozens of insightful tips and tricks will help readers better analyze silver Indian jewelry on their own.
This fact-filled book will infuriate some eBayers but will make immediate friends with:
  • Collectors & Historians
  • Dealers & Traders
  • Museums & Researchers
  • Jewelers & Teachers
  • Those concerned with fraud and ethics
  • And good ol' folks who want to "get it right"
