Many of the Mexican conchas were made from coins. What is the silver content in Mexican pesos?
I remember my Dad telling me that the Cherokee Smith he learned from often used old Mexican coins and US silver dollars for material to work with.
I have coin silver pieces in my collection that are stamped " Coin 800". I'd not be surprised to learn Mexican coin is less that 800.

I have heard of the 725, but gads that was years ago, my family is a rodeoing family ( hence the cowgirl part of my name) and the silver Mexican conchos are where I saw the marking, UNFORTUNATELY the saddle set I'm talking about is long gone and scavenged by the kids. But I can see where that with conches make sense. If I find one (major tack cleanout soon) I'll post.
