Breckenridge District, Summit Co., Colorado, USA

A beautiful, utterly classic Breckenridge "rope gold," particularly spectacular in its flowing aesthetic form and rich luster. Even better in person. These are old, from the 1800s, and utterly unobtainable on the market. The tope is fairly sturdy and is not "bendable" as it looks like it might be. However, if unbent, it would surely be 4 cm or so. 2.8 x .2 x .2 cm
