Crafted between 1938 and 1942 under the U.S. Government’s Indian Arts and Crafts Board’s (IACB) program. This ensured that only the highest-quality handmade Indian silver jewelry would be sold by IACB-approved trading posts. The program was directed by Navajo silversmith and instructor, Ambrose Roanhorse. He hand made all the various "U.S. NAVAJO 1” stamps and personally visited the various posts to inspect, approve and stamp the finished pieces of jewelry if they were up to standard. The numbers corresponds to each registered company.GUIDE TO BUYING AMERICAN INDIAN JEWELLERY by author Robert Bauver
