    1904 Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, EST-ZAN-LOPA, Navajo Tribe, Ganado, Arizona, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. Glossy chocolate-brown surfaces display traces of mahogany on the devices. Two large medallions are known, along with six small size (70 mm.) examples. This example and one other are the only galvanos known outside of museums. Our census has accounted for 216 medallions in total for all of the varieties.
