@shtudentt, is your round bronze? I agree that all of the Yakima rounds with this design that are on the interwebs seem to be silver. I might just call the Franklin Mint and ask them if they ever issued a bronze version. One thing that is a little odd is that the sculptor's initials seem to be to the right of the arrowhead point on the Franklin Mint version, whereas the initials (which look different to me) are to the left of the point on your piece. Maybe you have a private issue based on the Franklin Mint silver round?

Ok well if you aren't doubting its authenticity, then I would just call the Franklin Mint and see if you can find someone there who can tell you about it. Sorry that I can't be more helpful.

that what I got today ,,Hello,

Thank you for contacting the Franklin Mint. I am very sorry, but we are unable to assist you with your inquiry. This email address only supports orders and products through the online store.
We do not have access to any old collection information, appraisal details, or order history. Unfortunately, there is no support for those legacy purchases as the original Franklin Mint no longer exists.

If you have any further questions or comments, feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,

Ed
The Franklin Mint Customer Care

Does the edge contain any marks/markings? http://www.franklin-mint-silver.com...ormation.htm

The only other suggestion would be to contact the individual running the site linked to above http://www.franklin-mint-silver.com...-contact.php as he/she may be able to tell you if there is an error and what it is.

Worth a try.
