Joe Beeler's Native American Portrait Medals


Multi-Media Summary

Arizona grocer Eddie Basha and cowboy artist Joe Beeler teamed up in 1983 to create an annual series of 24 cast bronze and pewter medals featuring Native American portraits to be presented to friends, customers, and business associates as Christmas gifts. The series ended in 2005 after Beeler passed away in 2006. The large cast medals (approximately 90mm) were never sold and have entered the marketplace in the past few years primarily through estate sales. Speaker: Bill Hyder.
