Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Size: 16cm high, 10.5cm wide – 6¼ ins high, 4 ins wide
cf: An example very similar of 1792 in the Smithsonian Museum New York awarded at a conference between a delegation of Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida Tuscarova and Stockbridge tribes and President Washington, the Secretary of War, the Governor of Pennsylvania and others on March 13th 1792
Prior to Thomas Jefferson’s presidency the obverse and reverse of the medal were separate silver sheets and before 1804 were engraved and not struck. As evidenced by those taken by Lewis and Clark on their famous 1804 – 1806 expedition to explore the Louisiana Purchase, which were struck as opposed to being engraved.
