Description  

Striking amateur Athletic Association medal presented to Olympian fencer George H. Breed, captain of the 1912 USA team. Gold-plated medal measures approximately 1.75″ in diameter and is attached to its original red, white, and blue ribbon, with the crossbar reading “Championship,” for an overall length of 5.75″. Engraved around the edge of the medal is “Foils,” and “G. H. Breed 1911.” Front of the medal bears a raised image of a fencer and “Amateur Fencers League of America MDCCCXCI,” in raised letters around the edge, and the AAU emblem on the reverse. Condition is extra fine, with some light fraying to ribbon. Breed was an expert fencer who competed in the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm, and was set to return to the games in 1920 before unexpected business developments forced him to pull out of the competition only two days before leaving for Antwerp. Handsome display piece focused on an elite athlete from long ago.
