Incredibly rare 1936 Winter Olympics bronze medal, one of only 36 made
Description  

This rare 1936 Winter Games bronze winners medal is approximately 100mm in diameter, ranges from 4mm to 5mm in thickness, and weighs approximately 298 grams. The winners medal was minted and struck by Deschler and Sohn of Munich, Germany, and designed by Richard Klein. One side of the medal features a figure in a chariot holding a wreath and illustrating winter sports equipment below, with the artist’s initials along the right side, with the reverse showing the Olympic rings, and “IV Olympische, Winterspiele 1936,” in raised letters around the edge. Condition is near mint. Only 755 athletes competed in these games, with a total of only 36 gold, 36 silver, and 36 bronze medals minted, making these large medals virtually unobtainable. This example is one of the two largest Olympic winners medals ever awarded. A truly significant offering.
