This scarce 1928 Winter Games bronze winners medal is approximately 50mm in diameter, 3.3mm in thickness, and weighs approximately 61 grams. This winners medal was minted by the Huguenin Freres of Locle, and was designed by Arnold Hunerwadel. One side of the medal features a female figure skater, with her arms outstretched, surrounded by ice crystals, with the reverse featuring the Olympic rings and five lines of raised letters, in French, which read, “II. Jeux Olympiques D’ Hiver, St. Moritz 1923.” In extra fine condition. The Olympics at St. Moritz were just the second Winter Games held, with only 495 athletes participating. This was one of only 25 bronze medals issued at the 1928 Winter Games, and one of only 80 total winners medals that were presented during the entire proceedings. A paramount example.
