Description


Uncommon participation medal issued for the 1932 Lake Placid Winter Olympics. Bronze, 60 mm x 48 mm, 83 gm. The front depicts the winged figure of Fame blowing into a long horn against a wintry landscape, with the Olympic rings above; the reverse, inscribed “III Olympic Winter Games Lake Placid 1932,” features six shields of winter events, with scenes of curling and dogsledding below. Top edge inscribed by the manufacturer, “Robbins, Co., Attleboro.” A beautifully designed Olympic medal from America’s premiere Winter Games, made all the more desirable by its scarce quantity—only 700 of these seldom-seen medals were struck.
