Rare winner's medal for the Berlin 1936 Summer Olympics. Gilt silver, 57 mm, 72 gm, by Giuseppi Cassioli. The front, inscribed, “XI. Olympiad, Berlin, 1936,” features a ‘Seated Victory’ with the Coliseum in the background; the reverse portrays a winner carried by jubilant athletes; and the bottom edge engraved, "B. H. Mayer, Pforzheim." Complete with its faded leather case. Also included: a small Olympic Rings pin; and a winner's ribbon issued for rowing, manufactured by Lauer, featuring the Olympics rings over the Brandenburg Gate, with the badge engraved “XL Olympiade Berlin 1936, 758," and the original blue ribbon with text, “Rudern, Mannschaftsfuhrer." This gorgeous medal was awarded to German rower and Olympic team captain Gustav Schafer, whose masterful finals performance earned him first place in the single sculls competition. Germany dominated the rowing competition, winning a medal in each of the seven events, including five golds. A tremendously sought-after winner's medal from the controversial 1936 Berlin Olympics.
