Silver, 70 mm x 44 mm, 72 gm, by Andre Mery. The front depicts a wide view of the Reims park, a figure of a Greek athlete, and a tablet, which reads: “Reception du Team, Olympique American, 23 Juillet 1912”; the reverse shows a beautiful city view and an engraved tablet: “800 Metres, 1er, D. S. Caldwell.” Stamped “Argent” on an edge. Includes the original brown paper box.
