Handsome ‘Steward’ badge from the London 1908 Summer Olympics. Silvered bronze, 41 gm, 57 mm in diameter, stamped on the reverse with a Vaughton of Birmingham maker's mark. The badge depicts the head of Athena facing a laurel branch and encircled by a blue enameled border with the text, "Olympic Games London 1908, Steward." A wonderfully attractive badge from an Olympiad that extended for over six months—the longest in modern history.
