Description


Tremendous collection of 10 badges issued for the Sapporo 1972 Winter Olympics. All badges are silvered bronze, 25 mm x 60 mm, 43 gm, with the front of each bearing the Sapporo Games logo above Olympic rings and the text, “Sapporo ‘72”; the reverse features a pin and raised Japanese text. Each badge also bears a colored enamel bar of either red, blue, or purple, with nine badges featuring a white-and-yellow ribbon suspended below, and one badge, with blue “Official” enamel bar, bearing a solid green ribbon. The red enamel badges include: “Olympic Film,” “Radio & TV,” “Photo,” “News Film,” and “Press”; the blue enamel badges: “S.O.O.C. Official [Sapporo Olympic Organizing Committee],” “Committee,” “Official,” and “J.A.S.A. [Japan Amateur Sport Association]”; and the single purple enamel badge: “Guest.” A gorgeous collection of decidedly scarce Olympic badges—this collection marks the first time we have offered any badge from the 1972 Sapporo Games.
