Description


Very rare copper bar and clasp with raised text, “1904, Universal Exposition, Olympic Games, St. Louis,” and original attached red, white, and blue ribbon. The piece measures 47 mm x 42 mm, and weighs 8 gm. This bar and ribbon would have been attached to a winner’s medal from one of the many “Olympic” events contested at the 1904 Games. In addition to official Olympic events, sports contests in Collegiate, YMCA, AAU, and other divisions were also categorized as “Olympic” at the time, though they are not recognized as Olympic today.
