Participation medal issued for the Garmisch 1936 Winter Olympics. Bronze, 60 mm, 71 gm, by Kunststickerei M. Jorres. The front, inscribed, "Olympische Winterspiele, 1936, Garmisch-Partenkirchen," features the Olympic rings over an alpine summit; the reverse bears a simple motto, "Citius Altius Fortius," over a fir branch. An apparent custom necklace hole has been neatly refilled. Only 1,660 of these were struck, making it one of the rarer participation medals.
