Scarce and attractive match official's badge issued for the Cortina 1956 Winter Olympics, measuring 32 mm x 54 mm, featuring an enameled design of the Winter Olympics logo set on an off-white background with "Ufficiale di Gara” below. The reverse is marked, “C. O. N. I., Mod. Depositato, Stabilimenti Artistici Fiorentini.” Complete with its worn paper envelope, imprinted with the Olympic rings. A mere 173 of these badges were issued to game officials and judges at Cortina. A scarce badge with its even rarer original envelope.
