#3041 - Garmisch 1936 Winter Olympics Bronze Winner’s Medal with Case and Diploma Estimate: $30,000+

Magnificent 1936 bronze winner's medal, plus an official diploma for third-place in pairs figure skating

Impressive winner's medal issued for the Garmisch 1936 Winter Olympics. Bronze, 100 mm, 334 gm, struck by Deschler and Sohn of Munich, Germany, and designed by Richard Klein. The front features a female holding a victory wreath and riding a triga on an arch above winter sports equipment, with raised text, "Garmisch-Partenkirchen"; the reverse shows the Olympic rings encircled with raised text, "IV Olympische, Winterspiele 1936." Complete with its maroon case, stamped on the cover with the Olympic rings. Also includes a beautiful winner's diploma from the Garmisch 1936 Winter Olympics, 13.75 x 19.25, awarded to Hungarian figure skaters Emilia Rotter and Laszlo Szollas for their third-place finish in pairs figure skating [note: this diploma was not issued with this medal, but is included as a related third-place accompaniment from the same Games]. The diploma, which has been affixed to a same-size sheet, is signed by the president of the organizing committee, Karl Ritter von Halt, and the president of the International Olympic Committee, Henri de Baillet-Latour. Only 755 athletes competed in these games, with a total of 36 gold, 36 silver, and 36 bronze medals minted. Any Garmisch winner's medal is therefore exceedingly scarce and desirable. In addition to their high rarity, the Garmisch winner's medals are among the largest and most impressive of all Olympic prize medals ever awarded. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
