#3047 - Berlin 1936 Summer Olympics Winner's Diploma Estimate: $1,500+

Extremely attractive official bronze medal winner’s diploma issued to the German eight-man rowing team at the Berlin 1936 Summer Olympics, 19.75 x 15, with a view of the Olympiastadion flanked by embossed images of the Brandenburg Gate and the Olympic Bell, with bold German text: “Ehrenurkunde, Deutschland, Dritter, Achter [Honorary Certificate, Germany, Third, Eighth].” In very good to fine condition, with a small gouge to center, and slight wear/creasing to edges.

Held between August 12-14 at the Grünau Regatta Course near Berlin, Germany, the men's eights competition was won by a United States crew from the University of Washington with a time of 6:25.04; the second and third place teams, Italy and Germany, were close behind, with respective times of 6:26.0 and 6:26.4. The event is chronicled in The Boys in the Boat written by Daniel James Brown. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
