#3096 - Moscow 1980 Summer Olympics Torch Estimate: $1,500+

Official 1980 Moscow Olympics torch, comprised of aluminum, measuring 22″ in length and 4″ at its widest point, designed by Boris Tutschin. The gray body features red text in Cyrillic, "Moscow-Olympiad-1980," and a gold-colored top of the handle bears the emblem of the Games and Olympic rings. The top is also accented with a golden ring. Burner remains in place. A few dings and dents to the body. In all, about 5,435 torchbearers participated in the relay, which lasted from June 19 to July 19. These Olympics were especially controversial due to the USSR's recent invasion of Afghanistan, and the United States led 65 countries in a boycott of the Games.

Due to the size and fragile nature of this item, it is considered OVERSIZED. Please call RR Auction for a shipping quote.
