#3103 - Los Angeles 1984 Summer Olympics Torch Estimate: $2,500+

Official 1984 Los Angeles Olympics torch, brass-finished with tan leather handles, measuring 22.25 in length and 4.75 at its widest point, manufactured by Turner Ind and engraved “1983 LAOOC,” with a pair of Los Angeles Games logos on the base of the handle. The black burner remains in place, for an overall length of 23″. Bowl is engraved along the top, “Citius, Altius, Fortius, " with the rings between each word, and the L.A. Memorial Coliseum Stadium below. Complete with its original black leather carrying bag and wooden presentation stand. Exhibits some wear and fading to handle, and some scuffing to bowl. The fire was lit in Olympia, Greece on May 7, 1984, and arrived the following day in New York. On its 15,000 km journey, the torch was carried through 33 states over 82 days to Los Angeles by over 3,600 runners. A handsomely designed torch from an Olympic Games that weren’t without their share of controversy—fourteen Eastern Bloc countries, including the Soviet Union, Cuba and East Germany, boycotted the Games; Iran and Libya also boycotted, although for different political reasons. An exceptional display piece from the 1984 LA Games—the 'City of Angels' will have the distinction of hosting the Summer Olympics for a third time in 2028. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
