#3113 - Seoul 1988 Summer Olympics Torch Estimate: $2,500+

Beautifully designed official 1988 Seoul Olympics torch, constructed of metal, copper, leather, and plastic, measuring 20″ in length and 4″ at its widest point, designed by Lee Woo-Sung and manufactured by Korea Explosives Co. Ltd. The handle is wrapped in brown leather with a ring above, inscribed, "Games of the XXIVth Olympiad Seoul 1988," in English and Korean. The upper portion of the torch bears a colorful Olympic ring emblem and the top is engraved with an intricate dragon design symbolizing the harmony between East and West; based on the Chinese zodiac, the year 1988 was also the year of the dragon. During the 22-day relay, the Olympic flame traveled from the Greek capital of Athens to Korea's southernmost point, Jeju Island, before making its way north to Seoul in a 4,167 km relay. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
