Wisconsin University 1926 sports gold medal – 1st Prize for Sprint Medley, UOW 3rd Outdoor Interscholastic Relay Carnival; scarce type in great condition, considering the age.
Original-issue University of Wisconsin sports gold-filled medal struck for the 3rd Outdoor Interscholastic Relays event in 1926. This specimen is the rare 1st Prize medal for the Sprint Medley event. The outer gold layer is intact; the overall level of detail is fantastic; it is a superb piece of work executed with a great attention to detail. The medal is in great overall condition, considering the age; original blue silk ribbon has fallen apart but the pin is still attached. Original golden-honey patina throughout; no typical rim nicks, dings, or heavy scratches; about 38.5 mm in diameter at the widest point; total weight is about 20 grams. The “gold 1st place” type is scarce in any shape or form nowadays.
This 95-yr old sport’s medal came from an old-time collection of a NJ-based gentleman which I recently purchased; I have about 20 various US badges, pins, and awards to list, some are pretty rare. This original Wisconsin University 1926 sports gold medal is guaranteed to be genuine or your money back. I have more medals, badges, pins, and commemorative medals available for sale, please check out Badges & Medals store section for additional listings.
