Lot 3004: Non-athletic award medal from the Paris 1900 Exposition Universelle Internationale. Bronze, 63.5 mm, 100 gm, by Jules-Clement Chaplain. The front depicts a profile view of Marianne, the national symbol of the French Republic; the reverse bears an athlete with a torch riding on the back of Nike, the goddess of victory.
