Lot 3012

Brilliant winner's medal issued for the Stockholm 1912 Summer Olympics. Pewter, 16 gm, 33 mm, by Bertram Mackennal and Erik Lindberg. The front depicts a victorious athlete with palm branch being crowned with a laurel wreath by two seated females; the reverse, encircled with the text, "Olympiska Spelen I Stockholm," features a herald proclaiming the opening of the Olympic Games, with a bust of Ling, the founder of Swedish gymnastics, in the background. The front of the medal, designed by Mackennel, was originally used on the winner's medals for the 1908 London Summer Olympics. These pewter variations of the Stockholm winner's medal are exceedingly scarce.
