Lot 3067: Official 1976 Montreal Olympics torch, comprised of aluminum, measuring 26? in length and 3? at its widest point, designed by Georges Huel and Michel Daillaire. The simple torch consists of just a red handle emblazoned with the Montreal Olympics emblem, and a black 'basket' to carry the flame. The black color on top was intended to make the flame stand out even more. About 1,200 torchbearers participated in the relay, which lasted just four days from July 13 to July 17 and covered 775 km. A superior example of this exquisite 1976 torch.
