Rare 1904 University of Virginia John R.Thompson Poetry Award presented to Charles Francis the third by the University of Virginia Magazine. This award is solid 14kt. gold with little over 15 grams of gold, custom ribbon with rolled gold filigree clasp. The medal is about the size of a half-dollar if anyone can recall what a half-dollar is. Exquisite piece for what must have been one heck of a poem.
