This is an old medal advertising Alfred’s Ice King. An early post cards showed the building which claimed to be the Largest Tubular Ice Skate Plant in the World. The company was located in Chicago. I also found an old advertisement which stated that the Alfred Johnson Ice King hockey and racer skates were Guaranteed Forever. The gold colored medal has very nice detail with the image of an early ice skate, a majestic eagle and a wreath of laurel. It has not been engraved. The medal is attached to an old red, white and blue grosgrain ribbon by means of a couple of jump rings and there is an attached pin at the top. I believe this nice advertising piece is from the 1930’s.
The medal measures about 1 5/8” long by 1 ¼” across the ealge’s wings and the overall length with the ribbon is about 3 ¼”. The medal is in very nice condition with minimal wear. There is a slight discoloration on the back. The ribbon has minor soiling and fading from age.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
