This is an old medal from the Philadelphia Inquirer Games. On the front of the triangular medal is a detailed picture of a man in a sprinting pose. “Philadelphia Inquirer Games” frames the runner along with two small sprigs of laurel. The back is not engraved but it does have the maker; Martin. The medal is attached to a blue and gold ribbon by means of a couple of jump rings. The ribbon has a plaque pin at the top that reads; Official. I believe this is from the 1950’s.
The medal measures about 1 5/8” wide by 1 3/8” high to the top of the attached ring. Overall it hangs about 1 ¾” long. It is in very nice condition with minor wear. The ribbon has minor soiling.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
