Description

    1938 Helen Wills-Moody Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Championship Gold Medal. It was an all American Finals for Ladies' Singles in London this year, with Wills handily defeating Helen Hull Jacobs by a straight-set tally of 6-4, 6-0. Presented is the gleaming symbol of that victory, Wills' last of eight Singles Championships on those famous grass courts, as well as her last Major win at any venue. The prize features a classical victory figure in front of a tennis net at obverse and text on verso announcing, "The Lawn Tennis Championship, 1938 Ladies' Singles Champion, Mrs. Helen Wills Moody." Medal measures one and a half inches in diameter and is housed in its original velvet lined case from "Fattorini & Sons Jewellers" of England. Top of the case is embossed in gold, "The Lawn Tennis Championships 1938." Fine condition.
