Description

    1964 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games Silver Winner's Medal with Presentation Box - Football/Soccer. This significant medal was awarded to a member of Czechoslovakia's soccer team, whose efforts on the field proved to be the second greatest of the entire 1964 Olympiad. The medal remains beautifully preserved throughout, retaining its original, lustrous surfaces as when originally presented almost a half century ago. Only minimal tarnishing to scattered areas of the glistening silver is evident, predominantly the high points of the medal's magnificent design. This important medal also proved to be the first on which a colorful ribbon hanger was attached, thus allowing for receiving athletes to wear them about their necks, in celebrated fashion, during the awards ceremony. Aside from several instances of metal chain-like hangers, the practice of adorning Olympic medals with colorful ribbon hangers continues to this day. The accompanying ribbon (often missing on surviving specimens), is original as issued, remains in exceptional condition and is firmly affixed. The original presentation box, which is commonly missing or broken at the hinges, is itself in remarkable condition
