    Description

    1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics Ring. For the second time in its existence, the Olympics descended upon Los Angeles when the Games of the XXIII Olympiad commenced in July of 1984. Peter Ueberroth served as the organizer of the '84 games in the City of Angels. This ring, the first we have seen, was presented to Joel Rubenstein who played a role on the organizing committee. "1984 Los Angeles LAOOC" surrounds the outside while a star is decorated with a diamond at the center. One side has "Games of the XXIIIrd Olympiad" and an Olympic leaf crown. The other side has the official Olympic emblem. "Joel K. Rubenstein" and "LAOOC 14k" are engraved on the inner band. Weight is eighteen grams (18g.). The original Jostens ring box attends.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
