A 1920s sterling silver shield medal in sterling silver with a cutwork crown to the top, a domed central shield and hand chased detail throughout.
This is a racing cyclist's medal and is stamped to the reverse side for a cycling time trial, '25 MILE T.T' and the medal winner's time in 1928. A nice slice of history that looks great worn as a pendant.
+ All the detail
The medal has full hallmarks for sterling silver, England, the City of Birmingham and the year 1928. The maker's mark 'HB&S' for the silversmiths Henry Bushell & Son of Birmingham. The heavy suspension ring is also sterling silver.
Size: 1 x 1.25 inches (25mm x 32mm) and the crest domes in the center to approximately 2mm in thickness.
Age: 1928 89 years of age.
Weight: 4.4grams (without the chain)
Condition: Very, very good. Highly polished with crisp detail and reverse side wording, no nasty dings or scratches.
The Chain: Presented on a new sterling silver rolo or belcher chain, 50cm or slightly under 20 inches long. The medal and chain are shown on a life size torso in photograph 2.
The engraved wording on the back of this medal is intriguing - a slice of history that would be a great gift for a cyclist.
