I got a message asking for information or comments about a stash of cycling medals from 1881-1886. Here is the essence of what the person had to say. He wished to remain anonymous and the medals, being family heirlooms, are not for sale. I am putting this here for our collective information.

Can you imagine having these in your family? Wow.

Comments are welcome!

We recently came across 15 medals won by a relative of mine in the 1880's while a student at Princeton University. Princeton College Athletic Association.

He (my great-grandfather) also kept a scrapbook while at Princeton which is about 7" thick, with all kinds of ephemera relating to some of the specific events where he won the medals.

Click the link above each small version to get a larger view of each.
