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.
