1893 Columbian Exposition Award Medal Bronze Eglit 90 Presentation Case For Sale

1893 Columbian Exposition Award Medal Bronze Eglit 90 Presentation Case

1893 Columbian Exposition Award Medal BronzeEglit 90 with Presentation Case, Shipping box, 1896 Postmark, Documentation

Offering an 1893 Columbian Exposition Award medal with the Presentation Case, Shipping box, 1896 Washington D.C. Postmark and Paperwork.

Thesemedals were awraded to various participants in the 1893 Columbian Exposition and World's Fair, held in Chicago in 1893. This one was awarded to a Mrs. L. Vader of Manitowic, Wisconsin. Struck in Bronze, it is 3" (76mm) in diameter.

The obverse, by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, is a very dramatic depiciton ofColumbus boldly taking his first strides into the New World.

The reverse, by Charles Barber, was widely criticized at the time for being less inspiring than the obverse, but it serves the purpose of showing various themes from the exposition and to present the name of the person to which it was awarded.

These medals are very popular and tend to be scarce, however, it is absolutely extraordinary to find one like this, well preserved, with the fragile shipping boxes and documentation!

The medal and the aluminum presentation case, with the card from Scovill's Manufacturing, are in pristine condition, having been well protected over the years in the balsa wood shipping box.

The balsa wood shipping box is also in excellent condition. It is very well made with fitted jointsand a sliding top.The outer cardboard box, with the name and address of Mrs. Vader, as well as the serial number and Department of Agriculture title, is a bit ragged with some splits and one of the small interior flaps is missing. But, considering it's age and how delicate it is, it's remarkable that it has survived at all!

The other two pieces of Documentation are in good condition, but have been creased.

The first piece is part of the original shipping label, with the 1896 postmark from Washington, D.C. (Note that, due to various issues with production, these medals were all shipped well after the close of the exposition.) It has some writing on it in what appears to be blue pencil. The back is blank.

The second piece is the notification that the package is only to be delivered to the intended recipient. This is also blank on the back, but someone has made some number calculations in pencil.

I've including as many detailed photos as I could fit. I invite you to have a good look at them before offerding.
