1915 Panamapacific International Exposition Goldmedal Of Award Waltham Watch Box

We offer for sale this MEDAL: 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition Gold Plated Bronze Medalof Award in Case.Original beautiful Waltham Watch Co. Mahogany Case, lined in Purple & Black, in excellent condition.Our neighbor and friend asked us to sell this medal for him, it had belonged to his great-great uncle Olaf Ohlson,who worked for Waltham Watch Co., as a Development Lab Scientist and Inventor, if fact he still has several of hisuncle’s patterns.The awarding of medals at worlds fairs was an important tradition that continued at the PPIE. People put great effort into their products and exhibits with the hopes of winning an award. Companies would sometimes print the news of the award they won ontheir product labels for years after a worlds fair. It was quite a badge of honor, and was used somewhat as a seal of approval for consumers -- that the product that they were considering purchasing was a quality product.

The medals were designed by John Flanagan, and struck at the Philadelphia Mint. He also designed the Washington Quarter. It is 70 mm,

2 7/8 inches round, as issued at the exposition in its original case. Case is 3 ½ X 4 ½ inches and 1 ¼ inches deep.

The obverse has a nude man and woman standing over the Panama Canal. It reads: "DIVINE DISIVNCTA IVNXIT HOMO". I think thistranslates

to "The divine likeness joins man". The reverse shows the Tower of Jewels and reads: "PANAMA-PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION",

"MCMXV" and "MEDAL OF AWARD".
