1959 Montevideo Jockey Club Medal on Silver Crystal
Back in the day, medals such as this were used to gain entrance to the Jockey Club at a racetrack for a given season. This fabulous medal hails from the Montevideo Race Course in Uruguay. The silver plated bronze medal measures 1 1/4" x 1" with red enamel framing the year on the back. The medal is suspended from an 18" necklace of offset knotted faceted silver crystal.
