Ballards may be weaker,

We never see things like that here, either. The whole single shot target rifle era seemed to avoid the western states, other than a little in California. (I may be off there, but not by much)
Thanks for showing your collection to us, they are very nice.


Don't tell the folks in Denver around the late 1800's!

Bob - Is that medal from the 3rd National Shooting Festival solid gold? If it is, that might be the medal won by Adolf Strecker for first place in the King match at that tournament. It was a 200-shot event fired on the Point target (a 12" bull with center scoring 3, second ring scoring 2 and outer ring scoring 1, shots outside the 12" center scored zero).

Randy, I would assume it is. The gold medals were suppose to have been made from $20 gold pieces. I do not own this medal, I just had a picture of it. It is one of the more elegant medals (IMO) I've seen and would have loved to have it. If I recall right the flowers are precise/semi precise stones.

Not unusual for posts to occasionally disappear here. Once you find them and post, they usually stay around.

how do you guys find them,   I have haunted antique and collectable shops for years and the only shooting medals I have been seen were old US GI shooting badges and a few similar Boy scout ones.    Just the story of the OPs collecting of them would be fascinating.

Maybe if one had been a GI in the occupation army with a little extra cash to spend at the time it might have helped start a collection.
