1927 B & O Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Centenary Commemorative Medal Bronze

90.00

This is a 1927 medal commemorating the Centennial Anniversary of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.  Struck in bronze by the Medallic Art Company, it is 2 3/4" (70 mm) in diameter.  The sculptor is Hans Schuler.

It's a beautifully designed medal!  

The obverse depicts a then modern Steam Engine coming through a mountain pass, guided by "the Spirit of Transportation".  Around this is "One Hundred Years Safety Strength Speed".

The reverse is B & O's first steam engine, Peter Cooper's Tom Thumb.  Around this is "The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company 1827 - 1927".

It comes in the original presentation box.

The medal has no signs of wear or distracting marks.

The box is a bit worn. The cover has departed from the bottom and the interior felt has faded. It still serves the purpose of keeping the medal safe and secure.
