Description:
New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association gold medal awarded for the 100 Yard event to Eulace Peacock in 1932. The medal consists of a gold toned pin holding a red, white, and blue ribbon attached to a gold toned medal. The pin has a safety pin closure on the back and a bar that holds the ribbon. The ribbon is crimped to the front of the bar at each corner. Attached to the bottom of the ribbon is a clover shaped medal, held in place with two (2) jump rings. The obverse of the medal is edged with two concentric black enamel circles. In the center is a relief depiction of the official state seal of New Jersey, featuring two female figures standing on either side of a shield decorated with three plows. There is forwarding facing helmet above the shield, and above the helmet is a horse’s head depicted in profile. Below is a banner with three folds. Printed on the folds is the New Jersey state motto, [LIBERTY &], [PROSPERITY], and the date of New Jersey’s statehood, [1776], on the fold below. The female figure on the left is the goddess Liberty. She holds a staff topped with the liberty cap in her proper right hand. The female figure on the right is the goddess Ceres, who holds a cornucopia filled with agricultural products in her proper left hand. Above the seal is the relief text [N.J.S.I.A.A.], and below, [CHAMPIONSHIP]. The reverse of the medal has engraved text that reads [100 YD. / A / 32]. Along the bottom edge of the medal is a stamped maker’s mark that reads [BRADSHAW / NEWARK / N.J. / X-].
