Description

    1933 Bel Geddes Bronze Medallion For GM's 25th Anniversary - Rare 29MM Size For GM Executives Only This silvered bronze medallion was designed by renowned American industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes for General Motors 25th anniversary and the 1933 Chicago World Fair of Progress General Motors Exhibition. It was sculpted by Rene Chambellan and was struck by the Medallic Art Company New York. It is signed by Geddes beneath the streamlined car on the obverse. It was produced in three sizes with the 29 mm version being the smallest and by far the scarcest. This version was only produced for the General Motors executive and was presented to members such as L. Seaton, E. Hedner and Harley Earl. Unlike the other two versions, the back of this version has the words "G.M. MENS CLUB" inscribed.
