I am pleased to offer this Rare Antique 1925 New York Turnvereins 75th Anniversary Medal! The Turnverein, known today as the American Turners, were gymnastic societies founded in American Cities by German immigrants beginning in the mid 1800s. The Turners contributed greatly to American life, with the most notable being the inclusion of Physical Education in our school systems.
This particular medal was from the New York Turnvereins, and honors the75th anniversary (1850-1925). The medal is made of brass. The back of the medal is stamped by Dieges & Clust.
