FITCHBURG JULY 4TH 1889 BICYCLE RACE AWARD
Age. See below
Size. 2 ˝” high x 1 ˝” wide
Comments. This second-place metal was won by Herbert B. Allen in 1889 and is marked on the back” Fitchburg July 4”. The upper part has a pin back and holds the lower section via a couple of small chain. It has pressed as well as cut designs and is hand etched. There is a raised design of a high wheel bicycle (also known as a penny farthing) with the rider by its side. This medal is not marked so we are unsure what it is made of. It is in good shape with no apparent breaks having normal use wear, has tarnish and has some soiling. Also included is what appears to be the original box that was from John Harriot, Manufacturer of bicycle and athletic metals, club pins and badges that was located on 3 Winter St. in Boston. The box is in sturdy shape but does have wear, tears, soiling/stains and is missing one side on the bottom. A must have for the Fitchburg collector or bicycle enthusiasts.

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
