Description

**THIS ITEM IS SOLD**

Olympic Games and Exposition Universelle, Paris, 1900, Concours de Tir, winners plaque for shooting, to reverse "Concours de Tir VIIme Concours National" translated "shooting competition 7th national competition". Very fine and rare plated bronze plaque by F.-C.-V. de Vernon, winged Victory showering branches over city of Paris, rev. male athlete on a podium, robed, holding a branch, 60 x 42mm.

Switzerland's Konrad Stäheli was the outstanding marksman of the Games, taking a trio of titles and leading his country to the top of the shooting medal table. The medals were shared between six different nations. There is a debate as to whether the live pigeon shooting event was a full Olympic event, Belgian Leon Lunden shot twenty-one birds on his way to the championship. Up to thirty unofficial shooting events were also held, most involving professional marksmen. Research has shown that one of the medal events in the IOC database (25m rapid fire pistol, also called military pistol cat. 6) was contested by professionals. The 1900 Summer Olympics, today officially known as the Games of the II Olympiad, was an international multi-sport event that took place in Paris, France, in 1900. No opening or closing ceremonies were held; competitions began on 14 May and ended on 28 October.
