Olympic Torch Used in the 1968 Grenoble Winter Games — The Scarcest of All Olympic Torches, With Only 33 Produced

Olympic relay torch used in the 1968 Winter Games in Grenoble, France, one of only 33 produced by the Societe Technique d’Equipement et de Fournitures Industrielle (STEFI), the scarcest of all Olympic torches. The Torch Relay tradition began in 1928, and transports a spark – ignited by the sun using a parabolic mirror, from the parent flame in Olympia, Greece to the host city in time for the Opening Ceremonies. In this case, the flame was carried by over 5,000 torchbearers, ending at Grenoble on 6 February 1968 to launch the Games. Copper plate torch features a crenellated design at top, resembling the Olympic flame and also serving as its wind shield. The long handle segues to the top portion that holds the burner, distinguished by a silver plate featuring the official emblem of the Games designed by Roger Excoffonan. Torch measures 30” long and 3.75” wide at top. Burning apparatus is no longer present, as is often the case, and torch has only one silver plate rather than three. Small dent at bottom of handle. Remnants of soot from its use during the Games. One of the finest Olympic torches offered for sale, part of a select group of 33, all individually manufactured before mass production of Olympic torches became standard. Displays beautifully. Sold for $178,500.

Olympic Torch From the Famed 1936 Summer Olympic Games Held in Berlin — Very Few Torches From the 1936 Games Remain

Rare Olympic torch from the 1936 Summer Olympics held in Berlin, Germany while the country was under Nazi rule. This was the first year the Olympic torch relay was held, with the torch traveling from Olympia, Greece through Europe, ultimately arriving at Olympic stadium in Berlin. Because of the stainless steel shortage in the upcoming war, very few of these torches still remain, as all stainless steel was required to be melted down to create weapons. Manufactured by Krupp, torch features an engraving of the cities through which it traveled, as well as the five Olympic rings, held in the talons of the German coat of arms. Contains a circular top where the component allowing it to be lit would be attached. Measures 10.75” tall, with the circular top measuring 6” in diameter. Light scratching, else near fine. Sold for $11,794.
