    This Robert Stoll medal, marked Prize, was used as a pocket watch fob by my late uncle. Don’t know what the winged “I” represents.

      Welcome to CW.

      I think it means 1st place - not an I, but a number one.

      Then again, maybe not!

      Perhaps it does represent first place; also, I thought the medal was for track and field, based on the wings, however not sure about the muscled arm and fist, unless it reprints a sprinters arms when running.

      Robert Stoll was the maker and I suggest you check the archives of the New York Athletic Club. Stoll won the bid to make their medals, fobs etc. I have had a couple of these and some are more valuable that others, as with everything. The "I" over the flexed muscle suggests weight lifting to me. The "I" being a weight or barbell type item. Wings are common on many things he made. It has been years since I had contact with the athletic club and they were a little slow to reply but they were a great help and were even able to refer me to a family out in Arizona that were descendants of the person who won the prize. The last one I did was early 1900's issued by a private tennis club.

      Interesting you mentioned NY Athltic Club. I recall my late Dad mentioning that he was a sprinter during his teen years and participated in NYAC events. Although he was born and raised in Paterson, NJ, my late Grandfather, his father, was an accomplished jeweler in NYC, which would explain my Dad having access to NYAC events. (One of my Dad’s jobs was changing the oil on the Hindenburg’s engines, when he worked for Veedol.)

      Gundalow - Interesting family history. Some of these medallions can go for pretty nice money to the right collector. It seems in addition to just collecting them some collectors want all years for specific events which means if you have the one they are missing it can almost be a blank check. The Hindenburg thing hit close to home. My late father in law was a volunteer firefighter and drove over to Lakehurst to help fight the fire when the Hindenburg crashed. He actually lived in Burlington County but firefighters from all over responded to help.

      My late Dad was also a volunteer fireman in Bergen County. If you check out the photograph section, I submitted a couple photos of my Dad and co-workers during an oil change.

      I had not seen the photo's but I have now. Wonderful family history there to be proud of. I appreciate you directing me to them so I could have a look. I have a great deal of respect for such family history and how families responded to help. People now don't want to get involved.
