This sterling silver medal was awarded in 1902 as first prize by the late Alva Nelson. The name of the recipient was not engraved on the medal which apparently was awarded for winning at a card game tournament at Lske Hopatcong in NJ. It was used as a pocket watch fob by my late uncle, Benjamin Crum, Mt. Glen Lakes, NJ. Unlikely that I will be able to identify recipient as Lake Hopatcong Historical Society does not have newsletters from 1902.
