German Slalom Competition Award-This was for a "ski race" held on May 7, 1939 in Mitterberg, a municipality in the Liezen district, Styria, Salzburg, Austria. According to the hand-written note on the reverse, it was given to the 2nd place finisher of the "special slalom". The front indicates it was for the 5th place finisher)"5. Sieg") so who knows what the story behind this discrepancy is. It measures about 9" by 6" and is produced in a terra cotta type material, is slightly convex with a hand painted brown finish on the obverse. There are holes in the top corners for hanging. A very interesting display piece!
