Description:

1908 German Gymnastics Festival in Frankfurt silvered badge and ribbon, depicting gymnast and horse above legend, date and logo, very fine and scarce

Note: At the 1908 Olympics German gymnasts were instructed to only participate in the demonstration events (just as they had resisted to participate in previous Olympics). However 11 disobeyed the order and took part in the Games and 6 took part in the demonstrations (which were poorly attended)
