1897 CACC Cycling 14k Gold Medal San Miguel Mission Centennial by Shreve & Co.
Incredible historical find! This is a gold medal awarded by the CACC (California Associated Cycling Club) on September 24th, 1897 at a 2/3 Mile Amateur bicycle race put on at the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the San Miguel Mission in California. I found a record of this bike race in a Sacramento newspaper (see last photo). Just Wow!
