Lake Placid 1932 Official Badge: Created by the Robbins Company, the same organization that made the 1932 Winter Olympic medals, this badge is valued at more than $2,000. (The archive has two in its collection.) The same badge appeared in an Olympic auction catalog for that amount, however, it did not have the ribbon attached, nor was it on the original cardboard.
