Are there any Golf Antique collectors out there. I picked up a 1931 stering silver medal with Bobby Jones embossed image. If anyone has a copy of Olmans' Guide to Golf Antiques it is on page 171...If you could tell me what it says about the medal I would be grateful.

this is what I know about it....1½x1" rectangle "Emergency Unemployment Relief" sterling silver medal with red, white and blue attached ribbon and pin.
Nice embossed golfing image of Bobby Jones with his facsimile autograph and dated 1931. Maker's imprint and "I Will Share Golf Tournament" engraved on verso. "This Bobby Jones medal was issued in 1932 as part of a fund-raising effort for those left unemployed by the Great Depression" - (pictured as figure 13-8) in Olmans' Guide to Golf Antiques, p. 171.
