This is an Extremely Rare and Wonderful 1904 Olympic Games Honorary Official Ribboned Participant Medal.
Rare 1904 St. Louis Olympic Games ribboned participation medal cast by Dieges & Clust, New York, NY. The medal of octagonal form, the obverse cast to show a nude male, mid-stride, clutching a laurel branch, the sun rising over his shoulder; the verso with legend and the crests of St. Louis, France and the United States against a background of ivy; the medal suspended from a ribbon inscribed, "Aug. 29-31, Sept. 1-3, 1904" and attached to a bar impressed, "Hon. Official."
The gold leaf (tarnished but visible in WorthPoint listing) that was originally present on the ribbon is gone, but the impression of the lettering is still present, and you can use the info in the WP listing to write what it says, even though it is difficult to read.
