    Description

    A Steve McQueen Mounted Medal Depicting Saint Christopher. A 1" medal depicting an image of St. Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, surrounded by the text "Saint Christopher/ Protect Us," affixed to a machined metal placard bearing the engraved inscription "For Turn Nine/ S.M.;" the inscription likely references the near-disastrous turn nine McQueen took during a February, 1970 race near San Diego, in which the car's gearbox exploded beneath him; as St. Christopher in the modern world is often seen as a protector of motorists, it's no surprise McQueen associated this medal with his racing accident; includes an airmail envelope inscribed "For Turn Nine" in an unknown hand. (Please note there are some chips and wear to the placard's machined finish, as well as some epoxy residue on the verso from a previous mounting.)
    4" x 2 1/4"
