Paris medal 1955 by Marcel Renard
« on: July 21, 2020, 07:28:28 PM »
Pretty little (32 mm) medal by Marcel Renard with a well known obverse. It's the reverse that I'm having problems with.
T.A.I.A.M.  PARIS 1955 I've had to lighten the image to clarify the legend.

Any thoughts on TAIAM?

I've drawn a blank, too.

A guess for some of the letters:

T... de l'Association Internationale de l'A.... M....?

ditto ... des Arts Modernes? (although the obverse doesn't really count as "modern art", I wouldn't have thought...)

Tournoi d’Athlétisme Inter-Académies Militaires (Western European Military Cadets Athletic Meeting)? Just a guess. Couldn't find information about 1955.

I did some image searches for Renard's work but didn't find any examples with this exact design. I couldn't decipher the initials on the reverse either.
