$1 Million Medal: Historic Owens Medal to be Auctioned by SCP Auctions

One of the most famous Olympic medals is hitting the auction block. SCP Auctions president David Kohler says his company has acquired one of the four gold medals won by Jesse Owens in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin and will sell it to the highest bidder on Dec. 7. Kohler believes the medal could sell for more than $1 million, especially since he said the Owens family is unclear about the whereabouts of the other three gold medals.
