This medal was won by Greb in 1922 for winning a light heavyweight bout. Billy Conn had it as part of his personal memorabilia collection, because he was such a fan of Greb's. One of Billy Conn's sons gave it to Joel Platt to borrow but Platt turned around and sold it instead of returning it to the Conn family.
