When the original Duncan company went bankrupt in the early 1960's, Strombecker toys bought the equipment from Duncan, but NOT the Duncan name, and began producing their own line of yo-yos under the Medalist name. A BIG business mistake to not buy the Duncan name at the same time. Their line of yo-yos was not successful, and medalist disappeared after only a few short years.

Pictured here is the Trickmaster, the one piece tournament from Medalist. The logo looks out of focus, but is not. The die stamp appears to have shifted slightly when this one was made, giving that appearance.
