Please note that same medal prices vary, based on condition and appearance.

This medal dates from the 18th century. It is 1.25 inches long and weighs 22 grams of bronze. It is an originalmedal from my late mother’s vast estate collection of Catholic Medals (Bertha; the founder of Church-Woman Antiques). Her notes tell us that these are from a lot that washed up on a beach; the patina is typical of similar medals that wash up from Spanish shipwrecks, as these medals have minor metal pitting on their surface. These medals were soaked for months in fresh water, then coral that was stuck to its surface was removed.

This medals dating can be confirmed on pages 2 & 3 of the book AN INTRODUCTION TO RELIGIOUS MEDALS, by Bob Forrest, and published by NUMISMATICA INTERNATIONAL in 2004.

In addition this book has chapters (outlined in the table of contents), describing each of the categories of medals, their possible place of pilgrimage (acquisition), and origin of the mint where they were made. We recommend that anyone serious about collecting medals from this period, acquire a copy of this book.

We stand behind our description with a 100% refund upon the medals return in the same condition as in the pictures. Please see our 10 year response score and read our client's comments before offerding.

Thank you for your kind heart, and good luck offerding!
