Seller: church-woman (22,078) 100% , Location: Miami, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 352251461368 Please note that same medal prices vary, based on condition and appearance. This medal is 2 inches long and weighs 34 grams of bronze. It is an original medal 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.The medals in our auctions have been inspected by reputable numismatic dealers, and their 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.
