1830 religious catholic pendant.

#1 Unread post by Astemle01 »

I found a silver religious pendant the other day detecting. I was wondering if it’s vintage or something newer. I found some like it online but can’t find the same design. Any thoughts?

Yes. I posted 2 pics. One of each side. I’m pretty sure they are both posted.

In 1830, St. Catherine Laboure received an apparition of the Blessed Virgin and was instructed to strike a medal in Mary's honor. The inscription on the front of the medal reads "0 Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. 1830" Mary stands upon a globe and is crushing a snake beneath her feet.
It marks the year 1830 as important symbol . I found on a few years ago. nice find
