Lovely large old medal for Our Lady of Altenberg, the Virgin Mary. On the front Mary is standing, holding the young Jesus in her arms with Guadalupe style rays decorations surrounding them, and Mary is Crowned as well. On the back "Our Lady of Altenberg Pray for Us, Blessed by Pope Pius XI Holy Year 1925". Altenberg is in Germany. Wow, what a find, this has been in our personal collection for years, well loved. It is of a thick aluminum or similar metal with nice silver tone and it will polish! It is a large medal, measuring 1 & 3/4" tall including the top loop. It is in good condition with only slight wear. We have never seen another one of these, and with this one being dated and also with the Pope present, it is a fine item for the collector.
