Nice older large medal for beloved Saint Christopher. He is shown carrying the baby Jesus in lovely detail and high relief, surrounded by St Christopher Protect Us". On the back it is marked "RGB (we think) then sterling" , so we think this was originally gold wash over sterling, with only some of the gold or brass color left. We have never cleaned or polished this medal, as we always loved it the way it was. It measures 1" across and is in good condition with the afore mentioned loss of finish, but still beautiful. It is very heavy for the size.
