Lovely old large medal of the Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Lourdes with the detailed image on the front in cameo; and on the back the vision of her apparition in the grotto at Lourdes France to Saint Bernadette. The medal is signed , we think the initials are OBC, but this is a guess due to the mild age wear on the metal. This medal is of a silver tone metal that resembles sterling, but we see no marking and the French were famous for metals that had the look but not the content. It measures 1 & 1/8" tall including the loop and it is almost 3/4" across. It is in very good condition with mild age wear from being loved and touched, but very little wear.
