ITEM: From France, a silverplate medal celebrating a child's Confirmation. the front depicts children (boys and girls) being Blessed by a Priest. The back has a shield upon which the initials of a child, and date, can be engraved.
CONDITION: Very nice - very shiny - very detailed which does NOT show well in my photos (sorry).

FINAL COMMENTS: Of course any Catholic would know the difference between Confirmation and First Communion - but here's a lay person's explanation. Confirmation is a sacrament involving the laying on of hands and anointing with oil; through it you receive the Holy Spirit. First Communion is the first time you receive the Eucharist, that is, the true Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ in the form of bread and wine.
