Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: Found in France, here's a gold tone, maybe more brass tone than gold, religious medal featuring the Virgin Mary to the front (Miraculous Medal) and Jesus among children to the back. At the bottom where Jesus stands are written AFRICA and ASIA. I think this medal is meant to represent missionaries bringing Christianity to these regions.
