Good condition vintage Our Lady of Guadalupe pendant or religious medal. The medal is marked 925 Mexico and also has a makers mark- that I can't make out. The medal has a hollow a sound, so I believe it is repousse. The medal measures approximately 1 & 3/8ths inches tall without the bail. This is a lovely vintage medal and a nice size.

Old Vintage- likely antique French religious medal for St Anne de Beaupre- the medal says Bonne ste Anne de Beaupre on the back. The medal measures approximately 15/16ths of an inch tall including the bail. It is a gold colored medal- that likely has some gold content. It is untested because it is very thin and delicate. There is the slightest bend in the medal- that only shows on the back. I have sold many souvenirs of St Anne de Beaupre- but never one like this special one.
