***About our antique and vintage medals:***
These pieces have been culled from private collections and estates from all over the country, Canada and parts of Europe.
In the course of collecting for our own growing collection, we have acquired a mass cache of duplicates, which we offer here for sale.
Our descriptions are based on our own extensive knowledge of dating items, and while we are not extremely well-versed in religion, we do exhaustive internet research and consult various experts on the subject.
When offering more than one of a same design, there may be tiny, hardly noticeable variations due to the nature of the medals.
Aluminum is our favorite material, and pieces made of aluminum are often also the most detailed. They generally hold up very well. This metal has been used by artisans since the late 1800s, and although now thought of to be a cheap, disposable medium--back then it wasn't quite as plentiful or inexpensive.
We also offer a variety of new-old-stock vintage religious medals and crucifixes in our shop.
