Please note that solid silver French medals are ALWAYS stamping with 1 or 2 punches, the first , the " losange" or diamond-shaped, is the stamp of maker, the second, the most important is often a boar or a crab, certifying genuine silver. A french medal with only a diamond-shape punch is silver plate or another metal but no solid silver.
All solid silver french religious medals are 800, not sterling. Sterling is minimum 925/1000.
In France, the sterling silver is 950, his punch is "Minerve".(minerva).The 800 punch is reserved for " petits ouvrages" ( littles works) like the medals.


On May 1, 1835, St. Catherine Laboure told her Spiritual Director of a revelation she had received from the Blessed Virgin Mary during a series of apparitions she received in the Convent of the Rue du Bac, Paris, from 1830: "It is the Blessed Virgin's wish that you should found a Confraternity of the Children of MARY. She will give them many graces. The month of May will be kept with great splendour and MARY will bestow abundant blessings upon them."

The Children of Mary organization flourished in the mid 20th century. Young women went through a period of aspirancy of six months prior to acceptance as a fully fledged child of Mary, who had the right to wear the distinctive blue cape and carry the blue cape of a Child of Mary.
