This vintage Mother Mary medallion is quite substantial in size and features The Blessed Mother Virgin Mary on the front along with sculptural Latin font which translates to ¨HAIL FULL OF GRACE / THE LORD IS WITH THEE / MARIANA FEDERATION". The reverse is adorned with three saints and a single lily (symbolic of purity and devotion). Latin font adorns the border and translates to "HELPER AND PROTECTO/ HE BECAME /ONE HEART ONE SOUL". Under the loop on the reverse is what appears to be a silver maker mark of Italian origin.
