    Dave ~

    Thanks for the additional pictures. If someone could accurately date even one piece, it "might" date all of it.

    Lastly for the time being ...

    Here's a link that explains various aspects of the Miraculous Medal, including the first good reference I've seen regarding the M/Cross

    AMM | Story of the Miraculous Medal

    “Full of grace” and “Blessed among women” (Luke 1:28)—was proclaimed in 1854.

    There are millions of these medals and they are very tough to date.

    I suggested earlier to research when STERLING was first used on silver because I forgot.

    You may also research when aluminum became less valuable.
    During the Civil War aluminum was more valuable than gold so anything aluminum is at least after that.


    Yes 1830 is the event, not the date of the medal.

    There were some old Jesuit crosses found in Pensacola posted here to compare if you can find the threads. I think found by Pcolaboy or a similar name.

    I'm beginning to think the M is for Mary or Miraculous/Medal and not a hallmark.

    Correct the M is definitely not a hallmark. I thought you would see that when I posted the Miraculous Medal link. What I thought might be a hallmark is STERLING and the Sterling stamp is a huge clue to dating this ring.

    Im leaning toward early 20th century on most if not all of these Catholic items.

    I have positively dated some of the medals as 20th century but Im not sure yet but some may be a bit older late 1800's (in my opinion).

    I found one of the old threads of an old Jesuit crucifix. Brass Cross Compare to see if any of your crucifixs have a skull and crossbones, ladder or any of the Arma Christi instruments used in Christ's torture and crucifixion.

    That (above)may be a little too old for this find. Check this very informative link on 1800's crucifixes to compare. Rosary Workshop: Rosary - Museum Crucifixes - (Early Latin American)

    I would at least have that crown checked out. How do you know the ages of the other stuff? Do they have hallmarks?

    Some of the crosses have Italy on them and a few have Roma.

    D Dave ~

    I'm not sure if this will help in any way, but I wonder if your little (Statue/Doll/Infant of Prague) crown has been stretched out of shape? All of the others like it that I've seen are squatty and/or more rounded looking like the one's pictured below.

    It probably is. It had to be pulled from the dirt which was packed around it from being in the ground so long.
