Hi, I went out to the beach this morning to test out a new detector( simplex+ ) and found this tiny little charm near the beach volleyball courts in the first few minutes. Can anyone ID it.? It is only about a half inch in diameter and appears to be religious but not sure what religion. I don't know if it would be silver or some other type of metal. The attachment point has a break in it and that is probably why it was in the sand.! The other photo is just of the other junk and a nice sunrise along the sand.

Thanks for any info.

Catholic St Benedict medallion. Can't tell you what yours is made from, but they have been made of gold, silver and non precious metals.

Here's what your find would look like detail wise.


Yep. There's more information on what the lettering means here:

Wow, that looks much nicer than mine.! The one I found has a bit of a "goldish" color in the right light, but probably is not gold. Thanks for the information.
