Hey are you military veterans out there I talked to you the other day and I thought it was a token which it is but it wasn’t this clean I found where one was sold but they won’t say how much which I really don’t care but it doesn’t give me information on what years was it used.I sure do love it

St Michael has become the Patron Saint of LEO and the Military. The St Michael medallion has been in use continuously for many years in many various styles. It has been available at Catholic Church stores, Military Exchanges, online stores, jewelry kiosks and stores for many years.

You'd either need to find a catalog or someone who remembers buying one in that particular style to date it. I'll continue to look with different search parameters and see if I can find one similar to yours.

I know it doesn't answer your question......

No that was something that I needed to hear because I’ve seen all the varieties of them but I just couldn’t find that one I have with a date but hey I love me some Jesus so I got it. My mother used to pray to Saint Michael’s when she lost something we’re not Catholic she would make us watch a little bit on TV on Sunday mornings and then she shuffle us out the door lol

At one time St.Michael was known as the patron saint of paratroopers.Hard to find a 82nd Airborne trooper who wasn,t wearing one.I,m a Marine vet,you don,t want to know who,s the patron saint of Marines.

The 29 Sept day they mention/referenced in the worthpoint ad is St Michaelmas Day or the Feast Of Saints, amongst other names.


When the local preacher found out my parent's picked Michael for my name, he tried to talk them out of it. Said the boy would be nothing but trouble. Years later my parents brought that conversation up and said they should have listened to him, and that his warning was an understatement........
