Hi, I'm new here. My first day. I have around 300 MEDALS/CROSSES/PENDANTS/CHARMS dating back to I believe 1700's. I was hoping to make some friends here as I've been coin collecting for years and now I am currently getting into religious items. Please leave any input on what medals are the earliest of this collection. image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg
 

intresting collection...i too enjoy medals...you have to be careful on jumping to date of manufacture....because so many have been made through the years....you will know when you have a 1600 to 1700 piece....i would say in my opinion ...these to be 1800s and up...if 1700s i would say late if at all....im still learning myself....you will know an early jesuit one when u see it....look for signs of age ...patina...wear....opalescence (evidence of being in the ground)...typology and bust....provenance.... etc......goodluck....try n find a book that deals specifically with this subject..
