St. Anne 3rd Class with Swords - Opinions Pls


Recommended Posts


Just picked up this "Antique Victorian Religious Medal" off eBay. The order looks good to my eye but i know very little about such things.

I will say the suspension loop appears to be hallmarked and the suspension ring as well although all i can make out is a 6. The also appears to be 2 hallmarks on the revers top and bottom arm which i have a hard time making out. I'll work on getting some nice close ups posted soon.

What do you all think?

This is from an non-expert on St. Anne's but I'll try my best to notice some things and then an expert can confirm or deny these observations.

It looks ok on the front except the swords seem a bit harsher than usual, but the reverse is pretty harsh in the soldering and attachment of the swords. If you can get those close ups it would be useful :)

Could you get a picture of the loop (where the 56 hallmark should be not the larger loop that attaches the order to the ribbon), it looks like it cracked or came apart in the middle.

From the color on the pictures it appears almost bronze gilt in the tone of color. I think it could very well be a Bronze Gilt Anne. It shows a lot of similarities to these pieces.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
