The medal is signed in script below the image and PP X, denoting Pope Pius X. The reverse features "Depose" on the bottom , along with the Date 1933 & PIUS XI inscribed. The cross which is part of the art medal reads "Blessed by the Holy Father". Silver metal medal with patina. 1.5" long plus bail, 1" wide. In perfect as found condition, has not been cleaned. **This appears to have been blessed by Pope Pius X and Pope Pius XI which would make the medal older (1904-1914) than the date inscribed
