Description: - Die-cut golden brass medal, with Flat Handle, without ring, probably from some Jesuit Association, located in the second half of the 20th century. In the measure of the Diameter the Handle has not been considered.
- The high relief of the medal has a good quality. As it is made of brass with a gold bath, it is preserved in a magnificent state, providing a beautiful patina over time.
- Front: Logo or Monogram with the initials JHS interlaced between them, with a very small cross in its superior part, and some solar rays with center in the own Symbol. On its perimeter it has the legend "QUAERITE PRIMUM REGNUM DEI", which translated would be "Seek first the Kingdom of God".
- Back: Crown of two bundles of tenons, joined by a ribbon. In the centre it has the legend "SIT BONIS MORIBUS LAUDI", which translated would be "Good morals are worthy of praise".
- The JHS monogram was used by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesuits, and therefore became his symbol. The most accepted theory is that it corresponds to the first three letters, in Greek and in capital letters, of the name "Jesus". Another theory is that they correspond to the initials of the Latin phrase "Iesus Hominum Salvator", which translated would be "Jesus savior of men".
- We have not found any Contrast or Distinction in the Medal, which gives us the data of the identity of its authors.

Comments: - Both measurements and weight are approximate.
- Very interesting as a collector's item.
- Because it is inevitable the differences of tonalities between photos and reality, you must have in mind that the tones of the colors of the photos are not exactly equal to the tones of the real colors.
- The object shows the wear and tear of its time, as well as some stains. It has small flaws.
- The data provided here are non-contrasting personal opinions.
SHIPMENTS ARE MADE ON MONDAYS.
