Here's the cross on the right. It's a bit expensive, but it's the exact thing.


Edit: They have the middle one too.


Wonderful! Thank you very much!

The 5-way cross is dead on :)

The Lady of Perpetual help looks similar, but not exact. It looks like there are accurate ones out there. Any clues on those??

EDIT: I just found the 'Our Lady Of Perpetual Help' medal! You guys are already bringing me luck :)

Yes, I can help. The round was was made by creed and is extremely hard to find these days. You will just have to search the hard way. Try looking on ebay under the lots. You might find one in a group/lot. Search for 6 Creed Sterling Silver All Saints Devotions 4 Way Medal. The other is the "Virgin Mary Perpetual Help" Look for that and you should find it.

Hi Joe310blk & Tenaciousbt!

Awesome work on this!!!!

I've started putting together this prop too and I'm doing ok finding most of the medals. I've found and bought 6 out of 9 medals so far:

But I'm a bit stuck on the last three:

I've got ideas about what to look for... but can you guys give anymore clues? Some good search terms? Is it just hardcore eBay'ing or are they still made like the others?
You found the tear dropped shaped virgin mary? The one on the far left? I could never find the exact one. Can we see it? ;)

Just found out that the front of this medal was glued on. I just had to heat it up and it came right off. I'll use this and make an impression on the mold for the medal. I'll make it from pewter or aluminum. It should look 99.9% accurate. More to come...

Yes and no! Basically I have what you have: The Mary and Child part on a wrong background. But in pewter/silver (???). Like you I'm going to make the teardrop shaped background for the accurate part :)

Will follow your progress on yours with great interest!

But... in addition to that I have found something during my search that is somekind of proof that they exist out there. This is gold pendant with the same shape and motif:

I'm missing only one medal now, the Miraculous Medal with 7 Devotions. My only hope is to find one on eBay/Etsy since it's discontinued at the shop that sold it online...

If any of you guys come across one that you can spare, please, please, please let me know!!!!

A couple of years ago on the catholic collectibles web site, was so called available when ordered they returned my funds stating , this silver 4 way medal is out stock, discontinued, but by some dumb luck I saw it on eBay with chain for only $ 18.00 dollars, it was $50 dollars on the site if your look it up it’s still there. One final note its such a nice looking pendant I don’t why it was discontinued

I've tried contacting that webshop, but they're not turning my messages. Yes it's too bad! I've also contacted several antique dealers who specialize in religious medals and they all say: Wow, that's such a nice medal!

I'll find one on eBay someday! Or I'll get a 3D printed one in silver. In the meantime I have all the others and can start working on the wires that hold the pendants...

So I am have been doing 2 from the beginning. One for me and one to sell. Honestly the only reason is because I had 3 Corbin keys. I sold one to Joe and kept 2 for the project.

I noticed something about the second "All Saints Devotional 4 way". It wasn't originally made by creed. It was made by Hayward. Honestly I think creed simply bought the rights and made a mold right off the Hayward, replacing Hayward with Creed. The Hayward had just a bit more detail and sharpness and it's so much older. I looked at the Prop Store pics and unfortunately the picture of the back of the medals doesn't contain the detail to make out whether theirs was Creed or Hayward. I suspect hayward. They had older antique versions of all these medals.

BTW, the Corbin is called "CORBIN # 8682L HTN1-12 SERIES" It's was beyond extremely difficult to find. I hunted down several antique key collectors to help me Id the "exact" one and eventually I found one that had some. He just happened to have 3. I bought them all. The second key was named in the original prop store keys, but finding one without any printed numbers on it was impossible. Thanks to Joe for that.

Thank you for the precious info!!

Will you keep me in the loop if you decide to part with your second set? I know I already have the other medals, but I'm very keen on obtaining the Hayward/Creed medal... and the keys for that matter! :)

I think the set will fetch quite the price, but I'll post here when I list it. Of course, everyone will be welcome to bid.

First attempt at my blank. I think I need to do another one. After I get that right I will mold it and cast it in pewter. Don't worry the final one will have the sun rays and hole punched.

Cool, thank you! I'll keep a close eye on this thread so I can get in on that auction :)

EDIT: I received this today. Looks good!

WARNING:

Anybody looking for this medal:

Our lady.jpg


Be aware of this company:


What you receive is not what you get... to say the least! Left is what they advertise, right is what you get:

Our lady of perpetual help medal scam.png


Totally reminded me of this beautiful piece of work. Maybe they hired the same artist? :lol::lol::lol:

So... now two and not one medal missing, which is frustrating, but it's starting to look like something anyway:

Where did you get the one circled? I found a close match for my second set, but it's only 99% accurate. Maybe I can still get one in the same place you got yours.
