Default Sterling Religious pendants

I recently found a sterling Religious pendant to add to my small collection. As I was putting it away, I realized how much I like these things and how much the varieties differ in design. Here's the few I have, please add to this post with yours. Also, does anyone know what the 25 stamp under the Dove means on the bottom, 2nd pendant ? Thanks!

Got that on video...live dig.
Plus I called it, or wished for it, right before I dug it.
That will never happen again.

Awesome idea for a thread!

I've always enjoyed finding old crosses and such..

Great finds everyone!

I'm going to try to get my sterling together for a group shot..

Counting Muslim as a religion, I've found a lot of gold too, otherwise, 4 or 5, 6..? Have to think about that..

I like that gold cross and chain you pulled, still one of my favorite finds I've ever seen in person by anyone, Jbrow.

Thanks! I'm not sure what it's from. I did a google search and didn't find anything.

No clue what the 25 means, but I found a person on Pinterest with the exact one, saying it's vintage from the 40's.......

Lots of really nice find there guys!

Found this silver St. Michael medal a few weeks ago. Most religious medals I find are made from some sort of aluminum alloy.
