I think our metal disc is an old electroplated disc, 160mm wide,with a religeous scene of the last supper in one corner and the pope down the bottom.
I think it is made of brass. Central figure is virgin Mary, lots of religeous angels around the edge. Can you tell me how old this might be.Cannot find a registration number.
Thank you, Glenda
