The item is a Saint Patrick's medal with a 24 " long silver chain. The chain will have no catch. If you want me to put one on I will at no charge. The back of the medal is plain and it can be engraved. The medal is 23 millimeters wide just under a inch. I will provide a pendant box. When he was 16, he was captured from his home in Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland , where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering the church, he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop in the north and west of the island., places where he worked. I have to put this together so please allow a week for me to ship it.
