Going through a bag of mixed coins I bought a few months ago, this little brass medallion (about the size of a US 1c coin) was in the bottom. It looks as though it once had a loop for hanging. Does anyone recognize it? Thanks!

@numisrob, it is always fun to find a religious medal in those mixed bags! With an inscription of SEP.B.F.O.S.M.V. and Mary with a bunch of swords on the other side, I think that this relates to the Seven Blessed Founders of the Servitas Order. Here is a link to a similar piece:

Here is the information provided with that medal:

They are commemorated on February 17, in which the last of them, Alejo (1310), died...
