An estate sale find! You are bidding on THE POPES OF THE XX CENTURY commemorative coin set. Each "coin" is about quarter size. It shows the Pope in profile in nice detail. The back is also richly engraved in decoration and gives the term of the Pope's years of service. The coins are as follows:

St. Pius X

Benedict XV

Pius XI

Pius XII

John XXIII

Paul VI

The set is accompanied with a descriptive card listing the Pope's by name and dates in 4 languages. The sculptors and engravers are also listed. The card is marked "Made In Italy". The set folds and is protected in a yellow vinyl case that is also marked "Made in Italy" on the back. I was told these coins are pewter but I don't see any markings, nor a date. Mild soiling to vinyl case, otherwise mint. A nice Catholic collectible. Winning bidder to pay $3.00 First Class shipping/handling. Good luck!
