The octagon shaped celluloid fob measures 1-3/4'' wide. It appears to be in near mint condition with only very light wear as pictured.
As a strange side note about this item, it was found among many other small religious items in a hidden locked metal box in the attic of a Gilmington, New Hampshire home by the current owner. The home was once that of the infamous serial killer Herman Webster Mudgett (1861 - 1896) known as ''the most prolific murderer known in recent criminal History.''. We are sure that it did not belong to him, but thought it was worth mentioning where it was found.
