The Wallace Peace Doves were only offered for eight years, making it one of the most limited editions offered in the 1970's. They were offered in all sterling, gold plated vermeil, and a combination of sterling and vermeil. The medallions offered here are all sterling. The sterling ornaments for the first three years were dull finish. In 1974 they started making them with a shiny finish.
Only the first three years were enameled on the back. Subsequent years were all sterling. They also started reducing the size after 1975. These ornaments are SOLID sterling silver as opposed to many of the other popular ornaments / series that are hollow. None have a box, pouch or romance card, but they will be carefully packed in individual, tarnish reducing zip lock bags for safe transportation and storage.
All appear to be in like new condition with very little evidence of polishing abrasions. None of the ornaments are damaged, dinged, dented or bent. Poor photography does not do justice to the incredible workmanship and detail the actual ornaments portray. If by some small chance your item is not satisfactory, your return should still be received within 7 days or less.
