Looking for the most accurate version of the Miraculous Medal - Slayer - 03-19-2015

Does anyone know where I can find the most accurate version of the Miraculous Medal? Or perhaps even the one original produced by Adrien Vachette.

There are many different styles it seems but I just want the most accurate one made based on the instructions to create one.  Of course, the more detail, the better.

I would like to give one to a Muslim in hopes it would be instrumental in a conversion. However, does the wearer need to say a specific prayer at all when wearing the medal or does it just need to be bless?

I have a keychain sized one that's apparently identical to the pectoral one used by the Franciscans of the Immaculate, when I showed mine to one of them. It's pretty detailed, you might look into getting one of those. But it's not a charm that confers magical powers when designed in the exact right way.

Do you have it on your keychain? From what I understand, you are suppose to wear it. Does being a stickler for accuracy and detail make one view objects as charms?

If you want to get it right out of devotion, no. If you're doing it because you think it won't "work" unless it's exactly right, yes.
