    I love this! This pin is for the secret society fraternal organization called "Order Of Owls". This society really took of in 1904, and I believe was one of the only fraternal based society's that was not based or founded on religious views. Very short lived society, not much memorabilia on these guys. I have a nice piece from the owls I'll post soon. Lovely Pin.

    O.O.O Motto!
    "There is so much bad in the best of us,
    And so much good in the worst of us,
    It hardly behooves any of us
    To speak ill of the rest of us".

    Thanks for the compliment ;) I do try. I dabble slightly in collecting fraternal related items. I like the owl's. No problem, glad to have helped. I do wonder what the victory inscription is for though.

    I wonder if they go together...

    I have seen a screw pack pin like this before, so more then likely they pair correct. I like that the pin dates 1900 also. Early before the takeover of Talbot. I want to say if I remember correctly that the early original owl's started in 1890's and it is so very hard to find early stuff from this group, which makes your pin just a little more desirable if you ask me.
