    About 4 years ago I was looking online for a nice pair of vintage masonic cufflinks to wear to my lodge meetings. It was my real first foray into shifting through the tens of thousands of masonic items listed online at places like Ebay. I stumbled across this great vintage masonic pin and was totally blown away by the design and craftsmanship. I just had to have this pin! I started trying to research this pin and suddenly discovered the amazing world of pre 1940 fraternal jewelry. The hand detailed craftsmanship in the items I was seeing was nothing like any modern produced piece that I had ever seen. A collector was born. So this is the very first pin of my collection that now exceeds over 90 amazing antique & vintage masonic pins (1800-1930). I plan on sharing my collection here as I get time to take more pictures.

    This is a vintage masonic 10K gold and enameled screw back lapel pin (circa 1930) that measures ~3/8" x 3/8". It has a great patriotic design with the Stars & Striped enameled shield back drop for the Square & Compass. I've never run across another one like it.
