    I do not know what this is. I have done a lot of research and I am absolutely stumped. At first I thought it was Masonic. This is what a friend wrote: "The effigy is of Cleopatra. July 1908 St.Pauls.....well, the MECCA part has me slightly confused,but I think it was a pendant made in London based. The stamp on the back, the date and markings (Aside from MECCA) point to either the Lambeth Conference at St.Pauls in London or the Olympics, hosted in London at the same time.....The only downside is I think there would be NO WAY a Catholic order, attending a Catholic conference, would have a pin that contains Muslim inferences."

    So what in the world is it? Will it stump all here, lol?

      Shriners Convention in St Paul July 14 and 15 1908.

      The Mecca Lodge was from New York.

      Thanks. I was aware of this event but I have seen other pins from this event. None have a Cleopatra emblem. I am still not sure if it is a Shriner, yet.

      July 1908 was the Arab Revolt or The Young Turks movement. Also there was the London Olympics> Could it have been a pin from the movement?
    4. stwillia76 stwillia76, 8 years ago
      You are probably right. Mecca Shriners of New York. But I can't find anything anywhere about this pin. Surely there is some reference or photo to back it up.
