    These two pin were in a grab bag from a local thrift shop. Under $10 for the entire bag. The red masonic pin is rare according to the research I found on it. However, this exact pin was not found, similar but the exact - I don't even know what category these pins should be in.

    Any thoughts?

      This pin features the third seal of the Order of Demolay, introduced in 1932 and discontinued in 1949. It is actually not a Masonic pin, although the two are very close, they are not the same order.
      Extremely notable, are the ten pearls. Each of the ten represents one of the nine original members of the order and "Dad" Frank S. Land.White jewels represent a living member, and are replaced with a red one to show their death.
      Today, all of the jewels are red.
