is a fine quality 14k gold Masonic pin. This pin is shaped like a shield.
There is a black enamel border along the edges, and along the compasses in the
center. The square of the compass is set with tiny pearls. Two
small pearls are missing, although they are easily replaceable with small seed
pearls. This pin is engraved on the reverse: "W.S.D." in Gothic
script, "Christmas" and "1868" in script. This
is a very early Masonic piece of jewelry. Many Masonic pieces were made in the
latter part of the 1800's and early 1900's. It
measures 3/4 inch by 11/16 inch.
