9 kt Gold Masonic Wax Seal - FOB

      

   

This is one of the most extraordinary three dimensional Masonic Wax Seals this curator has ever seen!  It is English made with hallmarks that tell us it was made by "TAB" in 9 carat gold (.375).  It stands about 1 inch high and the diameter is about 5/8 of an inch.  The seal on one side and then again on the bottom appears to have the keystone letters "K,S,H,T,W,S,S,T" in the usual chapter penny circle which certainly gives it a Royal Arch background.  It also used to have an eyelet ring at the apex of the Compasses which means that it was once worn around the neck on a chain.

Below are are few other examples of similar wax seal fobs
