Shrine of North America 

Potentate's Scepter

This Shrine of North America Scepter was apart of the ceremonial dress that the Temple Potentate wore when conferring a degree on a new candidate!  This scepter is 31 inches long and made of brass.  (It was probably gold plated at one time.)  It pictures a pyramid at the top supported by crescent moons and a jeweled base.  The picture below shows a Potentate from LuLu Shrine Temple holding a similar scepter.
