Masonic Book Fob

from the Collection of Wor. Bro. Paul McEvoy

Some of the other items found on this watch chain are the Monster size Invert ball 9ct gold and silver interior that weighs 16grams and is about 21mm diameter.  Square and compass working compass 9ct.   Maul Fob 9ct gold and silver.  Pyramid fob 9ct gold and silver.  The item on the end is a very rare 3 color Sampson Mordan Triple pencil. 9ct gold dates to around 1880-1890 that is not Masonic but the right thing to add to the end, it fits in with the other bits and bobs.  If you look very closely at the top it also has a PMC for my initials, that came of an old broken Past Master Councilor jewel.
