I recently purchased a couple dozen Shriner, Mason, and Masonic jewelry items at an estate sale. I had the opportunity to speak with the seller and she said these items belonged to her father. The father passed away in 1982 and she's held on to these items since then. She said they would all be from the 1970s or earlier.
The official emblem of the Mystic Shrine is the Crescent. It consists of two royal Bengal tiger claws in a gold setting by a keystone. Between the two tiger claws is the head of a Sphinx. Towards the bottom is the Star of Bethlehem with a small red stone. The outer area is circled with brilliantly shining aurora borealis stones. The pin measures 1.25 inches across.
Although small, when wrapped it will exceed the postal limit of 1/4 inch for regular First Class mail. It will have to be mailed as a First Class Parcel. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $3.99.
I gladly combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items fit safely into a single package. It is best if possible to contact me first to let me know which items you'll be purchasing so that I can adjust the shipping charges, otherwise at checkout you will be charged the full shipping fee for each item. Should that happen, and if appropriate to do so, I refund a portion of those charges.
NOTE - With this year's postal increase, all shipping charges increased and international shipping took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
