Gold Order of the Eastern Star poem
This is a rare ORDER of the EASTERN STAR masonic print with GOLD applied.
The original plate is from the late 1800s and has been fully restored. This is a highly detailed piece of art that is printed on a high quality bond paper that gives the appearance of parchment. THE PHOTOS ARE TERRIBLE AND DO NOT DO THIS PIECE JUSTICE
ORDER OF EASTERN STAR
The Blue of the sky thar bends above us speaks of FIDELITY
the Yellow of the garnered sheaf inspires us to CONSTANCY
the White of the lily breathes of LIGHT, PURITY and JOY
So also the Red of the rose reminds us of TRUTH, FERVENCY, and CHARITY.
and the Green of the grass justifies our FAITH in IMMORTALITY.
These with Lovingkindness, bind us together in the GOLDEN CHAIN of FRIENDSHIP -
whose links are bright with the blessing of the Diving Master of the Universe GOD
High Grade 1794 Masonic Currency
The Sketchley masonic token was minted by Bro James Sketchley in 1794. While in circulation, this coin was worth one half penny. This particular specimen is in outstanding condition. Border text clearly reads: I. SCETCHLEY FECIT 1794 X MASONIC TOKEN. This is one of the nicest sketchley tokens we have. Notice the still intact detailing on the beaver, the dots of the tail and the ribs. Also unblemished is the detail on the globe and feathers of the bird. The second set of photos is the same coin but with auto-levels applied to the image. The second set is more true to how the coin appears in normal lighting. The first set is more how it would appear in bright daylight. The black background coin is provided for comparison.
