ARTIFACT: This item is a sash badge for what is known as the Loyal Order of Moose. This organization, that totes almost one million members, is a major charity group, conducting approximately $75 million of community service through donations and volunteer work. This badge is three dimensional with a bronze moose head emerging from the inner circle of the aluminum badge. Under the moose reads the title of the member that this belongs too, that being the "SECRETARY." Just above those words are the letters "P.A.P." which stands for "Purity, Aid, &Progress."

VINTAGE: Late 1900's

SIZE: Approximately 3-5/8" x 3" x 1-3/4

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Bronze moose with an aluminum base

ATTACHMENT: N/A

MARKINGS: "LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE. P.A.P. SECRETARY. LODGE.
Maker's Mark: "CLEV. METAL SPECIALTIES CO. CLEVELAND O."

ITEM NOTES: This is from a Loyal Order of Moose collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MEJZ15 LDGEX01/17

CONDITION: 7+ (Very Fine+): There is a bit of verdegris on the bronze, but it doesn't detract from the overall condition. Very minimal to light wear. The moose is held on by screws to the back, which are still in decent condition. The moose head is three dimensional and in two pieces, where the back antler is slightly moveable (not removable).

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
