This is a Rare Circa 1860's United State Fraternal Uniform Buckle for the Ancient Order of Foresters in Silvered Bronze.
The society was formed in Rochdale in August 1834, when over 300 branches of the Royal Foresters society (established in the 18th century) formed the new Ancient Order of Foresters.
In 1874 the American and Canadian Foresters seceded from the Ancient Order of Foresters and set up the Independent Order of Foresters (IOF).
Approximately 2-15/16" in height x 1-13/16" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
This is from a fraternal organization collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MAJV18 LBDEX05/05/20
6(Very Fine): The buckle shows moderate wear and tarnish on both side, overall very fine condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
