I inherited this Shriner Masonic Claw Pin and I want to know more about it.

It is just under 2 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches tall, including the sword. It is stamped 14k gold on the back of the sword.

The claws look like real claws, but I am not sure. There is a Leys engraved on the piece. We have seen others on the web, but none of them are as large as this one.

It weighs in at 23.2 grams total weight. Can you give us any more information on it?

Thanks, Janice

It is a Past Potentate Jewel for the Shrine. I have one similar. The claws on mine are actually of animal origin. Either Eagle claws or Tiger claws.

It is worth quite a bit of money. I found mine in a pawn shop over 25 years ago. If the Scimitar or Sword as you call it, was not there it wouldn't be a Past Potentate Jewel. Its purpose was as a Watch Fob.

Thank you
