Unknown masonic? star

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Recently I bought a lot with different masonic medals from the Netherlands, Turkey, and England. In this lot, there is also one star I cannot identify. Does somebody here recognize it?

I have encountered this badge before but have never been able to find out what it is, I would be delighted if someone out there can come up with the answer.

Thank you Hermann. I made a pretty good deal. The lot contained around 10 Freemason decorations and I paid less than 180 euro ;)

About the badge. A quick Google search showed this image: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gro%C3%9Fe_National-Mutterloge_%E2%80%9EZu_den_drei_Weltkugeln%E2%80%9C#/media/File:F-Hochgr-gruen.jpg

It is not a clear picture, but I think it is 99% sure that it is the same badge. Apparently it is the badge for the "Schottenmeister der GNML (3WK)".

The price of 180 euro is not really that trustworthy. It was also for sale for 98 euro: http://www.ma-shops.com/mueller/item.php5?id=15292&lang=en

Sorry mates this is not masonic. As I wrote above all masonic bijou must have a masonic sign on it.  It is imitation. Only masons can understand if an object is masonic or not.  Sorry I insist.

Henk,

you also find this image on the Wikipedia website of the GNML, that I have already posted.

Tosun,

if that's so, I'm out of the game.

Now I am 100% sure that it is Masonic. I contacted the Altschottischer Obermeister (Oldscottish Headmaster) of the Grand National Motherlodge of Germany and he replied:

the information you got is right. The Rectified Scottish Rite which you find in Switzerland and Belgium are reated to The Allgemeine Altschottische Loge. During the centuries only parts of the RSR had survived in Germany. The Pictures show the Members Jewel of AASL. It is the 4th Degree of Große National Mutterloge „Zu den 3 Weltkugeln“. Grand National Motherlodge of the three globes.
