Denver Elks Pin from 1914
This is an old Elks pin that has a goldtone elk’s head on a shield marked “BPOE” for Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks. Between the antlers of the elk is a white enamel clock set at 11:00 o’clock. Below the shield is a purple enamel ribbon that reads “Denver 1914”. Hanging from the goldtone pi is a silvertone pendant shaped lilke an ingot that reads “The Scenic Mining Camp of the World, Aspen, Colo”. Below the ingot is the number “224” in red enamel representing the lodge that is located in Aspen. The back of the silvertone pendant is signed “ROBBINS CO” and “ATTLESBORO MASS”. Considering this pin’s age, it is in really good condition. There is a bit of wear on the face of the elk and some where the pendant’s chains rubbed on the goldtone metal. C clasp is in good working condition. 3″ tall by 2″ wide. A wonderful piece of lodge history.
