Lovely masonic Knights Templar Pendant or watch fob amulet, circa 1880s, Victorian, double sided, unmarked but my testing acid holds firm at 10K, enameling, with a crown and cross symbol on one side, which is indicative of Knights Templar*,

Pendant is a nice weight and was originally a watch fob. It would make a wonderful pendant and collectible now. It has a little medieval helmet that looks as if it has been squeezed a bit and no longer has the little hinged piece that would sometimes move at the top.

On one side is the Knight's Templar symbol with the latin words around it.

From the online source cited below*:
In the context of the Knights Templar, the symbol of the cross and crown is referred to as the "Knights Templar's blood-red passion cross and crown." Oftentimes, this symbol is accompanied or surrounded by the Latin phrase "In Hoc Signo Vinces", meaning "By this sign thou shalt conquer".

On the other side is the Order of the Mark Master symbol, also sited below.**

If you are interested in the history of Knights Templar, I found this website:
https://study.com/academy/lesson/the-knights-templar-history-symbols-quiz.html

Despite that small apology regarding the little helmet, plus the minimal amount of white enamel wear from one side (the mark master symbol.**), this authentic 130-150 year old watch fob or pendant is in very good antique, used condition.

Make sure to view all photos and zoom in to see details. See the last photos for measurements, weight and scale. This is sold exactly as found and priced accordingly.

I've included a little costume, modern 22" study chain in case someone wants this as a necklace or pendant. The chain is FREE. It's just a costume chain that adds no substantial value to the item; it's included as a freebie and a courtesy.

PLEASE NOTE: SHIPPING INCLUDES REQUIRED INSURANCE COVERAGE.

I ship with the US Postal service and I am happy to discuss shipping options with you should you wish to use another service. Insurance is usually purchased separately from an outside party from the USPS. I base my shipping on current USPS prices. Oversized packages can be subject to a surcharge by the USPS. I'm happy to combine items to save on shipping costs.
Please do not return it. Items are insured through either the USPS or a third party. Simply save all packing materials and the item and contact me immediately for instructions. It's rare that a claim is necessary, but it does happen from time to time and can be a relatively simple and quick process to get your investment refunded.
Yes, I ship all over the globe. Please note that you may be charged customs fees in your country which are beyond my control. Shipping rates are based on first class mail with upgrades available upon request. The shipping fees stated includes insurance, which is required and generally adds about $2 per $100 of coverage to the shipping total.

I'm NOT responsible for any taxes or customs charges from other countries. If a package is not picked up and returned to me, I do not offer refunds on the item or on shipping costs. It's the customer's responsibility to retrieve their packages from their postal service or customs. Again: NO REFUND if package is returned to me.
Simply click on "SHIPPING & POLICIES" tab under the photo of the item you'd like, and your shipping price will be revealed based on your US zip code or international destination.

The shipping amount generally also includes insurance, which is purchased from an outside company. So when you receive your item, the package will often not reflect those insurance costs since it is bought online. You can go to www.usps.com to view the latest rates from which these shipping amounts are calculated.
FREE shipping on chosen items applies to first class domestic shipping and is considered a FINAL SALE. In the even of a return for any reason other than an item not being as described, my actual cost may be subtracted from the refund you receive.

EXAMPLES:

~A $100 brooch inc. FREE shipping, if returned, would receive $95 to account for my 1st class insured cost to ship, and customer is responsible for costs to ship back as well.

~A $500 brooch inc. FREE shipping, would get a refund of approx. $490 to account for my 1st class insured cost to ship.

FREE shipping offer is extended as a promotion & is VOIDED in the event of a return.

HOWEVER, if a return is due to MY mistake, there is NO cost to buyer for ANY shipping.
